Grammy winning songwriter, platinum-selling solo artist, and Creed frontman, Scott Stapp has followed “Purpose For Pain” with “Name” at rock radio. Both will be featured during his six-song summer concert performance live on Friday’s Fox & Friends (8/23).
“Name” speaks about breaking harmful cycles by overcoming, and ending, abuse and abandonment. It has resonated with audiences on The Space Between The Shadows Summer Tour (now extended into October) and at radio appearances where each performance has been met with pin-drop silence and standing ovations for lyrics like:
“I am a son without a father. He gave his name and walked away.
I am a man, now a father. And I swear my son will never know that pain.
I was a child, I was abandoned. Too young to fight to have a say.
Oh God what seemed so heavy handed. Made me the man I am today.
It’s so hard to forgive. Even harder to forget.”
“Name” also gives the album its title, as Stapp vows to make his hard-learned lessons count:
“I will…I will… be the space between the shadows.
I will…I will… be the light inside the sorrow.”
The Space Between The Shadows reflects the technicolor clarity of five years of sobriety, self-awareness, and an ongoing commitment to connecting with others. Previous solo albums include the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013).
