Union Transfer welcomes North Carolina soul singer Lee Fields to its stage tonight. Over his impressive 43-year career, Fields has released multiple albums and inspired generations of R&B singers. His most recent effort Faithful Man was released last year via Truth and Soul Records. Fields recorded the album with the label’s house band The Expressions who also accompany his live sets. Get tickets to the show here and watch his video for “You’re The Kind Of Girl” below.

Singer-songwriter/record producer Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) will play at the Electric Factory’s Winterwaltz tonight. On his sophomore album Paracosm, which was released back in August on Sub Pop Records, Greene uses more organic sounds that you would encounter in your everyday environment (it opens with the sound of birds chirping) as opposed to the synthetic sounds on 2011’s Within and Without. Get tickets here and watch “All I Know” below.

Philly’s own Bilal will play a show at The Blockley tonight. The neo-soul singer-songwriter released his third album A Love Surreal earlier this year via eOne. He has collaborated with contemporaries such as Common, Erykah Badu, and D’Angelo. Watch “Back To Love” below and get tickets here.
