Stevie Creed is a Scottish recording artist, actor and writer best known to audiences as The Brooklyn Scotsman. Named after the legendary Stevie Wonder, he cites the American legend as one of his main influences. Born on April 30th, 1991, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Stevie Creed entered the world three weeks early and it was clear from the beginning he was always in a rush to get places. At the age of 12, he formed the hip hop group Loose Endz with his best friends and began working on his lyrical craft. In 2010, Stevie travelled from Scotland to East New York. In one of the most notorious Brooklyn neighbourhoods in New York City, he soon began establishing himself.
In 2014 he headlined his first show at The Pyramid Club in Manhattan and had his dance single Ballerina played on major Clear Channel radio stations all over America. In April 2015 Stevie released his debut album, The Brooklyn Scotsman. An obsessive boxing enthusiast who used to compete in the ring, Stevie has trained at gyms all over the world. He has also walked runways at New York Fashion Week and has modelled for various designers. On November 19th, 2015, Stevie headlined a homecoming show at The Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh. After a great response he returned to headline the Liquid Rooms again in April 2016.
That summer he travelled back to New York and headlined his own show at The Paper Box in Brooklyn. The following year in June 2017 Stevie had another sold out show at The Voodoo Rooms back home in Edinburgh and, after dabbling in various small acting roles, he decided to take on one of the biggest challenges of his career. In August 2018 he performed 24 shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in his own biographical hip hop musical, also called The Brooklyn Scotsman, which he also wrote. Reviewers were unanimous in their praise for this performance. That August Stevie also released his much anticipated EP, In Creed We Trust. In August 2019 Stevie completed his second full run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his theatre show and was filmed for a BBC documentary based on his life which follows him back to New York City to record an album/ music video and put on a show for the Brooklyn community. In June 2020 BBC Scotland broadcast Stevie’s documentary, The Brooklyn Scotsman. Stevie is currently preparing for the release of his most anticipated album to date, Concreed Jungle. He has also just completed writing a book called The Brooklyn Scotsman and is planning to tour his stage play to the US in 2021.
