Dave Hamelin (born October 3, 1980) is a Canadian musician and songwriter, known for his work with indie rock band the Stills. Originally the band's drummer, Hamelin moved to guitar and co-lead vocalist in 2005 when guitarist Greg Paquet left the band.

In 2009, Hamelin formed the band Eight and a Half with Stills' keyboardist Liam O'Neil and Broken Social Scene drummer Justin Peroff. They released their self-titled debut in 2012.
