That sweet soul music
Old school funk/soul fans will love Lee Fields and The Expressions. Born and raised in Wilson, North Carolina, Lee began his singing career, working with the bands that lay the foundation for funk music, including Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, and Little Royal. Renowned throughout the global Funk community, Lee Fields has poured his grunts and screams over a legacy of funk and soul hits from the early seventies, including such 45 rpm classics as She’s a Lovemaker, The Bullis Coming, and The Funky Screw. In 2007 he joined the funk purist label Truth & Soul and The Expressions were born. Their music is more than just a carbon copy of old school soul, it has developed into a deeply soulful mix of old and new and each song they make is choked full of raw emotion that permeates deep through your ear hole straight to the soul. Their "My World" album was awarded the title of best Soul-Album 2009 - and now you can hear them right here in Cologne. Get down to Bogen 2 next weekend for some of that sweet, soul, music - just like they used to make it.
