Neil Halstead (born 7 October 1970) is an English musician born in Reading, Berkshire, England. He has been hailed by AllMusic as “one of Britain's most respected songwriters", and Time Out as "one of Britain's greatest songwriters".

Halstead is a singer/guitarist and served as frontman and primary songwriter for the shoegazing band Slowdive, formed in 1989 out of his first band, the Pumpkin Fairies.. Slowdive released the albums Just for a Day (1991), Souvlaki (1993) and Pygmalion (1995).

Halstead also recorded with a side project called Zurich with members of Seefeel and Knives ov Resistance; the trio's sole album was released in 2009.

After their 1995 breakup, Slowdive morphed into the Halstead-helmed Mojave 3 and released a string of highly celebrated records that merged jangly alt-country with dusky psychedelic dream pop.
In 2006, Mojave 3 went on indefinite hiatus, prompting Halstead to embark on an acoustic-driven solo career marked by an emphasis on British folk-inspired melody and a love of surfing.

An occasional drift into more whimsical territory prompted NME to describe Halstead as "like Syd Barrett if he’d ever set foot on a surf board".

Halstead's first solo album, Sleeping on Roads, was released in 2002, followed by Oh! Mighty Engine (2008), released on friend and fellow surfer Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records label.
