The future of Wind-up is diverse, exciting and strong.  We continue to build our strength as an artist-driven independent label with our growing roster of amazing new talent with the goal of developing career artists."

Press Release: New Scott Stapp Solo Album Coming Soon!

SCOTT STAPP RELEASES FIRST SOLO ALBUM SINCE 2005;

PROOF OF LIFE OUT NOVEMBER 5, 2013

COVER ART AND TRACK LISTING REVEALED

“Slow Suicide” At Radio OctOber 8, 2013

 NEW YORK, NY (SEPTEMBER 24, 2013) – Grammy-Award winning artist Scott Stapp releases the deeply personal Proof of Life on Wind-up Records, November 5, 2013Proof of Life was produced by Howard Benson and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge and is Stapp’s second solo album; his first was 2005’s certified platinum, The Great Divide.  On October 8, 2013 the reflective “Slow Suicide” will go to radio, be available digitally and several pre-order options will also be offered on Stapp’s website.

Proof of Life is Stapp’s first new material since the release of his 2012 uncensored memoir, Sinner’s Creed  which Stapp shared his life story for the first time—from his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise of Creed, and his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith, and the launch of his solo career.  The gripping memoir is “proof” positive for Stapp that a higher power is always present, despite the colossal messes we sometimes make of our lives.  Proof of Life is an 11-track collection of songs that chronicles the extension of his journey.

“This is the most meaningful record of my career,” says Stapp. "I’ve made a lot of messes in my life but I've learned I can take a mess and turn it into a message. This album chronicles my struggles, my journey and it’s the most honest record I have ever written.  The fans have always meant everything to me and over the years they’ve come to me and told me how through my music they’ve gotten through the worst of times and that hit me.  With this album, it’s the first time that when I listened back to the tracks, it became a cathartic experience for me.”

The new songs reflect the maturity and wisdom of an artist that has sold nearly 30 million albums with Creed, had three Grammy nominations and one win for Best Rock Song with “With Arms Wide Open,” and 11 #1 Singles with “My Own Prison,” “Torn,” “What's This Life For,” “One,” “Higher,” “What If,” “Are You Ready,” “With Arms Wide Open,” “My Sacrifice” “One Last Breath,” and “Overcome.”  Creed put out six albums - My Own Prison (1997) 6x Platinum, Human Clay (1999) 11+ million (Diamond), Weathered (2001) 6x Platinum, Greatest Hits (2004) 2x Platinum and Full Circle (2009) Certified Gold.
