Group Description

Jimi Hendrix is considered by many to be the greatest Rock performer in history. He was also a writer, poet, producer, visual artist, philosopherand shamanic visionary
Electric Church was a quasi-spiritual belief that electric music brings out emotions, feelings, and creative ideas in people, and encourages spiritual maturity. It was popularized by Jimi Hendrix and his band The Jimi Hendrix Experience, as well as other followers of psychedelic music in the 1960s.

In an interview on the Dick Cavett Show in 1969, Cavett asked Hendrix about the Electric Church. Hendrix replied by saying that he designed his music so that it would be able to go "inside the soul of the person, and awaken some kind of thing inside, because there are so many sleeping people". In an interview promoting his third album Electric Ladyland, Jimi Hendrix said "the influence the psychedelics have on one is truly amazing, and I only wish more people appreciated this belief and genre". When asked why he didn't name the album "Electric Church" instead of "Electric Ladyland", Hendrix said that some ladies were "electric too".

Hendrix made numerous allusions to the concept in his musical work, most famously in his widely distributed live performance of the song "Red House", in which he introduces his band by saying that he is about to present them all to the "Electric Church".
