Andrew Walter Gibson Scott (born November 15, 1967) is a Canadian musician born in Ottawa, Ontario and currently living in Toronto, Ontario. His first bands include No Damn Fears, Oreo Reversed and Blackpool from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Currently, he is a drummer with the Toronto-based band Sloan. He also plays guitar with the band, usually on songs he has written. Three of his songs, "500 Up", "People of the Sky", and "I've Gotta Try" have been released by Sloan as singles. He is married to Fiona Highet and is a father of two.

Once the holder of several provincial track and field records, he abandoned his athletic aspirations to become a visual artist. After attending the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NSCAD), he joined Chris Murphy, Jay Ferguson, and Patrick Pentland in Sloan.

He is one of "Chart Magazine"'s 20 Sexiest Canadian Musicians.

During Sloan's "Never Hear the End of It" tour in Canada in 2006, Scott wore an orange jumpsuit on stage.
