Happy birthday to the beloved Dave Matthews! Ever since he started the Dave Matthews Band in 1991, the singer/songwriter has successfully navigated the waters of mainstream pop, soulful rock, and exploratory jamming with their one-of-a-kind sound.

Born on January 9th, 1967 in Johannesburg, South Africa, Matthews formed the DMB in 1991 and has been riding the waves of his self-made success ever since. Through hit songs and exciting live shows, Dave Matthews has truly captured our imaginations as a top-tier performer.
