Spinnerette is an alternative rock, indie rock solo project of Australian musician Brody Dalle. For this project she has collaborated with Tony Bevilacqua (former member of The Distillers), Jack Irons (What Is This?, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Walk The Moon, Eleven, and Pearl Jam) and Alain Johannes (What Is This?, Walk The Moon, Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures). Dalle announced the emergence of the project in March 2007.
Spinnerette was signed to Sire Records before Dalle negotiated out of the record contract. Initially she released one demo song on her website called "Case of the Swirls". She is now signed to Anthem Records. A full album was released on June 17, 2009.
On August 8, 2008 a blog was posted on Spinnerette's MySpace announcing that fans can now hear the first song from the upcoming album via the official website. The song is called "Valium Knights". Brody performed a live version of "Driving Song" with Queens Of The Stone Age as a backing band for the Natasha Shneider benefit concert.
Through the newsletter sent out to mailing list subscribers in October 2008, and later on the web site it was announced that Spinnerette was to perform several dates throughout October.
Dalle stated in an interview that there would be a different line-up when she tours the album. "Spinnerette isn't a band, it's me and whichever musicians I want to work with at the time." She later clarified that she was referring to the touring band and not the studio musicians.
On May 27, 2009, the following was posted on the band's website: "We are stoked to announce that we’ll be joining the Leeds & Reading Festival line-up this year. Spinnerette are playing 28 August at Leeds and 29 August at Reading, on the same day as our friends the Arctic Monkeys and Eagles of Death Metal." They toured through 2009, with support coming from bands such as Little Fish, Band of Skulls and Fun Loving Criminals among others.
In 2010, the band won Best Pop/Rock Album at the Independent Music Awards for their album Spinnerette.
Dalle recently posted on her Twitter account that the band is currently in the studio recording their follow-up release. She has confirmed she is working with Shirley Manson of Garbage on at least one track.
