Mysterious, eccentric, good-hearted, and downright talented are all words that have been used to describe actor and musician Creed Bratton over the years. Creed may be best known for starring as a fictional version of himself on nine seasons of the award winning, critically acclaimed NBC series The Office. The series garnered 186 award nominations with 47 wins including the 2008 SAG award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. For nearly eight years fans worldwide grew to love him as Dunder Mifflin’s quality assurance director who unapologetically forgets the names of his own co-workers, and says bizarre confusing statements on a regular basis. If Creed was onscreen, laughs were sure to follow. While Creed may be best known for his on-screen antics, he is also an established musician with a career in music that spans nearly five decades, and he isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This year, Creed is slated to release his 9th full-length album entitled Slightly Altered, featuring 10 brand new tracks. The album, produced by Dave Way (Sheryl Crow, Fiona Apple) and Dillon O’Brian, is available wherever digital downloads are sold. Read More >
Born in Los Angeles, Creed grew up in Coarsegold, California, a small town near Yosemite National Park. As a child, he was surrounded by the arts; his grandparents, mother, and father were all musicians. Creed began playing guitar professionally as a teenager, making pocket change performing while attending Sacramento State College and College of the Sequoias where he studied theater. He went on to become member of the legendary American rock group The Grass Roots, playing lead guitar with the group on their first four albums – three of which charted and sold millions of records across the globe. Creed parted ways with the band in 1970, but continued his passion for music and acting, playing music all over Los Angeles. Creed has released a handful of solo albums over the years, including: Chasin the Ball, The 80’s, Coarsegold, Creed Bratton, Tell Me About It, Bounce Back and While The Young Punks Dance.
Additional television credits for Creed include: Hulu’s Into the Dark, Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, TNT’s Franklin & Bash, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time with Finn & Jake, Amazon’s Upload, and Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Comedy Bang! Bang! Film credits include: Universal Pictures’ Mask, Gravitas Ventures’ Band of Robbers, Focus Features’ The Sister Brothers, and ATO Pictures’ Terri.
While acting, recording music, and touring keeps Creed busy, when he has downtime you can find him reading, swimming, hiking, doing yoga, traveling and fishing for the elusive trout. Creed is also a supporter of friend Rainn Wilsons charity Lidè, an educational initiative that uses arts and literacy to build resiliency and empower at risk adolescent girls in rural Haiti. He is also involved with the Alzheimer’s Association.
