They are the women of rock history, from Angie Bowie and Jane Asher, to Rita Marley and Pam Courson, that have received little attention for their contribution to the course music took in the 20th century. That will soon change as Double Elvis Productions continues to release music-focused podcast series. Its latest series spotlighting artists and the story behind their craft is called About A Girl, and it chronicles the women behind the scenes of music’s greatest icons, who inspired, loved, supported, and challenged these artists on their way to greatness.
“The women featured in About A Girl have made an impact on music that is often overlooked,” said host Eleanor Wells. “This show is an inside look at some of the most exciting milestones in music history, and a glimpse into the private moments and characters that changed the landscape of music forever.”
The series has released its first two episodes so far, telling the story of Angie Barnett and David Bowie and Pamela Courson and Jim Morrison. During the series, Wells will highlight the story of a dozen women.
“Double Elvis spotlights untold music stories – from up and comers to the beloved. About A Girl celebrates the resilient women who inspired and helped shape some of the most prolific music of a generation – the partners of famous musicians,” said Brady Sadler, cofounder of Double Elvis Productions. “Eleanor dives into the untold stories of these women behind your favorite songs, albums and artists, lending them the credit they deserve, while bringing fans closer to the art they love at a time when live music isn’t an option.”
About A Girl is the latest joint project between Double Elvis Productions and the iHeartPodcast Network. The two companies earlier worked together on Disgraceland and the studio has since released the Dear Young Rocker podcast that like its Def Jam collaboration is a first-person, coming of age story about the struggles of young adulthood and the power of music. They also recently announced they will work on a new podcast called Here Comes the Break with Def Jam Recordings that is set for release in early 2021.
“Double Elvis brings creativity and a fresh perspective to the music podcasting genre,” said Will Pearson, Chief Operating Officer of the iHeartPodcast Network. “About A Girl is yet another groundbreaking series they’ve produced that is redefining what it means to be a music podcast and showcases their knack for captivating storytelling.”
About A Girl will release new episodes every Monday.
