Faithful Man is Fields’ follow-up to the well-received 2009 album My Worldand his second album for Truth & Soul. The songs on the album feature a modern take on a vintage sound, telling tales of love, heartbreak and blues in a time-honored way. 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. These days, he’s got a sound that’s all his own.
