Pandora today announced it will partner with Questlove to premiere Questlove Supreme, a raw and ingenious three-hour show curated and produced by the four-time GRAMMY winner. The show will be a weekly ride through the global musical landscape featuring adventurous music selections, compelling conversations and revealing interviews with music lovers from the entertainment industry and beyond.
The famed Roots drummer and musical director of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, will also act as Strategic Advisor and the first Artist Ambassador for Pandora. In this role he will work closely with the company providing strategic advice and support for artist initiatives and music product strategy.
Questlove Supreme premieres on Questlove’s new Pandora station on September 8 and will replay for 48 hours each week. Featured guests include Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph, GRAMMY-nominated producer and engineer Bob Power and GRAMMY winner Kimbra. Music featured each week will be thematic to the topics discussed.
“Questlove is one of the most talented and influential artists of our time,” said Tim Westergren, founder and CEO of Pandora.
“His near encyclopedic knowledge of the theory and history of music and his abiding passion for supporting artists of all kinds is a perfect match for our mission. We’re thrilled to have his expertise and counsel, and to share his talents, insights and love of music with our over 78 million listeners.”
“I see in Pandora both a deep respect for the craft of music and a commitment to the musicians that make it their living. When Tim introduced me to the Music Genome Project, and explained its origin and how he and his team developed it, I was blown away,” Questlove added.
“Pandora is a company born of a musician’s experience, and I’m very excited to join them in their mission to create a healthy and vibrant industry for artists and fans alike.”
