G. Love Composes Score for New Surf Documentary!

August 07 ,2010


A new surf documentary, Grey Whale Sessions, is to premiere at this weekend’s U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach. The film features both the physical talents of surfers Keith Malloy, Tyler Warre, Chris Christenson, as well as the musical talent of Garrett “G. Love” Dutton. Named after the quartet’s grey Volvo station wagon, Grey Whale Sessions documents their five-day surf road trip to Baja, Mexico.

G. Love wrote and recorded the film’s original score mostly while on location.”I’d be sitting on the beach watching those guys surfing so well–especially Tyler and Keith–and tried to play along to them surfing and catch their vibe [for the song], and go along with that,” G. Love said to OCweekly.
