Stellar Award nominated balladeer, Earnest Pugh, is kicking off the New Year with a new label, new music, a new home in Houston, Texas and new business relationships. The five-octave belter has built a new recording home for his solo CDs. The label is named P-Man Music and it sees the dynamic vocalist partnering with Central South Distribution Company’s Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Vicki Mack-Lataillade, who birthed gold and platinum-selling acts such as Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr and Trin-i-tee 5:7 through her former label, Gospocentric, in the 1990s.
“I have wanted to work with Chuck Adams – Central South’s founder – and Vicki Mack–Lataillade – since the 1990’s,” Pugh says. “No one markets like Vicki Mack! She is in a category all by herself and I am very optimistic about my future with CSD.” P-Man Music has scheduled a May 3, 2013 live CD/DVD recording for Pugh in Nassau, Bahamas. Grammy Award winner Cedric Thompson is producing the set that will feature collaborations with LeJeune Thompson, Chrystal Rucker, Keith Williams and Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis. It’s tentatively scheduled for a July 2013 release.
“We at Central South are elated that we will be working with Earnest Pugh and P-Man Music,” says Mack-Lataillade. “Earnest Pugh is a constant hit maker with a voice that is pure gold! I believe that Earnest Pugh has just scratched the surface of success with his gift and we are here at Central South to take him all the way and make him an even stronger brand in the entertainment industry as a whole.”
