* STAR OF “THE OFFICE” (US) *
ANNOUNCES UK SHOWS THIS SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER
CREED BRATTON – Actor, musician and star of The Office (US) will be touring the UK this Autumn. He plays in Brighton at Concorde 2 on 27 September.
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.” 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 on-screen, 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. Creed released his 7th full-length album entitled “While the Young Punks Dance,” featuring 10 brand new tracks. The album, produced by Dave Way (Sheryl Crow, Fiona Apple) and Dillon O’Brian, will be available wherever digital downloads are sold on April 6, 2018.
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,” and “Bounce Back.”
Check out his recording session for Fruit Of The Loom briefs! Superb!
We brought in @CreedBratton to write a jingle for @FruitoftheLoom's Breathable Boxer Briefs. He underdelivered. Now the brand is asking America to share a better version on Instagram and giving away Creed's fee to the best. More on @Adweek: https://t.co/gl64m8MpbL pic.twitter.com/7JM5gMwHNL

While acting, recording music, and touring keeps Creed busy, when he has downtime you can find him reading, swimming, hiking, doing yoga, travelling and fishing for the elusive trout. Creed is an active supporter of the charity FirstBook, which has distributed more than 170 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families in more than 30 countries. Creed is also a supporter of Lidè, an educational initiative that uses arts and literacy to build resiliency and empower at risk adolescent girls in rural Haiti. Creed is also involved with the Alzheimer’s Association.
Looking forward to this. Should be an amazing evening out in Brighton.
