Lee Fields
Veteran soul belter Lee Fields's discography stretches back four decades, but it wasn’t until the late 1990s that he began releasing music at a consistent clip. The North Carolina native really hit his stride on his latest, Faithful Man, so we're excited to get a peek at the newie, Emma Jean, out June 3. Support comes from vintage funksters Ikebe Shakedown, who re-create the kind of vibrant sounds that send crate-digging DJs into spasms of joy.
