Daniel Merriweather grew up in the tough Dandenong Ranges area of Melbourne, Australia. He was born on February 17, 1982 and began his violin lessons at the age of four. During his teen ages, he was distracted a lot, and ended up getting himself into trouble. Later on, he dropped out of high school and put all his focus on his singing career.

"There weren't a lot of options for me at that point," he recalled. "I'm not stupid so I could have made more options for myself I guess, but at the time it was hard because you have to make money and survive. I worked at KFC for a couple of months and it wasn't for me so in the end I thought I'll try this music lark."
