John Haughm (born September 14, 1975) is a metal / ambient musician from the United States. He is most famous for being the vocalist and guitarist of the band Agalloch. He has also released music as a soloist, playing ambient with noise and post-rock influences.

John Haughm grew up in Butte, Montana, and played in several different metal bands as a teenager, some of them including future Agalloch bassist Jason Walton. Eventually, Haughm and Walton moved to Portland where they met Don Anderson, guitarist of the death metal band Sculptured, and found that they had 'tremendously similar taste in music and cinema'. Haughm formed Agalloch in 1996 with Daniel Breyer and Don Anderson. He also had a brief stint in Sculptured, performing as the drummer on "Apollo Ends".

He is also an artist and graphic designer, having created the design and layout for the album Embodiment: Collapsing Under the Weight of God by a band he was previously in, Sculptured, as well as all of the releases, shirts, and promotional material for Agalloch.
