Daniel Merriweather

Daniel Merriweather came to my attention, back in June of 2009, when we featured him in our Weekly Jukebox.  It has felt like a long wait for his full release of Love & War, but it was certainly worth the patience.  The wait has felt very much like when I stand in front of the microwave watching my Hot Pocket cook.  Watching it cook won’t make it heat faster, but I still believe it will.  Such is the case with Daniel Merriweather.  Over the past year I have heard leaked tracks and then the initial UK release before the release in the United States.  I now find my hunger for his music fully satisfied.


Merriweather is yet another artist from Australia to recently hit the global mainstream.  He distinguishes himself by rocking an old-soul R&B vibe with a contemporary twist.  He is quickly establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the new soul movement because of his powerfully smooth vocals and hip hop inspired track arrangements.  Merriweather has become a mainstay on the UK charts and has made endless appearances in television programs across the globe.  Recent high profile appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and on the Ellen DeGeneres Show will only ensure that his tracks will hit high on the charts.

Love & War is packed full of great music.  The lead single “Change” features Wale and is one of those songs that has been stuck in my head for months now.  The new tracking single “Red” is getting a ton of play and you will understand why when you take a listen.  “Water And A Flame” features the amazing Adele and is a beautifully crafted song about lost love.  “Chainsaw” has a throwback feel and is one of the best metaphors for love that I have heard in a while.  The entire album has been cooking for a while and is now ready for you to cut into.  Enjoy!
