Creed was formed in Tallahassee, Florida in the mid 1990’s by front man Scott Stapp and guitarist Mark Tremonti. Within a few years, Creed had written enough material to record a debut album, and the self-funded My Own Prison was released on Blue Collar Records, selling a few thousand copies mostly in the state of Florida. The album began to create a buzz, enough that it reached to larger record labels and garnered the attention of Wind-Up Records. Creed signed to the label and re-released My Own Prison, and the album rocketed to the top the charts. The album eventually went multi-platinum, six times over, earning Creed Billboard’s Rock Artist of the Year award in 1998. For the next decade, Creed became one of the industry’s most successful rock bands, still maintaining Christian undertones and themes for the most part, but with a sound that appealed to the masses. Creed racked up a number of awards during this time period, including a Grammy for Best Rock Song (for “With Arms Wide Open,” 2001) and American Music Awards for: Favorite Alternative Artist (2001 and 2003); Favorite Pop/Rock Album (for Human Clay, 2001); and Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group (2003.) To date, Creed is among the most successful rock bands of the 1990’s and 2000’s, with three multi-platinum albums and record sales exceeding fifty million. Billboard ranks Creed in the top twenty best artists of the millennium’s first decade.
