BRODY DALLE RETURNS WITH SPINNERETTE
New York, NY – Brody Dalle, lead singer and songwriter of the
influential punk band The Distillers, is marking the next step in her
career with her new band Spinnerette. The band will release their first
new music, Ghetto Love, a digital EP available only at
www.SpinneretteMusic.com beginning December 11th. The 4 song EP will
include brand new Spinnerette songs all penned by Brody Dalle and
produced by Alain Johannes. On December 16th, the Spinnerette Ghetto
Love EP will also be available on iTunes.
After disbanding The Distillers in 2006, Brody took the last few years
to regroup and start a family with husband Joshua Homme. During this
time, she began focusing on a new direction to take her music and
mapping out the path to calling her own shots for her new project. The 4
new songs on the Ghetto Love EP – ‘Ghetto Love,’ ‘Valium Knights,’
‘Distorting A Code,’ ‘Bury My Heart,’ represent the first songs written
by Dalle for Spinnerette and are inspired by the birth of her daughter
and death of her father. They touch upon themes of redemption, salvation
“The profound joys and deep sadness in that period couldn’t help but
come out in my art, as with all experiences worth exploring further.
Having such extremes occur in a compacted period ensured that they all
appear in this collection of Spinnerette songs,” Dalle reveals.
Brody has always been the keeper of her own destiny and that spirit is
front and center in this new chapter in her life. Not being one to jump
through hoops for anyone and caring passionately about her art, Brody is
firmly at the helm of releasing her music independently and preserving
complete creative control. “I can’t conform my art to fit someone
else’s expectations. So, in this crazy world of the ‘music business’ –
I’m focused on finding a way to ensure I get to keep doing it for a
living,” adds Dalle.
The fire among Brody Dalle devotees remains ignited as Spinnerette
recently previewed new material at three sold-out shows in Southern
California to captivated audiences of both old and new fans. The blaze
for Dalle has also hit Indie 103 and KROQ in LA, BBC Radio 1 in the UK,
Triple J radio in Australia, and 102.1 The Edge and George
Stroumboulopoulos’ radio show in Canada who have all spun new
Spinnerette music for their listeners.
Ghetto Love was recorded at PinkDuck and 11AD studios in Los Angeles.
Additional musicians on the ep include Alain Johannes (Queens of the
Stone Age, Eleven), Tony Bevilacqua (The Distillers), and Jack Irons
(Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers).
