    After working with Mark Ronson and with a new album due in May I reckon he is gonna be huge.
    He seems quite understated and just lets his amazing voice and songs do all the talking.B)

    [edit] Biography


    [edit] Music

    Merriweather's first commercially released recording was a guest appearance on the track "All I Want" from Australian dance act Disco Montego's self-titled album in 2002. This was followed by a guest appearance on DJ/Producer Mark Ronson's Here Comes the Fuzz album ("She's Got Me") in 2003. His debut solo single "City Rules" (produced by Ronson and featuring raps from New York MC Saigon) followed in early 2004 with the aforementioned "She's Got Me" released as its follow-up. While neither song had any huge commercial success, both songs became favourites in Australian clubs and urban music circles; and won APRA and ARIA awards ([1][2]); with "City Rules" also getting some airplay on the major Australian commercial radio stations FOX FM (Melbourne)/2Day FM and Nova.
    In 2005 he cowrote and coproduced much of friend Phrase's debut album Talk With Force; also lending vocals to three tracks including the single "Catch Phrase".
    A 2006/7 collaboration with Ronson (a version of The Smiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before"), had huge commercial success in the UK where it was released as the lead-off single for Ronson's album "Version" (reaching #2).
    Daniel has completed what will be his first commercially released album Love and War[3]; which will be released through Marlin Records in Australia and Allido Records (distributed through J Records) in the U.S in April 2009 (according to Daniel's announcement on Mark Ronson's East Village Radio show of 31 October 2008). A guest appearance on the upcoming album by Phrase has also been confirmed[4]
    Daniel premiered his new single "Change" on The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 in December 2008 when he performed it live with Mark Ronson and his live band.[5]
    Daniel cites Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jeff Buckley and Herbie Hancock as his major influences.

    [edit] Personal life

    Daniel grew up in the Dandenong Ranges area of Melbourne and attended The Patch Primary School, Billanook College,Blackburn High School and Swinburne Senior Secondary College . His musical education began with violin lessons in classes for lower income children; after dropping out of school, he focused all his attention on music, taking vocal lessons and performing in clubs around Melbourne[6] He currently divides his time mostly between New York, and London while working on his album.[7]
