The son of a stockbroker, Fielding was born in Woking, Surrey and educated privately. As a child prodigy, he studied violin with Josef Szigeti. He also handled Tommy Steele's early career, and commissioned Half a Sixpence for him.
Fielding married Maisie Joyce Skivens in 1955, and was widowed in 1985. They had no children.
