Since the late sixties Lee Fields has amassed a prolific catalog and has played and toured with such legends as Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, O.V Wright, and many more. With a career spanning 43 years, itâ€™s mind-blowing that the music heâ€™s making today with Brooklynâ€™s Truth & Soul Records is the best of his career.
While drawing comparisons to The Moments, The Delfonics, The Stylistics, andâ€”of courseâ€”James Brown, Faithful Man is able to create a space of itâ€™s
own due to the groupâ€™s desire to interpret and further the formulas of good soul music rather then imitate them. Chalk that up to Truth & Soul producers and co-owners Jeff Silverman and Leon Michels. These are the same individuals that co-wrote, produced, and played on Aloe Blaccâ€™s global smash I Need A Dollar, and have provided the back drop for records by Adele, GhostfaceKillah, and Jay-Z to name a few.
â€œThe older Fields becomes, the closer he gets to perfecting the sound of soulâ€ said DJ Oliver Wang about Fields in an NPR feature. Faithful Man is the next step towards perfection. A step that will find Lee Fields & The Expressions finally being bestowed the contemporary soul music crown.
