Lee Fields started his career about 50 years ago, but his husky and at the same time tender James Brown-like voice is still a staple in the world of soul and funk.

50 years and counting

Few soul artists can say they have continuously released singles and albums since the late 1960s, but Lee Fields is fully in his right to make that claim. In the past five decades, Fields’ music was released by 12 different labels, and he toured the world with legends like Kool & The Gang, Sammy Gordon & The Hip Huggers, O.V. Wright, Darrell Banks and Little Royal. Yet his musical career didn’t always go smoothly. Fields was in danger of passing into oblivion more than once, partly due to competition from other major soul artists. In the late 1990s, the singer’s older work was fortunately rediscovered once more, and he has since gained a cult status in the world of soul.
