Lee Fields & The Expressions
It’s hard to find another active entertainer today that can match the background of Lee Fields. First recording in 1969, Lee Fields has produced music with over 13 different record labels over 48 well seasoned years. He continues to work the craft, music making, touring, and recording. With such a seasoned past, it’s amazing that Lee Fields, a North Carolina native, is as busy and focused as ever. Over the years there has been a perfection and evolution of the soul sound from Lee Fields that everyone deserves to experience. The formula seems to be two-fold: sticking to his raucous-yet-tender voiced soul music yet pushing the boundaries of the R&B genre to make it all it can be. The result is an unmistakable sound, and a rare peek at a legendary, impossibly gracious singer who's proved that after all these years he continues to kick ass. His R&B approach has hints, sounds, and feelings that may be familiar but then there are textures, themes, and approaches that stretch the sound into something else, something decidedly Lee Fields.
