There aren’t many artists who keep their cool well into
their fifth decade in the business, but R&B veteran Lee Fields is one. With
a career spanning 43 years and having toured the world over with his
raucous-yet-tender voice, the music he’s making today is the best of his
career. He will release new album A
Faithful Man
March 13, 2012 on Brooklyn’s
Truth & Soul Records. Listen to the album version of debut single “You’re
The Kind Of Girl”:

Faithful Man is
Fields’ follow-up to the well-received 2009 album My World, and his second
album for Truth & Soul -a label reinventing the Motown-style soul factory
for a brand new era. The album interprets and then pushes the formulas of good
soul thanks to Truth & Soul producers and co-owners Jeff Silverman and Leon
Michels, as well as the high level of musicianship of everyone involved. (These
are the same individuals that co-wrote, produced and played on Aloe Blacc’s global
smash I Need A Dollar, and have provided the backdrop for records by El Michels
Affair, Adele, Liam Bailey, Ghostface Killah and Jay-Z, to name a few.)

 

Born and raised in the small town of Wilson,
North Carolina, Fields spent his teenage years
singing in church and listening to the classic sound of ’60s Memphis. By the late sixties, Lee was touring
with the bands who would lay the foundation for funk music, including Kool and
the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, and Little Royal. And back in the
1970s, Fields was nicknamed Little JB for his similarity to James Brown.
