Description

Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. 1965-67 was a moment when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles, and Laurel Canyon 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.

Director and co-writer Andrew Slater's documentary explores the musical legacy of Laurel Canyon: a mountainous neighbourhood in the Hollywood Hills region that became a countercultural hub in the 1960s and early 1970s. With archival footage and insights from contemporary musicians, it pays tribute to the enduring influence of West Coast music icons such as The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas.

Hollywood Reporter

(23 Sep 2019, )
New York Times
"The delight of ECHO IN THE CANYON is in the delicious details its subjects impart. Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas remembers Brian Wilson’s living room, a piano planted on the sand-covered floor as he wrote the Beach Boys’ influential PET SOUNDS album..."
