After a chance meeting with Sire Records’ legendary Seymour Stein at a music conference in Australia, where American born Ben Fields had been living and working in a café, the aspiring singer and songwriter took a leap of faith. Stein had offered Fields his business card and told him to look him up if he was ever in NYC. Well, that was enough for Fields. He packed up his girlfriend, their dog, furniture and lives and moved to NYC. Fields showed up at Stein’s office with a 12-track album and the rest is history.
