"Natalie Maines, a staunch backer of the West Memphis Three, performed the Pink Floyd song "Mother" live with Ben Harper in the summer of 2012 and decided to record it for West of Memphis: Voices For Justice. Maines and Harper produced this studio recording of the song, which features Ben on lap-steel guitar."

The Linor Documentary to feature score by Ben Harper (& closing credits song by Ben & Natalie Maines)

Here is some information about Ben's participation in The Linor Documentary:

We’ve had two great events recently. Thank you to Santa Monica-UCLA Rape Treatment Center board member Jenny Belushi, who hosted a focus group screening in September, and to David Hoberman, who hosted one last week. In attendance at Jenny’s was Grammy winning artist Ben Harper. The Linor Documentary will mark the first feature documentary scored by Ben. We’re so honored that Ben Harper, who has been a friend and supporter of the film since the very beginning, has shared his talents with us. Additional music by Martin Tillman, and Daniel Lessner & Alessio Nanni, rounds out the beautiful soundtrack.

We were joined at David Hoberman’s by Bonnie Abaunza (RC Productions, Amnesty International) who is motivated to help us get the film out to women in crisis all over the world. Also present was Natalie Maines (pictured above, with Linor), who collaborated with Linor and Ben on the film’s original closing credits song, “Forgiveness.”
