Lipbone Redding

That’s not a trombone you’re hearing... It’s a human voice. Former subway musician Lipbone Redding revs up the party and makes lots of sounds with only his lips. He not only imitates a trombone, he is an accomplished soloist, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer. He's the Jazz, Blues, Jam and Soul version of a human beat-box ... Make that a “Human Sweet Box.” Inventive voicestrumentalist and Southern Gentleman, Lipbone Redding, creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. "...Redding himself - who just could be the hottest trombonist around" - Jim Primock, Colorado Blues Society Storyteller, songwriter, guitarist and voice-stramentalist Lipbone Redding, has spent the last 20 years traveling the world collecting and recounting exotic tales through music and performance art. With humble beginnings as a New York City subway singer, Lipbone now performs in festivals, theaters and concert halls across America and Europe. What began as an attempt to populate his songs with more soloing, has become a trademark and an innovative instrument all its own. Redding worked the subways of New York City during the late night hours in 1998 through 2001 singing soulful ballads and stomping out echoey grooves. Late one night when a crowd of weary straphangers had gathered on the northbound side of the uptown 6 platform at Spring street, something amazing happened.
