Encore Magazine

Forty years after his untimely death at 27, Jimi Hendrix’s musical legacy continues to be appreciated by his fans while attracting new followers, and transcending generational boundaries. While Hendrix’s catalog has been continuously repackaged over the years we will now hear much more from the legendary singer/guitarist. Last year, Seattle-based Experience Hendrix, the Hendrix family-owned company founded by Al Hendrix, Jimi’s father (and now headed by Jimi’s stepsister Janie Hendrix as its president/CEO) struck an 8 year worldwide licensing deal with Sony Music Entertainment. Encore Magazine recently spoke with Janie Hendrix about the new album, future releases, lawsuit tribulations, growing up as Jimi Hendrix’s little sister, and the massive task it is to oversee Jimi’s legacy.
