Andy Bennett is a singer songwriter best known for his work with Ocean Colour Scene. 


Bennett had his first break with his band The Elements (formerly known as Sargent) which included Tim Jacques, Lee Burn and Dave Casswell. The Elements regularly gigged throughout Birmingham and supported Ocean Colour Scene.

He is truly a versatile artist who has also worked/performed with the likes of Andy Fairweather-Low, Paul Weller, PP Arnold, Bev Bevan, Roy Wood, Liam Gallagher, Dodgy, Toploader, Brian McFadden at venues such as NEC arena, Wembley arena, Glasgow SECC hydro and Royal Albert Hall.

Andy has toured with Ocean Colour Scene since 2004 but left in February 2015 to focus on his solo material.

In October 2015, Andy Bennett released his solo debut single Hole in the Road, followed in May 2016 by the single Drift Away.

In November 2016, Bennett released his first album, thinkin’, drinkin’, singin’ , featuring a back catalogue of songs which he has been working on over time (including the songs previously released as singles and also a new version of the song “Old Pair of Jeans”).His album was met with positive response, garnering a four stars out of five review from PlanetMosh, as well as a 5 stars rating from Flick of the Finger. The publication cited the track ‘Fool No More’ as ‘the quintessential track on an album that is full of gems.

Currently touring the UK as special guest on Stand Up & Rock which is a very Brummie affair featuring Jasper Carrott and original ELO and The Move drummer Bev Bevan, Andy will be embarking on a few not to be missed solo shows later in 2022.
