Raymond Lee Pusey
Born and raised as a preacher’s kid, I was saved at age 10. My father was the most inspirational man in my life. He truly was the greatest example of what a Godly man is. I was moved, inspired, and rededicated my life at a Creation Festival back in 1991 which is when I got involved in Christian Music. Since then I felt God’s calling to share what’s on my heart through music… and share it with anyone and everyone who will listen. The first Christian band I was a part of was called “Valiant” back in 1991. It was composed of some great friends and really first educated me on music, performance and was the beginning of my journey. It lasted only 1 year, but was a great experience for me.
In 1999 I started “Sum of One” and that band had a great 11 year run!! Over those 11 years we played over 300 shows, played and witnessed to thousands of people, and had the opportunity to open for artists such as the David Crowder Band, Building 429 and Superchik. I credit my friends Ryan, Terra, John, Ryan Ca, and Don Zabitka who was our producer with helping me become a stronger musician. In 2011 I started the “Raymond Lee Band” with some wonderful friends I led worship with. Jeff, J.R. and Don are not only my brothers in Christ, but best friends and we love making music together. I currently help lead worship at Liberty Baptist Church and aspire to keep singing the praises of God for many years to come. I have a loving wife named Tami, a son named Derek and a beautiful girl named Peyton which are my pride and joy. When asked what my purpose is with the “Raymond Lee Band” I’ll usually respond with…“to love God, love others, and spread the word”.
