Brooklyn based soul artist Lee Fields is a soul artist in the truest sense. Today, if you threw something into a room full of musicians, chances are it would hit someone who plays “soul/______ fusion.” That is not the case with Lee Fields. Lee Fields and his band The Expressions play soul. They play soul and they do it well, frequently inviting comparisons to James Brown. In fact, some might say he’s tread too close to James Brown territory in the past. But no one would say that his most recent release, Faithful Man, is anything but Lee Fields’ own style. Lee Fields & The Expressions will be playing at Stubb’s tomorrow night, but you can hear them live RIGHT HERE in Studio 1a.
