He is a pure soul man from the innermost to the outermost, who makes it tingle of 70s, hard-hitting rhythms and intimate ballads.
Lee Fields forms a direct link to the original soul and rhythm'n'blues music, and has cultivated the form for forty-five years. He has worked with big names like BB King, Clearence Carter, Betty Wright and Bobby Bland to name a few.
In the 1970s, Lee Fields released a series of hard-hitting singles - currently sought after collectibles, and inspired music fans looking for real grooves and hooked rhythms.
He is sampled by a number of hip hop artists, and is considered the leading figure in the "deep funk".
In the 2000s, Lee Fields has so far released four albums, all of which have aroused great enthusiasm by both reviewers and fans. The big breakthrough came with "My World" in 2008, which Pitchfork called "one smoking mother of an old-sound soul record". Allmusic.com has called Fields “one of the most compelling soul singers at work today”.
