John Braham, né à Londres en 1774 et décédé à Londres le 17 février 1856, est un chanteur d’opéra britannique.

Il noue une relation de trente ans avec Nancy Storace, à la ville et sur scène. Ils se sépareront en 1816 et Braham épousera Elisabeth Bolton.

C’est un ténor qui maîtrise si parfaitement le falsetto, que l’on ne percevait pas le point de passage. Il composera également quelques ballades et chansons dont la plus célèbre est The death of Nelson.
