Earnest Pugh's tenth and latest album The Outpour Experience is now available. The fourteen-track album was produced by Keith Williams, Michael Bereal and Marque Walker. This could be Pugh's final album.
"I think 'Outpour' will be my last full album," Pugh says. "In the future, I think I'll concentrate on singles and tracks because that's where the industry is right now. In addition, I want to broaden my horizons beyond merely singing. I want to expand my philanthropic endeavors to do more charity because the needs are so great right now. I also want to finally finish my doctorate in theology at the Dallas Theological Seminary so that I can become a professor at a university. It's also my aim to begin to get film and television placements for my music."
The film and television placements have already begun. Under the guidance of Pugh's manager, Vanzil Burke (of Burke Management), he's already bagged a couple of big looks. His 2009 recording "Praise Break 'The Sundoe'" has been featured in CBS' "The Neighborhood" sitcom which stars Cedric the Entertainer. His 2017 hit "Trade It All" was recently featured in the BETHer movie premiere of director Coke Daniel's film, "His, Hers and The Truth," which stars Brad James and Ashley A. Williams.
The new album opens with the ballad "Your Glory" which begins as a Jazzy conversation with God and morphs into a majestic worship anthem that shows off Pugh's 5-octave range on the climax. However, it's not all balladry. There are up-tempo singalong tracks such as "Thank You So Much," "The Grace Dance," "Grateful," and the Go-Go rhythm, "Awesome God." It closes with the current, soul-stirring Top ten single, "God Wants to Heal You."
Earnest Pugh, has reunited with Blacksmoke Music Worldwide CEO, Kerry Douglas, on the soul-stirring Billboard Top Ten Gospel Airplay chart radio smash, "God Wants to Heal You." Over a decade ago, they created a string of hits together such as "For My Good," "Every Promise" and the No. 1 smashes "Rain on Us" and "I Need Your Glory." Pugh's five-octave vocal range and Douglas' guerilla marketing tactics made them an unbeatable team.
