Pugh got his start in the gospel music industry singing with the groundbreaking group,
O'landa Draper and the Associates. Since then, he's made appearances on BET's Bobby Jones
Gospel, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and at the Bobby Jones Gospel Industry Retreat.
He's also toured the country with various gospel stage plays such as "Love The One You're
With", "Real Men Pray" and "Crazy Love". Throughout his career, he's been blessed to work
with some of the genre's most popular artists including Byron Cage, Marvin Sapp, Richard
Smallwood, Kirk Franklin, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and BeBe Winans. Now stepping out on his
own, Pugh is poised to take the industry by storm with his Crystal Rose Records/EPM Music
Group debut, A Worshipper's Perspective.
Recorded live at Ebenezer AME Church, the 12-track CD features the minister,
psalmist and actor on songs like the amazing opener, "Holy Spirit", penned by Brent Jones,
and the mesmerizing and unforgettable Thomas Whitfield classic "Wrapped Up, Tied Up,
Tangled Up", songs that pull the true worshipper immediately into the presence of God.
"Just For Who You Are" finds the listener concentrating on the simple awesomeness of God while
"Father I Worship You" brings the lover of God to their knees.
Earnest Pugh writes seven of the album's cuts including the hand-clapper,
"He's There", a duet with Nikki Ross. Flowing seamlessly from contemporary to traditional,
Pugh provides another rousing track on the old-time churchy tune, "So Much".
Songwriting collaboration between Cage and Pugh, the track necessitates dancing in the
aisles. Praisers will love the foot-stomping, fast-paced "High & Lifted" and the uplifting,
choir-backed "Everybody Praise Em". Theater sensation D'Atra Hicks teams up with Earnest to
shake the house on "Call Him".
