Scott Stapp of CREED
Scott Stapps artistic and personal journey have encompassed all the talent and torment imaginable in scaling to musical success. The founding member of Creed chronicled his questions, his quest for answers, and his dreams from faith to fatherhood in chart topping hits, My Own Prison, Higher, and With Arms Wide Open, which dominated the sonic landscape of the 90s-2000s. His soul-piercing lyrics backed by thundering rock riffs garnered a Grammy award, and countless other accolades of creativity and chart domination, not to mention legions of fans, who felt a kindred spirit in his honesty.
Creed toured extensively through its reign atop rock music, but for Scott, the musical machinery to keep the show going meant some terrible personal cost, as he sunk into depths of depression, prompting self-medication that turned to addictive behaviors. His creativity, passion, and desire to be transparent in his struggle never waned, and were evident on his debut solo album, The Great Divide (2005), the Full Circle album from a rebirthed Creed in 2009, several tours, his starkly revealing memoir, Sinners Creed (2012), and his highly-acclaimed second solo album, Proof of Life, in 2013, which brought Scotts first number one song on the Christian charts.
With the love and support of his family, Scott has continued to live a balanced, healthy and sober lifestyle, grounded in faith. He has a fresh purpose in performing, writing, and singing, to bring hope to even one person who is amidst the kind of struggle he knows. Hope has always been a theme of his music, and now, that level of hope takes on a whole new dimension.
In gratitude for the many interventions made in his behalf, Scott devotes himself to paying it forward to others in need through numerous outreaches. He created the With Arms Wide Open Foundation in 2000 to help underprivileged children and families around the world. The foundation has donated over $1 million to various causes. He is also involved with CHARM (Children are Magical) which his wife founded to heighten the awareness of childrens issues and provide underprivileged youth with the tools to enrich their lives.
Scott performed across the country in 2016 ending a successful solo tour with an international tour with his first-ever stops in South Africa this past December. In addition to his thriving solo career, Scott is also the lead singer of the new super group Art of Anarchy whos first album with Scott The Madness is due out March 24th. Scott will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Creeds My Own Prison with his Live and Unplugged tour in May and June of this year.
Currently Scott resides in Brentwood, TN with his wife, Jaclyn, and their children where he is writing new songs and balancing touring with Art of Anarchy and his solo band.
