Lee Fields Announces Extensive Fall Tour

Lee Fields Announces Extensive Fall Tour third album Emma Jean out now via truth & soul records
Lee Fields Announces Extensive Fall Tour-Third Album Emma Jean out now

Soul vet Lee Fields & The Expressions released his latest album Emma Jean earlier this month viaTruth & Soul Records. Coming at a time when many new artists are trying to emulate the soul and swagger of the 1960s, Mr. Fields showers us with authenticity on the 11-track album.


There’s a sharper wisdom in the songwriting–from the having loved, lost, and learned vibe of “Don’t Leave Me This Way” to the sophisticated arrangements and studio acumen that’s paired with Lee’s straightforward sincerity in “Just Can’t Win.” Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) wrote “Paralyzed,” and having Emma Jean mixed and partially recorded at his Nashville studio, country soul and bluesy rock are immediately noticeable. It brings a different kind of strut to the album, but Fields–born and raised in North Carolina–is right at home with the Southern soul sound. In fact, it feels like a natural progression: an organic, refreshingly pure next step.


Emma Jean is the follow up to Fields’ first two Truth & Soul albums—2009’s My World and 2012’s Faithful Man. Lee Fields & The Expressions have forged a distinct soulful sound and a grown style with this album. They’ve pushed their sound in new directions, moving from being content as contemporary soul music royalty and instead delving into and exploring its next steps.
