Echo in the Canyon (2019)
Xshire Movie Trailers, Apr 23, 2019
Echo in the Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA's Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk rock went electric and The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to Los Angeles to emulate The Beatles and Laurel Canyon [north of Sunset Blvd., Hollywood] emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music.
FILM: Echo in the Canyon
Featuring Jakob Dylan, the film explores the beginnings of the Laurel Canyon music scene. Dylan uncovers never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs and how that music continues to inspire today. Echo in the Canyon contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Michelle Phillips, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn and Jackson Browne as well as contemporary musicians they influenced such as Tom Petty (in his very last film interview), Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor, and Norah Jones.
