Adam Davenport (born May 27, 1984 in Harvey, Illinois) is an American actor, DJ, record producer, singer, songwriter and filmmaker. Davenport made his screen acting debut in Colombian filmmaker Esteban Uribe's Cleanse Pest, Rest. He has acted in several Off-Broadway productions, including Naked Boys Singing!, and appeared on several television shows, including the HBO series High Maintenance and the Starz series Sweetbitter.

Davenport received critical acclaim for his debut single "My Return Address Is You," which broke into the Top 40 of the Billboard Dance Club Chart, making him the first African-American artist/producer in history to eponymously chart on Billboard for EDM (electronic dance music). He was subsequently invited into the Recording Academy. In late 2018, Davenport released an EDM cover of Eric Clapton's "Change The World."
