Scott Stapp is a Grammy-winning songwriter, solo artist, and frontman for Creed, one of the biggest rock bands in recent history, with over 50 million albums sold worldwide.
As a solo artist, he released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013). In July 2019, after five years of sobriety, Scott’s commitment to recovery, health, and family led to his best album yet. The Space Between The Shadows debuted in the Top Five and Top Ten on rock and album charts in the US and UK. The album “operates as a reflection on Stapp’s trip through hell and subsequent salvation,” stated Billboard Magazine and it reflects the technicolor clarity of self-awareness as he roars, rages, and copes with personal and universal injustice. The album’s first two singles, “Purpose For Pain,” and “Name,” share the silver lining of survival, returning Stapp to the radio charts once again.
“Scott Stapp is one of rock’s all-time great vocalists, an extraordinary songwriter, and performer, both with Creed and as a solo artist,” said Ray Waddell, president of OVG Media & Conferences, who invited Scott to speak about his return to music this February at Pollstar Live!, the world’s largest gathering of live entertainment professionals and the flagship event for Pollstar magazine.
“Over the course of a fascinating life and career, Scott has learned many lessons and we look forward to him sharing his perspective on life, the music business, and reprioritizing what matters most.”
Scott Stapp is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.
