Matt Johnson (born November 6, 1970) is an American drummer who played in the band of Jeff Buckley, appearing and co-writing one song on his album Grace[1] in 1994, as well as on subsequent live releases and EPs. Although he stopped playing with Buckley before recording began on what was to become the singer's final original album (released posthumously as Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk), Johnson shares writing credits for one of its tracks.

Johnson has released two solo albums: Cagefighter and Law of the Land.

He has also played with the Australian singer-songwriter duo Angus & Julia Stone.
