The Salmon Brothers’ journey began as a lighthearted jest, quickly evolving into a passionate musical endeavor fueled by the creative synergy between musicians Nick Weaver and Nick Meredith. One evening the long time friends coincidentally wore almost identical salmon-coloured blazers, and before the end of the night, the band Salmon Brothers was born. Not wanting a good name to go to waste, the duo were struck with a wave of inspiration, recording a plethora of music over the months that followed, performing DJ sets, and working towards the release of their debut record. 

 Now, Nick Meredith, on behalf of the duo unveils the long awaited debut single ‘Fools Can’t Tell No Lies’, ahead of the release of the posthumous album More To Love’, in a heartfelt tribute to the late Nick Weaver. A fitting introduction to the Salmon Brothers, ‘Fools Can’t Tell No Lies’ is a vibrant reflection of Nick Weaver and Nick Meredith’s dynamic relationship. With Weaver’s clever lyrics, the song blends infectious fun, irresistible danceability, and a witty perspective on life.

 Tragically, Nick Weaver passed away in 2021 due to a rare form of bowel cancer, leaving behind a void in the hearts of his friends and family, and peers across the broader music industry. Despite his untimely departure, Weaver’s creative spirit lives on through his varied catalog with Deep Sea Arcade, Tambourine Girls, and his solo works ‘Won’t Let Go’ released posthumously in 2022, once again captivating audiences with his unparalleled talent and heartfelt compositions. The album was a testament to Nick’s artistic vision and unwavering dedication to his craft, serving as a precursor to the forthcoming album, ‘More To Love’.

 Speaking on how their connection grew through music, Nick Meredith says, the more we got to know each other the more we started to share our taste in music. We spent hours chatting about 70s disco, reading articles about how their songs were made, trying to dissect the work. But it took a year or so before we actually wrote any music together.”

 Nick Weaver and Nick Meredith’s collaboration transcended the realms of music, blossoming into a deep friendship rooted in their shared love for creating art. From their whimsical beginnings, donning their matching salmon-coloured blazers, to crafting infectious melodies, the duo’s journey epitomises the transformative and healing power of music.

 “We started writing this sort of smooth rock/disco music as a bit of a joke but it accidentally became a weird pop thing that we’re very passionate about and eager to release,” Nick Weaver once shared, reflecting on the unexpected evolution of their musical venture.

 Nick Meredith continues “we had so many plans and dreams for the band and it’s ironic that we started Salmon Brothers as a joke to recover from the music industry, only for it to be the vehicle to pull us back into it. For me, this music is about sharing joy and time with a great friend. It’s about not taking things too seriously because you never know what life is going to throw at you. There are so many horrible things happening in the world and I hope Salmon Brothers can be a small ray of sunshine in someone’s life just as it was in mine.”

 The journey to releasing ‘More To Love’ has been marked by unwavering determination and collaboration, as Nick’s friends and family rallied together to honour his vision. Spearheaded by his devoted mother, Helen Wellings, producer Richard Belkner, and close friend Simon Relf, the album has been meticulously crafted to uphold Nick’s standards of excellence. Prior to Nick’s passing, ‘More To Love’ was in the final stages of completion. With every song written and recorded, the album has preserved his artistic direction and creative essence in every note and lyric.

 “It’s been a journey filled with laughter, tears, and moments of profound inspiration,” remarked Nick Meredith. “Nick Weaver’s passing left a void in our lives, but his music remains a beacon of hope and light for all who listen.”

 As Salmon Brothers release the debut single  ‘Fools Can’t Tell No Lies’, and unveil the ‘More To Love’ album for release via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records on 16th August, 2024, fans can anticipate a musical journey marked by authenticity, emotion, and a celebration of Nick Weaver’s enduring legacy.
