Since they met in a Cambridge folk club 9 years ago, The Weepies have progressed from an indie duo playing house concerts, to ranks on the Billboard Charts. Though they now have sales in the hundreds of thousands, the Weepies have kept a surprisingly low profile; they haven't toured at all since 2006. "Our son was born right as we finished HIDEAWAY," (Nettwerk, 2008) says Steve Tannen. "Touring was out. It was a huge change from the 180 shows of the SAY I AM YOU release (Nettwerk, 2006)." The band was kept in the spotlight by dozens of uses in TV shows and films, including a prominent campaign ad for Barack Obama. This fall (2010) they head out on the road with a new record (Be My Thrill--also out on Nettwerk) two kids, a band and a bus.
