Echo in the Canyon

USA, Feature Documentary, 2018, 82 min

Echo In The Canyon is a look back at the influence and music of artists (The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas & the Papas, The Beach Boys) from Southern California’s age of innocence (1965–67); the beginnings of Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon music scene; and how the echo of these artists’ creations reverberated between each other and across to London, where it altered the course of The Beatles themselves. Dylan interviews the artists who wrote the songs and discovers why they were written and what life was like in Laurel Canyon in the years before psychedelia and the birth of the singer/songwriter era. He discovers fascinating, never-before-heard personal details behind the recordings and those who made them popular. The songs from that era provide an entry point as Jakob Dylan and a new generation of artists, whose own body of work reflect the echoes of that pivotal time (Beck, Regina Spektor, Cat Power, Norah Jones and others) interpret and perform the songs paying homage to, and in many cases in front of, their authors. Cast includes Jakob Dylan, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Stephen Stills, Brian Wilson, David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, Beck, Regina Spektor, Graham Nash, Cat Power, Lou Adler, John Sebastian, Jackson Browne, Michelle Phillips, Norah Jones, and Jade Castrinos; Directed by Andrew Slater; Written by Andrew Slater and Eric Barrett; Produced by Andrew Slater and Eric Barrett; Executive produced by Jakob Dylan and Dan Braun; Jakob Dylan, Andrew Slater, Eric Barrett and Dan Braun in person
