Born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts, Victor's love for music was cultivated and shaped by his mother, a singer and a Julliard-trained pianist. After attending Bowdoin College, Victor moved to the San Francisco/Bay Area where he built a successful business and began studying voice and songwriting. In 1998, a mutual friend introduced Victor to the Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter, Kashif (Kenny G, George Benson, Whitney Houston), which led to their collaboration on his debut album, Promise (1999).
In 1998, a mutual friend introduced Victor to the Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter, Kashif (Kenny G, George Benson, Whitney Houston), which led to their collaboration on his debut album, Promise (1999). Released on Victor's independent label, Regina Records, the CD gained impressive reviews and a strong cult following. In 2002, Victor followed with the disc, 52nd Street, produced by famed guitarist, Chris Camozzi (Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton).
The CD, with featured guests Chris Botti, Jeff Lorber, Nelson Braxton and Gerald Albright received critical acclaim and landed at #12 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart.
In 2005, Fields and Camozzi once again collaborated on the "Victor" CD. A collection of contemporary interpretations of jazz standards and compositions by celebrated songwriters Diane Warren, Stevie Wonder, Vince Gill and Chuck Loeb, the disc also highlighted Victor's mastery of a wide offering of musical styles ranging from contemporary jazz, R&B and adult pop to even theatrical Broadway-esque tunes.
With his latest release Thinking of You, Victor once again showcases his gifts as a song master in action featuring smooth jazz stars Richard Elliot, Jeff Lorber, and Rick Brausn. The first two singles are receiving international radio airplay and placed in the top 10 on the Indie Smooth Jazz and in the top 30 on the Urban AC Radio and Records Charts.
