2005年12月，The Weepies在此厂牌录制完成全新专辑“Say I Am You”，并于2006年3月正式发行。《Say I Am You》是The Weepies的第二张专辑，也是让他们被主流音乐市场接受的专辑。专辑在2006年2月曾经在8个国家的“iTunes下载次数最多的Folk专辑榜”上攀升到首位，而单曲"World Spins Madly On"也在美国的iTunes Folk歌曲榜上获得了冠军。在The Weepies所发行的三张专辑，这张获得的媒体评价最好。在这张专辑中，The Weepies继续了他们在首张专辑《Happiness》的精彩表现，他们简短、感伤、旋律优美的Folk-pop在《Say I Am You》里继续，而美妙的歌声、轻轻拨动的琴弦也没有消失。这张专辑的名字"Say I Am You"引自一位13世纪作家Jelaluddin Rumi的作品，这位作家以创作带有强烈信仰、热情爱意的诗歌著称，所以这张专辑的主题毫无疑问就是爱情。有些时候，爱情会隐藏起来或者丢失（比如在"World Spins Madly On"里），有时爱情也会是虚假的，但是最终一定会有一种爱情被发现被呵护。在专辑的大部分时候，The Weepies都在主持着一种对“爱情”主题的讨论，他们并没有想要让这个主题成为那些甜蜜迷人曲调的配饰。
2013年11月16日，The Weepies在脸书上发表申明，Deb Talan被诊断出乳腺癌，并接受化疗和放疗。并且他们的新专辑将命名为 《Sirens》，预计在2015年4月发行。在2015年2月，主题单曲“Sirens”首次公开，整张专辑的公开发行时间是2015年4月28日。
In 2001, Talan and Tannen were individually active as singer-songwriters but mutual fans of each other's music; Tannen played Talan's album "constantly", even singing along in harmony, while Talan in turn was captivated by and had "formed a kind of a relationship" with Tannen's music.The Weepies' first album Happiness was released at Club Passim on November 29, 2003, and though they were unsigned by a label it sold over 10,000 copies.
In 2005, The Weepies recorded a second album, Say I Am You, in the bedroom of their home in Pasadena, California; the occasional motorist can be heard passing by in the background of some of the tracks.In May 2005, after a sold out show at The Living Room in New York City, The Weepies were approached by Nettwerk Records and signed by the label later that year. The album was released digitally in December of that year and physically on March 7, 2006. By February 2006, the album hit number one the iTunes Store list of most-downloaded folk albums in eight countries, with the single "World Spins Madly On" also topping the list of most-downloaded folk songs in the United States.Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody nominated the album for the Shortlist Music Prize, awarded to the year's best album released in the United States selling fewer than 500,000 copies, though it failed to reach the ten-album shortlist.
The Weepies recorded their third album, Hideaway, in a small rental house in Topanga, California. Released in April 2008, it sold 14,000 copies in its first week and was the band's first entrance on the Billboard Top 200, charting at number 31.
The Weepies' fourth full-length album, Be My Thrill, was released in August 2010, and featured Colbie Caillat in back-up vocals on the track "I Was Made for Sunny Days." The album topped the Top 200 Billboard Charts at No. 34 and remained at No. 3 on Billboard's Top Folk albums for nine weeks.The band's subsequent supporting tour had 26 sold out shows across the United States.
After three records with Nettwerk, the band departed the label on good terms in 2011. According to their Twitter and Facebook accounts, they have been recording independently and gearing up for additional touring.
On December 16, 2013, it was announced on the band's Facebook page that Deb Talan had been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. After Talan underwent both chemotherapy and surgery, the band's Facebook page announced on June 10, 2014 that she was in remission.
