Lee Fields & the Expressions @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
""I consider myself a true soul man," declares Lee Fields with a confident laugh.After a trip to Austin which included a Carson Daly showcase at Red 7 (where Carson played drums with Thee Oh Sees and Cults also played), Lee Fields & the Expressions returned to NYC in time to headline a Saturday night show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The Jay Vons opened for the soulful friend of Sharon Jones. Here are some pictures from the NYC show. More of them, setlist included, below...
It's hard to argue with the North Carolina native. He's been on the grind since cutting his first single in 1969, an aching cover of James Brown's "Bewildered" that helped earn him the nicknames Little J.B. and Soul Brother No. 2. He's been at it ever since, in a journeyman's career full of hills and valleys.
"Oh man, more downs than ups, but the ups have been so beautiful," he says." [Austin Chronicle]
