Members: Talie Wijlens, Jerry de Mars & Jeffrey Holthaus
Dialogue is a straight forward, in your face Groove rock band from the Netherlands. Dialogue combines great musicianship with the ability to write electrifying songs and has grown musically to create a unique joined sound that thrashes genres.
Founded in 1996, the band split up four years later. Talie Wijlens (guitar vocals) and Jerry de Mars (bass) never stopped playing and after working with several drummers Dialogue completed their lineup again a year later with beat-master Jeffrey Holthaus on drums. The studio was the next step.
Dialogue recorded the EP titled True North in the summer of 2001. This EP contains five strong songs among which Ululation and What about us?. A year later the next Ep Jitterbug was recorded with songs like Progression, Drunk at 10 AM and Purple past tense. The last mentioned song placed Dialogue in the finals of the Dutch national radio station 3FM.
The 10 recorded songs review their music ability, yet the live performance is where Dialogue really rocks. Dynamic, hotheaded and powerful, Dialogue live is something to experience, they are catapulting Groove rock to the next level!
