A one-man orchestra with no electronic effects or loop pedal, Lipbone Redding uses his lips as a vibrating trombone, combining his signature sound with throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, weaving his stories with funky rhythms, catchy melodies, brash humor, soulful singing, and inventive guitar playing. From the swampy farmlands and beach towns of his rural home in coastal North Carolina, Lipbone Redding was steeped early on in the traditions of soul, boogie and blues before carving his name into the New York music scene as a subway musician and then a staple of the East Village.
