Brody Dalle of "The Distillers"

Brody Dalle (born January 1, 1979; Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia), is the lead vocalist and guitarist for punk rock band The Distillers. Brody's birthname is Bree Leslie Pucilowski.

Dalle is known for her raspy but powerful voice. "She has a voice like a gravel truck with a broken axel but she never misses a note," once said Brett Gurewitz.

When she was young, she was expelled from school and sent to a Catholic girl's institution. She started a band of her own, Sourpuss, which developed a fanbase following and played alongside Beastie Boys and Sonic Youth at Australia's Somersault Festival. She met Tim Armstrong, the frontman of the punk band Rancid at this festival when she was sixteen. Dalle married Armstrong shortly after turning eighteen. She moved from Melbourne to Los Angeles, California and there founded The Distillers.

The Distillers released their self-titled first album in 2000 receiving acclaim and comparisons to Hole. By the time The Distillers came back to the studio for their second album, the band had a complete rehaul and had a new lineup with Dalle. The Distillers sophomore effort was Sing Sing Death House. Their 2003 third release was Coral Fang. That same year they played Lollapalooza.

Brody and Tim divorced in 2003 and Brody reverted to using the surname of her favorite actress Béatrice Dalle of Betty Blue fame. After the divorce from Tim Armstrong, Brody became an outcast from the punk scene in LA, and the song The Gallow is God is about this betrayal and outcast she faced - "Oh how my death march brings a tear to your eye, Oh how the noose it swings when you die." She is, as of Summer 2003, in a relationship with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, and their first child is due in January 2006.
