Located in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, CA, Laurel Canyon connects northern LA suburbs in the San Fernando Valley to artsy West Hollywood and the infamous Sunset Strip. The Canyon housed artists as early as the beginning of the 20th century and became an artist community as the entertainment and night life industry grew. Musicians especially enjoyed the rural feel and seclusion the canyon provided but also its proximity to Sunset Boulevard and beyond. Fast forward to 1965, when our story begins…

Based on the success of California Dreamin’, The Mamas & The Papas took up residence in the Canyon in 1965 which started a movement of artists, both aspiring and successful. Between 1965 and 1975 it redefined American popular music inspiring the “LA sound” of the early 70’s with artists like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Doors, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Neil Young, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, America, and the Eagles.
