“I’m deep like the concept of footprints in the sand.” – Christopher L. Fields (“The Christopher Fields Project”)
In this day and age, there are two types of spoken word artists: those who “spit” their poetry and those who deliver it with a prophetic voice of knowledge. Christopher L. Fields is part of the second category. This master lyricist is aware of his purpose, and certainly not afraid of letting the rest of the world know about it.
It took three years for Fields to record and release his debut album. “The Christopher Fields Project” is a labour of love that deserves international acclaim. Every track draws haunting landscapes where art and emotions meet in an entrancing whirl of words, music and voices. Fields’ masterful delivery works its magic in every possible way.
However, this album also has an ‘activist’ side. Whether he speaks on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (“Katrina Blues”), the importance of acknowledging one’s roots and standing up for the future of one’s community (“Black Man”), or on the beauty of Love (“Type of Love,” “Love Jones” and “I Love U”), Fields spreads his pearls of wisdom with a rare thoughtfulness and composure.
Ultimately, “The Christopher Fields Project” tells the story of an artist with an intense passion for deep poetical discourses, a passion that is delightfully contagious. This is an album to own, treasure and pass on to future generations.
