Iain Matthews (born Ian Matthews MacDonald, 16 June 1946) is an English musician and singer-songwriter. He was an original member of the British folk rock band Fairport Convention from 1967 to 1969 before leaving and forming his own band, Matthews Southern Comfort, which had a UK number one in 1970 with a cover version of Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock".

With ex-Monkee Michael Nesmith at the helm and an array of C&W sidemen on hand, Ian Matthews recorded what is probably his most overtly country album to date, 1973's Valley Hi. The record opens with a pair of tracks - his own "Keep on Sailing" and the traditional "Old Man at the Mill" - that had been scheduled to appear on the second release by his former band Plainsong, which Elektra chose to shelve.

Ian Matthews – Valley Hi. Matthews signed to Elektra as part of Plainsong. When their second album was rejected, he was offered a solo deal and placed with y-mogul Mike Nesmith to produce songs by Richard Thompson, Jackson Browne and other notables. A pleasant country-rock collection resulted, but Matthews’ voice seems underwhelmed by and unsuited to the sound.

Ian Matthews, ‘Valley Hi’. On this record, Ian Matthews, veteran of legendary British folk group Fairport Convention, teamed up with producer Michael Nesmith of the Monkees. The appealing result gave Matthews' folk repertoire a high-gloss sonic sheen, but like most of Matthews' work, it was not a hit. He kept recording and also did A&R for the new age label Windham Hill. The arrangement of the song "Seven Bridges Road" here caught the attention of the Eagles, who used it as a frequent concert opener and a hit single.

Ian Matthews is an English musician, best known as a drummer for Kasabian. Prior to Kasabian he played with a number of local Bristol bands, such as K'Passa, Ilya and Milk. He met Kasabian when they were recording their first single "Processed Beats" in Bristol.
