Matthew Caws

Matthew Caws (born August 5, 1967, in New York City) is the lead singer of the band Nada Surf. His parents are Peter Caws and Mary Ann Caws. Matthew Caws'' parents, both university professors, took sabbaticals in Franceâ[][]in Paris, and in the Vaucluse in Provenceâ[][]which helped Matthew develop early skills in French. When the family returned to New York, his parents sent him to le Lycée Français de New York. There he joined The Cost of Living (in 1982 or 1983), a band formed by a teacher, Patrick Thouron, and a few students, including Daniel Lorca, Stéphane Dehais, and Fabrice Griffoulière-Frère, initiating a long friendship and a promising collaboration. The Cost of Living split up in 1990, after having released two records, played in venues such as the CBGB, and even having a video played on MTV, but Matthew and Daniel joined another band, Because Because Because, with two other musicians. This enterprise was short-lived and they soon split up, despite the recording of a demo, unreleased to this day, for the label Stickboy, which would later release Nada Surf''s first single (7"), "The Plan/Telescope", in 1994.
