Pulse Podcast
Singer known as 'vocal instrumentalist'
Posted August 31, 2007
When Lawrence Redding was playing the subways in New York City, he needed some instrumental accompaniment. Instead of finding a friend that played a horn, he decided to make up the sounds himself - with his own mouth. Now, he's known as "Lipbone Redding" for the trombone/flugelhorn noises he conjures up without an instrument. Redding, whose music mixes elements of roots, Americana, funk, jam soul and R&B, comes to the Lawrence Public Library for a show at 7 p.m. Tuesday. In this week's Pulse Podcast, Redding talks about how he came up with the "lipbone," as well as how his background influenced his musical style. After that, you can find out what is going on in Lawrence this weekend in our weekly Best Bets feature.
