Echo in The Canyon

"A richly evocative and entertainingly anecdotal overview of the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene."- Variety

“Tightly framing the Los Angeles music scene with a focus on the mid-'60s emergence of folk rock in the city’s storied Laurel Canyon district, Echo in the Canyon deftly captures the diversity of influences that launched groundbreaking bands like The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas and Buffalo Springfield to international acclaim.

“Music industry vet and first-time filmmaker Andrew Slater leverages his extensive connections to coax many luminaries of the era on camera, effortlessly interviewed by singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan of the Wallflowers. Rich with revealing observations and engaging anecdotes, Slater’s documentary skirts the nostalgia trap by entertainingly connecting with an impressive lineup of contemporary singer-songwriters referencing the influential '60s pop style with their own releases.

“When the Dylan began work on an album covering songs by a variety of original folk-rock bands titled Echo in the Canyon, he and Slater recognized the opportunity to realize a more comprehensive project. The documentary includes profiles of prominent musicians from the period, as well as footage from a 2015 Los Angeles tribute concert headlined by Dylan.

“Musical selections include an unbeatable lineup of period songs by the original artists or cover versions performed by Dylan and his collaborators.” - The Hollywood Reporter
