Jimi Hendrix’s AUTHENTIC HENDRIX brand retail program lining up for 2019

Epic Rights and Perryscope Productions appoint over 50 licensees globally to rollout Authentic Hendrix retail program.

Epic Rights and Perryscope Productions, the exclusive worldwide merchandising agents for Authentic Hendrix and Experience Hendrix, have announced global retail licensing partnerships with best-in-class manufactures and licensees to develop a comprehensive Authentic Hendrix retail program.

The announcement comes shortly after news of the Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary reissue and box set. The Electric Ladyland box set, to be released November 9th, will include never-before shared music, photography and artwork. The all-new, official Jimi Hendrix e-commerce site is offering an exclusive Electric Ladyland 50th Anniversary bundle. Additionally, new and unique products are available on the Jimi Hendrix Amazon Store which has become the Hendrix go-to since its spring launch.

Building on this momentum, Epic Rights and Perryscope Productions have secured over 50 licensees in multiple product categories, with plans to introduce exclusive capsule collections and one-of-a-kind merchandise promotions, to be announced in the months to come.

Janie Hendrix, CEO/President of Experience Hendrix and Authentic Hendrix, stated: “Jimi’s amazing artistry and his legacy are the driving force behind all that we do. Keeping his music prominent within the industry is a responsibility bestowed upon us that we embrace.  Jimi’s catalogue remains relevant, and he continues to influence the culture of modern music, inspiring artists and fans alike.  The spirit he poured into his songs has lived on for over five decades. Epic and Perryscope have chosen licensing partners who embrace Jimi’s style to create products reflective of his uniqueness, and we are thrilled to see these products come to life.”

Dell Furano, CEO Epic Rights, and Norman Perry, President Perryscope Productions, jointly stated: “Securing industry leading licensees and manufacturers to design and distribute unique and high-quality Hendrix products has been core to building the Authentic Hendrix brand. We look forward to further growing the Authentic Hendrix licensing program globally, as we continue to honor the greatest guitarist of all time.”
