Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Many More Contribute to Documentary Soundtrack


J. Ralph will be joined by a slew of big names for the upcoming Wretches & Jabberers soundtrack, out Jan. 11, 2011.

The film follows Larry Bissonnette and Tracy Thresher, two autistic men on a quest to raise awareness about the disability. In a press release, Ralph said he was inspired by the story of the film. “To me the story is about finding a voice, for those who’ve suffered so long without one of their own,” he said.

Ralph will be joined on the soundtrack by Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Antony, Vashti Bunyan, Ben Taylor, Bob Weir, Devendra Banhart, Judy Collins, Steven Stills, Scarlett Johannson, Paul Brady, Vincent Gallo, David Garza, Bonnie Bramlett, Nic Jones, Martin Carthy, Lila Downs, and Leah Siegel.
