Stefan Lessard solo album in the works
Stefan Lessard is recording a solo album in Los Angeles this week.
Since that post, more information has come out. Eric Fawcett, drummer for N.E.R.D. and Stefan’s Yukon Kornelius band mate, posted a picture of his drum kit in the studio on Twitter yesterday with this message: “Out of shape and huffing through set up for sessions this week with @SLessard at @VillageStudios. Love these drums!”
And Fawcett’s music production company, Egg Music, posted this message: “Exciting things afoot at Egg! Including @ericfawcett in LA this week working w/ @SLessard of [@davematthewsbnd] on his new solo record.” Stefan also posted a photo of Fawcett “in the studio putting down some magic.”
The Stefan Lessard solo album will mark the third individual album by a Dave Matthews Band member. Boyd Tinsley released True Reflections in 2003, followed by Dave Matthews’ Some Devil later that year.
UPDATE (4/10, 8:57 P.M.): Stefan posted this message on Twitter this afternoon: “To clarify Solo Project = Stripped I’m not working on a Solo “album” Yet. Carry on.” This project is apparently the recording of the score for “Stripped,” a documentary about comics. Rashawn Ross is also working on this project with Stefan and Fawcett.
