Lipbone Redding shares his voice-strumentalist talents.
Hailing from North Carolina, Lipbone Redding is an award-winning vocalist, guitar player, voice-strumentalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher and traveler. He is best known for his one-man orchestra show; simultaneously playing, singing and making the instrument sounds with his mouth and without the use of a loop pedal.
Lipbone incorporates American Roots, Blues and Jazz with world influences including Indian, Middle Eastern, African and Latin styles. 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. His natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience.
Theaters, festivals, house concerts and private parties make up the bulk of Lipbone's schedule of 200 performances per year. Lipbone collaborates regularly and performs often as a special guest.
In addition to a thriving commercial music career, Lipbone has been an active member of the yoga community, since 2003, performing for classes and offering concerts at healing arts centers around the world. In 2017 he began offering his OmPrana workshop, a 90 minute immersive experience focused on breath, music and meditation.
