Creed Bio

Creed was an American hard rock/post-grunge band from Tallahassee, Florida that became popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The band won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for the song "With Arms Wide Open" in 2001. The band broke up in 2004 after three multi-platinum albums, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Creed formed after Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti, friends at Florida State University, decided to form a band, recruiting Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips to complete the quartet in late 1995. Under the name "Naked Toddler" (the name "Creed" was eventually suggested by Marshall), the band was soon dominating the Tallahassee local music scene, and was one of the few local bands playing all original music in a town where club owners wanted local bands to play cover songs. The four members had already written and collaborated three of the songs that would go on to become tracks on their chart-topping debut album My Own Prison. The songs were "One", "Sister" and "What's This Life For".

They then found work at a bar, where they impressed promoters Jeff Hanson and Andy Levine enough to let them play at one of their bigger venues known as Floyd's Music Store on the Tennessee Street Strip in Tallahassee. Hanson and Levine liked the band so much that he convinced producer John Kurzweg to record the band.
