Lee Fields: Faithful Man
July 16, 2023 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Feature Narrative/2022/USA/76min/Directed by Jessamyn Ansary, Joyce Mishaan
Lee Field’s voice has been compared to James Brown and, boasting a career that spans five decades, the singer has worked with the likes of Kool and the Gang, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Darrell Banks, Little Royal, B.B King, Bobby Womack and many others.
Nine years in the making, Lee Fields: Faithful Man tells the singer’s story, charting his life and musical career.
More than this, the film explores his on-going influence within soul music as well as the importance of the analogue recording process in creating the sound of deep soul music (check out Amy Winehouse and the Dap-Kings).
Great music, in-depth interviews and archive footage combine in a music documentary which should have everybody rushing out to buy Field’s music as soon as the cinema lights come on.
