”Andy Benz sounds like Arvo Pärt on acid”. Frankfurter Allgemeine
“Once, Denmark had one of the world's best bass players, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen. And now DK has another one. His name is Andy Benz and on his debut cd, Andy paints beautiful melodious dreams worthy of both Oldfield and Vangelis. Henning Høeg - BT
According to himself his main influences are the merging of modern effects, computers and classical double bass.
With the release in 2009 of his live-looping solo album "Flowing in Circles" he made a powerful musical statement.
Using only the bass and a loop-machine, he mixed elements of electronic music, with his sublime instrumental knowledge, into his own style.
With live-looping and effects, he found a way to dig even deeper into the double bass role as a solo instrument in electronic and instrumental music.
This album earned him a lot of recognition and he started working with international sponsors like Yamaha, as a Silent bass artist, and D´Addario Orchestral Strings family.
In february 2016 he released the self-produced 2nd Andy Benz album titled ”Disciples”.
All samples on this album are from the electric upright bass that he is using as a Yamaha artist.
