One of the biggest treats SXSW had to offer this year was Lee Fields and The Expressions. I didn’t know about these guys before the festival, but I walked away from their set a fan. Lee Fields brought a charisma to the stage that was not to be surpassed, even by other performers decades younger than him. The music is groovy, the band is tight, and Fields rocks it.
If you like soul music, you will love these guys. And if you don’t like soul music, go and check out their live show anyway. You might have a change of heart.
Here’s a shot of Mr. Fields working the crowd. Seriously, this guy was for real with the charisma. There was a lot of swooning going on.
