Stefan Lessard of the Dave Matthews Band wrote and performed the original score for the new documentary Stripped, a love-letter to comic strips. The film features interviews with the world’s best cartoonists talking about the art form as well as what happens when newspapers die. The film is available now on iTunes.
Lessard recruited an impressive group of musicians to assist him with the score, as Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, DMB trumpeter Rashawn Ross, drummer Eric Fawcett and DJ Logic joined the bassist in studio for the Stripped sessions.
This isn’t the first venture into film scoring for Lessard, as he also co-wrote the original music for Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk.
