Funkiphino also produces and performs their own original music. Choice musicianship as well as artful songwriting are prevalent on their two original CDs and Live Coverage CD.

Lovin' Life, produced by Funkiphino and club music veteran Richard Dekkard (Paula Cole, Dido, Warner Brothers), and Rise Above, produced by Funkiphino and Grammy Award winner Matt Sondowski are both powerhouse compilations worthy of acclaim. The band has recorded at numerous venues including the legendary Skywalker Ranch (George Lucas' studio), in Marin, CA. The band collaborated with horn-arranging great, Dave Eskridge on their last original CD, Rise Above. Rounding out the CD were Rocco Prestia and Doc Kupka of Tower of Power, Jennifer Batten (formerly Michael Jackson's lead guitar player), as well as members of the San Fransisco Symphony and Opera.
Singer, songwriter, guitarist, “voice-stramentalist” and former subway musician, Lipbone Redding travels the world with his guitar, sharing his original music and bringing back stories of the open road. An entertainer with a flair for the weird and comedic, Lipbone weaves his own story with funky rhythms, catchy melodies, brash humor, soulful singing, and inventive guitar playing. A one man orchestra with no electronic efx, his natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience evening of entertainment.
