Back in the day, when critically acclaimed, chart-topping, San Francisco Bay Area Jazz vocalist, Victor Fields was starting his music career, working a day job and performing music on the side, the legendary Lou Rawls and entourage caught Victor's live performance in a small club in Oakland. Rawls called Fields “the man with the golden voice,” and inspired Victor to launch a full-fledged recording career. Rawls once said the immortal words, “Soul is Truth,” and Victor Fields fulfills that reality brilliantly on highly anticipated release, THE LOU RAWLS PROJECT - A sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics. In addition to the first single, the smooth and romantic “Let Me Be Good To You,” the singer lends his graceful caress to the balmy, gently swaying “Lady Love” (featuring producer Chris Camozzi on guitar), the smoky “Let’s Fall In Love All Over Again” and Rawls’ Philly SOUL trademark classic, “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine.” It’s not braggin’ on himself, baby, to call Fields’ THE LOU RAWLS PROJECT a true masterpiece.

Bio :


In this era of disposable music and “flavor of the month” idols, there remain few artists who truly study their craft, sing songs with style and substance, and strive to create a significant body of work that stands the test of time. Victor Fields is one such artist. It has been written that Victor Fields belongs to a rare species of silky soul jazz singers. Based in Oakland, CA., Victor's rich gauzy tenor and his ability to move seamlessly between the blues, jazz, R&B and Pop prompted the legendary Lou Rawls to call him “the man with the golden voice” and the Los Angeles Times to describe him as "a stylistically accomplished singer who deserves much more attention".

Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Worcester, MA, Victor’s love of music was cultivated and shaped by his mother, a singer and a Julliard-trained pianist. After college, Victor moved to Oakland, CA. While building a successful business career, he studied voice and performed at local jazz clubs. It wasn't long before he began the full-time pursuit of his life-long love.  

A close friend introduced Victor to Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter, Kashif (Kenny G, George Benson, Whitney Houston), which led to their collaboration on his debut album, “Promise” (1999). The CD gained impressive reviews and a loyal fan base. In 2002, Victor followed with, “52nd Street”, produced by famed guitarist, Chris Camozzi (Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton) and landed at #12 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart.

In 2005, Fields and Camozzi once again collaborated on “Victor”, a self-named project and a collection of contemporary interpretations of jazz standards and compositions by celebrated songwriters like Stevie Wonder, Vince Gill and Chuck Loeb. He quickly came back In 2006, with  “Thinking of You”, and contemporary interpretations of hits like Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day”, the Teddy Pendergrass classic, “When Somebody Loves You Back” and others.

As a performer he has shared the stage with Isaac Hayes, Cameo, Dee Dee Bridgewater, James Ingram, Patti Austin, Regina Belle and Atlantic Starr. After a sold out performance at Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar, a fan wrote: "Victor, you have perfected what you do and make it seems so easy. God has smiled on you, and we hear that when you sing".

Now recognized as a critically-acclaimed jazz vocalist and leading interpreter of classic American music, Victor continues to demonstrate his incredible gifts and range as an artist and entertainment entrepreneur. With a catalogue featuring luminaries like Gerald Albright, Eric Marienthal, Jeff Lorber, Tom Politzer, Richard Elliot, Chris Camozzi, Kashif, Rodney Franklin, Rick Braun, and Nelson Braxton, Victor is poised to release his much-anticpated 5th CD, “The Lou Rawls Project” in early 2015.
