Today, renowned music journalist, media personality, and industry tastemaker Allison Hagendorf announced the second season of her weekly celebrity-interview show, The Allison Hagendorf Show. Premiering in celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, the show will debut with Grammy-Award winning Halestorm frontwoman, Lzzy Hale, who is also being recognized this week as part of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s latest exhibit, Revolutionary Women in Music: Left of Center. Over the past 20 years, Hagendorf has proudly advocated for female artists, starting as an A&R executive and continuing as Global Head of Rock at Spotify, providing a unique platform for artists to share their never-before-heard stories.

Starting on March 7, 2024, weekly video episodes will drop every Thursday at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT, on YouTube, Instagram, and VEVO, with the audio available on all streaming platforms.

"It has always been my passion to celebrate the music, culture, and storytelling that inspires, entertains, and connects us all,” said Hagendorf. “It’s incredibly rewarding to sit down with such inspirational icons each week, knowing we’re hearing their intimate stories for the first time, and learning from their personal journeys. I’m honored to offer my guests an opportunity to share their heartfelt experiences, connecting with fans on a deeper level.”

“We are big fans of Allison and have been for decades,” says Danny Wimmer, founder of DWP. “She is an unbelievable storyteller in not only the rock n’ roll space, but in pop culture. We watched the first season and saw something special in the works and knew we had to be involved in this chapter of her prolific career. We’re thrilled to be partnering up to produce stories rooted in our mutual love of music.”
