Daniel MerriweatherDaniel Merriweather is primarily known from his work with celebrated New York DJ and producer Mark Ronson and for the cover of The Smiths' classic single, "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before".

Merriweather has also released two singles, "City rules" and "She's Got Me" (from Ronson's 2004 solo debut Here Comes The Fuzz), both of which have been popular at clubs in London, Paris and New York. In just a short amount of time, Merriweather has culled anticipation of his upcoming, as-yet-untitled solo album, due out on J/ Allido next year.

Allido Records was co-founded by producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse/Lily Allen) who is producing the entire debut album. Daniel Merriweather appeared not only on Mark Ronson's debut album in 2004 but also on Ronson's hugely acclaimed 2007 follow-up Version. Merriweather's soulful vocal performance on the track "Stop Me" is universally considered as the stand-out moment on the album and reached the #1 spot in the UK charts.

Merriweather has recently performed the track with Ronson at the MTV Music Awards, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live and throughout Mark's worldwide tour.
