A One-Man Orchestra. Unplugged…& Unexpected.
In his early twenties, Lawrence “Lipbone” Redding migrated from North Carolina to New York City with his guitar. After a brief stint as an actor, carpenter, bartender and producer for the Museum of Sound Recording… he promptly became a subway musician.
From 1998 to 2001 Lipbone honed his guitar and people skills in subway tunnels beneath Manhattan. By 2002 his craft allowed him to travel and make a living wherever life took him: India, Europe, South America, New Orleans, San Francisco. On the road, he forged lifelong collaborative relationships with producers, artists and masters around the globe.
In 2005 Lipbone Redding emerged into New York city’s vibrant East Village nightlife, where he became a staple of the downtown music scene. From 2005-2012 he held a residency at the tiny but famous Jules Jazz Bistro on historic Saint Mark’s Place. Friday night and Sunday brunch with The Lipbone Orchestra became a regular happening frequented by hipsters and tourists alike. It was amidst the champagne and rowdy cabaret atmosphere that Lipbone developed his signature Jazzy Lip Trombone, and his unique style of musical storytelling.
Meeting legendary Record Producer and founder of Atlantic Redords, Ahmet Ertegun, in 2006 was pivotal for Lipbone. Ahmet motioned for Lipbone to take a seat at his table, and offered his hand, then leaned in to confide, “You play trombone with no trombone, better than some trombone players that I know.” Lipbone took it as a blessing and hasn’t looked back since.
Since 2012, in order to maintain a travel lifestyle 200 engagements per year, Lipbone has returned to his roots and has sprouted new shoots. With an uncanny vocal range, a nylon string guitar, a wooden spoon duct-taped to his foot and a lifetime of stories are all he needs to get the party started.
Lipbone Redding mostly tours as a solo act but collaborates regularly with other musicians and his trio, The Lipbone Orchestra. He has shared the stage with many great artists including Marcia Ball, John Mayall, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Tab Benoit, Cyril Neville, Jimmy Hall, Jonathan Edwards, Rita Wilson, Shemekia Copeland, Tommy Castro and others.
Lipbone has taken his singular vocal instrumental style to a new level by playing guitar and producing all of the instrument sounds while simultaneously singing and storytelling without the use of electronic effects nor a loop pedal. Really, you should check him out.
