Biography

You may already be familiar with the powerhouse pipes of Daniel Merriweather, the 27-year-old Australian who lends his old-soul voice to “Stop Me” — an ingenious mash-up of The Smiths’“Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before” and The Supremes’ “You Keep Me Hangin’On” that appears on DJ/producer Mark Ronson’s ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

U.S. pressing of the debut albumm from the Australian singer/songwriter. Already an enormous hit in the UK, Love & War, debuted at #2 on the British album chart and the album's first single, 'Red', was #2 most-played song in the UK and features stellar guitar work from Sean Lennon and Harper Simon (Paul's son). Though Merriweather may be best known in the U.S. as the remarkably soulful voice behind 'Stop Me' (a standout track from DJ/producer Mark Ronson's album Version), the 27-year-old Melbourne native firmly establishes himself as a solo artist in his own right on Love & War, which pulses with '60s Soul keyboards and horns, warm textures of acoustic and electric guitar, and cinematic string arrangements, all anchored by Merriweather's combustible vocals.

Review

'Red' is richly constructed pop drenched in keening romantic regret. ...a soulful voice of the Otis Redding/Al Green/Marvin Gaye variety and lushly arranged songs that channel an array of influences from early Elton John ("For Your Money") to vintage Holland-Dozier-Holland ("Impossible"). -- Billboard February 27,2010

Does the world really need another twentysomething blue-eyed-soul upstart? If it's Daniel Merriweather, then the answer is yes, please. The solid pop hooks and gritty-sweet, unabashedly nostalgic arrangements on the Aussie singer/songwriter's debut rival any R&B-flavored imports of recent years. And Merriweather's precociously grainy vocals make Justin Timberlake sound like, well, a boy-band alum. - 3½ stars -- USA Today,February 23,2010

The retro-soulful singer gets his much deserved close-up on the year's best debut... Love & War feels like the male answer to Back to Black. 3½ stars- "Critic's Choice" -- People, March 1, 2010

There was no doubt that a new star was born... Merriweather wowed a packed house at the Troubadour, where such legends as Elton John broke in the U.S. And if the strength of Merriweather's debut disc, Love & War -- long on stylistic ambition and old-school instrumentation -- is any indication, Merriweather's West Coast maiden voyage could achieve similar historic significance. -- Daily Variety January 21, 2010

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing voice! Exceptional talent! March 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love Daniel Merriweather! Listening to his voice is addictive, and I can't stop listening to this CD! He has a voice comparable to Stevie Wonder, and that says a lot! He deserves more praise and attention for his amazing voice! My favorite songs are "Giving Everything Away for Free", "Red", "Water and a Flame" featuring another amazing vocalist, Adele. Everyone should buy this album! You won't be able to stop listening to it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb; A 'Tour de Force' March 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
One might argue that to some extent, the traditional R&B album is a thing of the past. Only few exceptions to this have occurred in recent times that have evoked both commercial and critical success. The most notable of 2008 was Anthony Hamilton's exceptional The Point Of It All; in 2009, it was Maxwell's Grammy-award winning BLACKsummers'night. In 2010, it seems as if true, more traditionally conceived R&B albums are the trend, with chart-topping, critically praised efforts from Sade and Jaheim, who in particular has refined his 'ghetto-R&B' into more adult leaning territory. Daniel Merriweather's U.S. debut Love & War is yet another traditional R&B and one of 2010's very best albums, period. Sure, we're early into the year, but Merriweather's album will certainly be remembered by fans and critics by the year's end. Merriweather, indigenous to Australia, brings his A-game on this retro-/neo- soul masterpiece. Sure, there are some infusions of soft-rock/pop, but predominately, this is an outright, soul album. Sad to say, so many of the U.S. R&B artists are more concerned with the infusion of hip-hop into the R&B, often times convoluting it into the 'same song'. That isn't to say that retro-soul artists sometimes dabble to much in the past, but there is something to be learned from the past that delivered classic hits and a signature sound. Amy Winehouse certainly knows with the 5 Grammys she received for her vintage soul/traditional pop effort Back to Black. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars More Blue-eyed Soul! June 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Looking for some retro Soul Motown/Philly style? Look no further than Daniel Merriweather's solo debut "Love & War".

Produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs), there are horns, organs, and harmonies a plenty. Daniel was the vocalist on Ronson's 2007 hit "Stop me", and if you liked that, there's more where that came from.

Opening cut "Impossible" is a horn drenched soulful number that sounds like some lost Motown classic. "Could you" is a beautiful sunny song that cleverly nicks its chorus from The Mamas and The Papas "California dreaming" to very good effect. My favourite!

Lead-off single "Change" is a groovy upbeat Hip Hop tinged song with a rap from Wale and lyrics taking a look at the state of the world. "Not giving up" is a bouncy Motown-style number, while the bonus track "You don't know what love is" is funky.

For ballads, we have the piano driven "For your money", the absolutely incredible "Water and a flame", a Jazzy duet with a very Amy Winehouse-sounding Adele (and my other favourite). Others are the acoustic "Red", the soulful "Live by night", the Gospel-tinged "All of the people" with wonderfully layered harmonies ("Invade them then cheat them, talk about freedom, and that's how the West was won" go the lyrics in part), and the beautifuly wistful "Giving everything away for free".

Daniel is definitely one to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why only 5 stars? March 7, 2010
By Tadpole
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cuz Amazon only goes up to 5! This guy sounds like Marvin Gaye meets Teddy Pendergrass - for real. And the songs - this kid has songwriting chops that match his pipes. Absolutely top-notch 60's soul with a touch of Beatles and The Band thrown in for good measure. Fresh, amazing, and so far, unspoken. Call me an instant fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! August 6, 2010
By C. Hill
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm totally late on this guy. I happened to download his CD today and was instantly blown away. I know when a CD is good or not within the first listen and this CD grades at an A+. When I heard the first song " For Your Money", I knew he was quite special. Daniel's voice is so soulful and he did a good job of selecting the right song writers (he is one himself) and producers. The album was put together very well. I pretty much like 12 out of the 13 songs, which is excellent. My favorites are:

Getting Out
Water and A Flame
Red
Live by Night
Could You

Please buy this one and share with your family and friends. It's such a good listen. Such a good listen!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised November 29, 2012

I bought this because of the song from "The Ugly Truth" but I love the entire CD. I'm a "senior citizen" so it may be rare for one my age to enjoy this but this kid's very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with this album! December 9, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Daniel Merriweather would have had my vote for Best New Artist at the Grammys for this outstanding debut album. He's got a gorgeous, smooth voice and he puts real emotion into what he sings, and if you see him live, as I have, you'll see that he is indeed the real deal. Every song on this album is worth the price of the album, including "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "I Think I'm In Love," which are not on the original version of the album (when I bought the album at the time of its release, the acoustic version of The Smiths' "Stop Me" was not included). I personally find "Giving Everything Away for Free" to be the weakest track, but it's still good. My favorite songs on the album are "Cigarettes" and "Chainsaw," but it really is hard to pick just a couple from such a crop of fantastic songs. This is my favorite album of the year!
