About Us

Vinyl. Audio. Lifestyle.
Spinster Records is a vinyl record and music lifestyle store located in the North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. Drop by our space–we live for helping people build music collections. 

Here you can find new and vintage vinyl records, turntables and other hi-fi audio hardware, along with apparel, books, jewelry and other one-of-a-kind items selected by our staff. We host in-store performances, book signings, and music industry panels every week. This is a place where creativity still drives the music.

We get out, too! Get in touch with us about pop-ups, all-vinyl DJ sets, event bookings and music programming.

David Grover

What kind of crazy man opens a vinyl record store in 2015?  Someone who has been watching music and retail industries evolve for the last 30 years.
.
Born in Los Angeles and raised in Honolulu, David Grover fronted the 90's Paisley Underground/Power Pop band, Loud Sugar. He also ran the Indie label Angel Dust Records, DJ'd and hosted “Twister”, a seminal dance music night in L.A, and was the lead singer/songwriter for LA Indie bands Drop and The Fizzies.
.
Starting in the late 90s, Grover took his industry knowledge to big box retailers like Circuit City and Best Buy to infuse his perspective and management skills into their organizations. This odd juxtaposition of skills and experiences brought about the Spinster Records concept: create a unique space for live music and vinyl record culture in a place where people can exchange ideas and the love and passion of music.

Aileen Herrera
.
Aileen is our true "born and raised in Oak Cliff" girl. She grew up listening to R&B, hip hop, and Latin music. Despite the fact that she cites R&B/Soul, Rhythm & Blues, and Rock 'n' Roll as her favorite genres, that can change at any time to reflect the day’s mood. With an eye and an ear for all things fresh, Spinster appointed this low key fashionista guardian of the vinyl lifestyle accessories and look and feel of the store.
.
Aileen appreciates the way music brings all people together and can often be sighted at the store’s live events whether she’s working or not. Aileen takes immeasurable pride in connecting with members of our community and matching the vibe to our customers and their love of music. She can help you pick out a new turntable and make you feel better about being alive in a single interaction.

Kate Siamro
.
If you haven't seen our "proud to be Canadian" Kate on our @spinsterrecords Instagram feed talking about her latest and greatest music picks, what are you waiting for!?
.
A breath of fresh air amongst the world of cynical music nerds, Kate was born to a musical/artistic family (her dad in 80's new wave band "Direktive 17" and her mom modeled in runway shows in Toronto), and actively pursues interests ranging from art, fashion, music, and beyond. She will excite you with her passion for the latest/greatest local Dallas band, newest sleeper film, happening art event, best bottle of French wine, or maybe something else, eh?
.
A true concert junkie, she’s spent the last few years hitting spots like the Sydney Music festival, Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Paris disco nights at the REX club.  And if THAT’S not enough for you, Kate also curates fantastic music events at Spinster Records and helms her "What's Spinning" Facebook page for Spinster Records. Ask her for some vinyl recommends for your latest adventure; she’s guaranteed to pick the right one for you.
