b. Alfred Lamar Broomfield, 29th September 1954, Vidalia, Georgia, U.S.A.



d. 13th August 2019, Miami, Florida, U.S.A.



Al Broomfield has died. Al was 64.



His people sent me this short bio, a few years ago. His page link is also below.



'Alfred Lamar Broomfield was born September 29, 1954 in Vidalia, Georgia a small town well known for its sweet onions. The family resided in Miami, Florida where Broomfield began his musical conquest at the age of 12. In many local churches, Al nurtured his vocal abilities and upon entering high school, began to play the tenor saxophone. Tenor Saxophone was the first instrument this musical prodigy mastered. Soon after came the guitar, which led him to the beat of the drums that he played for fifteen years.

During the late 1960’s and early 70’s Broomfield played in a local band where he became frustrated with the musical interpretation of his compositions. From this chaos emerged a new an innovative pianist with ingenious, soulful and charismatic vocal styling. Broomfield stirs the elements of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Brian McKnight and many others as you listen to his music.

Broomfield’s music has been heard in more than 40 countries beginning with the 1987 self-titled Broomfield on Vision Records. Broomfield has not released an album since 1991 when he produced ‘Certain Kinds of Weather’ on the independent N’Effekt Records label. Broomfield remains a force to be reckoned with and he is back with a vengeance. His repertoire has grown to over 1,000 songs and we all are waiting impatiently for him to embark into the new millennium.

Broomfield suffered the tragic loss of one of his sons in 2008 and wants to bring the spiritual light of this experience to fruition by dispersing his musical vision onto the world. Let’s welcome him back'.
