For the longest time I thought that Dave Matthews was from Washington State because he plays at the Gorge so much. I have seen him several times there and that is before I moved to Washington. He sound is kinda of like Seattle music but with some difference's.   Dave Matthews is from South Africa and resides in Virgina and has one of the most amazing sounds and unique in the world. He mellowness about him but his excitement as well calms me and keeps me in a good mood when I need it.  As does his song 'Crash Into Me'. Positive full of life yet relaxing all at the same time.
