Raised on 60s rock, steeped in 90s Britpop ennui, and guided by contemporary neo-soul, Lee Walter Redding weaves dry humor into vibrant sonic textures that sway from wistful to chaotic. Think 2010s Nick Lowe fronting The Velvet Underground. On warped vinyl. Lee Walter Redding has released one album, one EP and multiple singles. Before recording as Lee Walter redding, Joshua Davidson recorded and performed as Orthon Anderthon.
