Martin Chavez Dosh (born September 6, 1972), better known mononymously as Dosh, is a multi-instrumentalist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Dosh is principally a percussionist who usually adds a Rhodes piano to his kit and uses other electronic devices such as samplers and looping pedals. He has been characterized as experimental/electronica due to his use of signal-altering devices in performance to allow him to create live solo performances using keyboards, tuned percussion, and drums. Dosh often collaborates with other musicians in both live performances in recordings, both as leader and in support.

Dosh is also known for the incorporation of his family life into his work. Naoise EP is named after his son. "Happy Song for Tadgh" from the EP is a reference to Naoise's half-brother, Tadgh. He is also known for writing the song "I Think I'm Getting Married" for his future wife at the time.
