Music Spotlight: Daniel Merriweather

while australia may yield beauty in many forms there are few things that can compete with beaches & wildlife, but then i found this gent. i felt compelled to finally make use of my Shazam phone application when i heard Daniel Merriweather playing in a store last year. i feel like he should be one of the more well known names in our part of the world, but i do tend to favor the smooth tastes of soul, rhythm/blues, & anything laced with old school class. in addition to releasing the Love & War album in June of 2009, Merriweather has also collaborated with a slew of respected artists. preview his debut album and his videos below. (the first features Wale & the second being a remix of the classic "Stop Me" with Mark Ronson). sounds to me like it might be the right time to save the world & start making some babies. -Lethal
