ECHO IN THE CANYON
Los Angeles 2018
DOC NYC, Berkshire, Santa Barbara
A look back at the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas all birthed the beginnings of the Laurel Canyon music scene. Andrew Slater’s film shows how the echo of these artists’ creations reverberated between each other and ultimately across the world with a timelessness that continues today. Featuring Tom Petty, Brian Wilson, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Michelle Phillips, Jackson Browne, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Roger McGuinn, John Sebastian, Lou Adler, Norah Jones, Beck, Regina Spektor, Cat Power, and others, the film was executive produced by Jakob Dylan. Dylan journeys to meet the creators of iconic Laurel Canyon songs and uncovers never before heard personal details behind the recordings from those who made them popular.
