David John Matthews (born January 9, 1967) is a South African-born American singer-songwriter, musician and actor,[1] best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist for the Dave Matthews Band. Matthews was born in Johannesburg,[2][3] and moved frequently between South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States while growing up. Matthews mainly plays acoustic guitar, which he started playing at the age of nine.

Since then, he has also done various solo performances and produced other records.
