FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


FENDER MUSIC K.K LAUNCHES MAN WITH A MISSION TO FENDER FEEDBACK SERIES
Non-Human Being Representative Jean-Ken Johnny Featured in Fender Content Series

TOKYO, Japan.  (May 26, 2017) – Fender Music K.K. proudly presents MAN WITH A MISSION's guitar and vocalist Jean-Ken Johnny as the sole non-human representative for Fender’s latest episode of the "Fender Feedback" series around the launch of the American Professional. The series features world-renown artists that occupy their own distinct space in the musical landscape and asks about their creative journeys and how their instruments helped guide them along their musical journey.

The series has evolved into a global promotion for Fender's 2017 iconic American Professional electric guitar series which launched earlier this year.  The series debuted in March 2017 with artists including J Mascis, who was filmed in his hometown of Amherst Massachusetts, taking the viewer behind-the-scenes to his practice space at home and personal record collection.  Fender Feedback also includes the Southern California band, Local Natives, singer, producer Ty Dolla $ign, rapper and producer Mac Miller, and soul musician Michael Kiwanuka, all of whom are globally recognized artists. Each episode captures the artists in a raw and intimate setting, introducing their unique encounter with Fender instruments and can be viewed online on Fender's global website and YouTube channel.

The sixth chapter features Jean-Ken Johnny from the globally active rock band hailing from Japan, MAN WITH A MISSION as the non-human representative for Fender. In this episode, Jean-Ken Johnny shares his first memorable encounter with music, as well as his encounter with his beloved Fender instruments, namely the Jaguar and Jazzmaster.

The  MAN WITH A MISSION Fender Feedback Series documentary is available for viewing here.
