Biography

Wilson, NC, USA

Lee Fields (b. Wilson, NC, USA - as one of four children), is currently leader of Lee Fields & The Expressions, which released My World (2009).

Lee spent his adolescence singing in church & listening to , from the likes of: James Brown, The Temptations, Eddie Floyd, Otis Redding & the 60s Memphis sound. He joined a few of the South’s groups & began playing college circuits, inc’ East Carolina University, Duke University & Georgia Tech. By the late-60s, he’d begun a singing career, working with bands which would lay the foundation for funk music, inc’s Kool & The Gang, Sammy Gordon & The Hip Huggers & Little Royal.

Renowned throughout the global Funk community, Lee Fields has poured his grunts and screams over a legacy of funk and soul hits from the early seventies, including such 45 rpm classics as She’s a Lovemaker, The Bullis Coming, and The Funky Screw, not to mention his well sought after Let’s Talk It Over LP. This LP draws four digit bids from collectors worldwide. His recordings with the hard funk purists at TRUTH & SOUL, Desco, and Daptone Records in recent years has solidified his place as the King of contemporary funk music as well.

When Truth & Soul started as a record label in 2004, the first mission of label owners Jeff Silverman and Leon Michels, was to record a sweet soul record that would be modeled after the near perfect formula that bands like The Moments, The Delfonics, and The Stylistics had created. Music that was both tough as nails and sweet as honey. Music with laced with lush strings and smooth vocal harmonies layered over hard-hitting rhythms. Michels and Silverman called in a few trusty associates, which included singer Lee Fields, and recorded the single “Do You Love Me” b/w “Honey Dove”.
