Busy pursuing a career in Acting in Vancouver, life took a massive turn when Sarah became pregnant with her first son. Her spirit called her- rather forced- her into nature. Upon submersion into solitude and the quiet country life she discovered her authentic writing voice and began creating the podcast series ‘Live Awake’ (August 2015-current). Her teachings and meditations have been requested for use in prisons in the United States as well as recovery and wellness programs, and have been translated into several different languages. She has since given birth to her second son and attributes much of her creativity and insights to becoming and being mother.

“I had to make this record, for me,” says Deb Talan, best known as the girl from the folk pop duo The Weepies. “Marriage, children, being in a band – if you do any of that, at some point you start to wonder what part is still you. And then I got cancer, with a brutal treatment and surgery, and then full recovery. And as lucky as I am with all of that, I just felt lost. This project has been a way to reclaim a part of myself.”
The 13 gorgeous songs that make up Deb Talan’s new record LUCKY GIRL, released this year on Nettwerk Records, are an exploration featuring Deb’s pop sensibility, her signature confessional writing, and of course her unmistakable voice.
