(BOSTON, MA – November 23, 2020) -- Double Elvis Productions today announced About A Girl, a new iHeartRadio Original podcast chronicling the women behind the scenes of music’s greatest icons, who inspired, loved, supported, and challenged these artists on their way to greatness.

Listeners can hear the official trailer now on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.
About A Girl is a scripted narrative anthology series highlighting the stories of twelve women who inspired and supported some of the most celebrated and enduring music of the modern age, from Angie Bowie and Jane Asher, to Rita Marley and Pam Courson. Hosted by Eleanor Wells, the writer and director known for short films including The Harpist and Eagle Rock, About A Girl celebrates the unsung feminist heroes behind some of the world’s most iconic musicians and their contributions to music as we know it today.
“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.”
About A Girl is the latest podcast focused on deep-dive storytelling throughout music history from leading music podcast company, Double Elvis.
