Echo in the Canyon
Echo in the Canyon is a film and record conceived and produced by Andrew Slater documenting the music of Laurel Canyon in the mid 60's. The songs of The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Momma's and Poppa's, are brought to life in a new light by Jakob Dylan as he explores a repertoire of songs with artists like Cat Power, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Neil Young, Beck, Eric Clapton, Josh Homme, Jade Castrinos and Regina Spektor. The film includes interviews with David Crosby, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, John Sebastion, Michelle Phillips and Brian Wilson to name just a very few. The story of those times, told from the people who lived it.
For me, it's an honor to have been part of this project since it's very beginning playing the 12-string Rickenbacker guitar, a significant voice in the music of that era. And it's an even bigger honor that the film will make it's premier at the LA Film Festival Sept. 20 at the Ford Amphitheater followed by a performance from the Jakob and the band and special guests.
A release of the film and record is anticipated in the coming months and we look forward to your reaction to this incredible exploration of an era past...
