Biography

Tallahassee, Florida (1994 – 2004, 2009 – present)

Creed is an American band, from Tallahassee, Florida, that became commercially successful during the late ’90s.

Creed formed in 1994 with their debut album, My Own Prison. After hearing them play live, Diana Meltzer of Wind-Up Records decided to sign the band to her label. After making it more radio friendly, the album was re-released by Wind-Up across the country and became a success, reaching the Top 40 of the Billboard 200. My Own Prison is, as of now, 6-times platinum.

Creed’s mainstream success came a few years later, throughout 1999 and 2000 with their second album, Human Clay. The album was a massive success, thanks to the single Higher, and later, the single With Arms Wide Open. Human Clay remains their most commercially successful album at 11-times platinum.

Creed’s third album, Weathered, was released in 2001. It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and stayed there for 8 weeks, a record Creed shares with The Beatles. Its success was propelled by the singles My Sacrifice and One Last Breath. Weathered is, as of present, 6-times platinum.

On June 4, 2004, it was announced that Creed had broken up. Scott Stapp has recorded a solo album, The Great Divide, collaborating with Roadrunner Records recording artist Goneblind, while the other band members Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and former bassist Brian Marshall formed a new band, Alter Bridge, with vocalist Myles Kennedy of the Mayfield Four.
