Kate Magdalena's "CANYONLANDS” Recalls Music of the 60's Laurel Canyon Folk Sound to Now


"have you never felt the shadow eavesdrop from the long leaves..."

The Sixties made its imprint on almost every aspect of our lives, changing the world from a place that had been bound in some fundamental ways, to one that became aware of some of the bindings, if not freed from them. From models of beauty, and social mores that had held humanity in the its grasp for generations, to political, economic, and spiritual elements, there was a sudden expansion of authentic expression which had seemed close to being snuffed out for lack of oxygen!

The likes of the beat movement and jazz made the perfect fertile ground for the explosion of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, and out of Laurel Canyon, Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills & Nash and many others. It was the music that provided the fuel for so many changes that went worldwide and still affect our lives today.

Laurel Canyon is the inspiration for Kate Magdalena’s newest song, and the title track of her new album, “CANYONLANDS.’” The song grew out of the very special confluence of influences that made Laurel Canyon a cultural birthplace of the 1960s.

Jakob Dylan’s film Laurel Canyon evoked that unique combination of sixties elements that inspired Kate’s song. Magdalena is aware of the unique privilege of having experienced the Sixties firsthand, and been deeply shaped by that music, with a voice to sing with, and the heart to bring something of the those times to these through this song.

Canyonlands is the title track for Magdalena’s upcoming album CANYONLANDS out this fall. The chorus of the song calls out “Canyonlands are calling us, can you hear the sounds, traveling the sands of time from eucalyptus grounds.” Kate is aware of the poignant passage of the time from then until now, and how the lessons of those earlier times call for our listening today. Lessons of peace, lessons of love, lessons of nature.
