Who Is Cole Bennett?

Cole is a music video director, videographer and producer. In 2013, he launched the media company Lyrical Lemonade after becoming a music video director for local musicians in the Chicago area. Cole is a native of Illinois.

“I am in a position where I can help possibly make Chicago that next city, the next L.A., in terms of resources and hubs, and really just make people more aware of the music culture here,” he told Complex in a 2019 interview. “For some people, it’s beneficial to move out of Chicago once you’re in a position to do so, but I think that there is also something to say about trying to give back to the city.”

He’s since become a pretty notable name in the music scene, having directed music videos for Jack HarlowThe Kid Laroi, Machine Gun Kelly, Justin Bieber and more.

“I’m aware of the impact Lyrical Lemonade has, and I’m aware of the eyes that it has on it, and I’m very thankful for that,” Cole told XXL in July 2021. “But, I think there’s always so much room to grow in every area.”
