ARTWORK & PHOTOS
Tom Sykes started songwriting on acoustic guitar after moving the length of England, south to north, in 2018. Taking inspiration from stalwart bands like U2, Simple Minds and Duran Duran, in 2021 Tom set out on a quest for his own epic neo-80's pop-rock soundscape.
The Dialogic sound has arrived. Working in the studio with producer Paul Worthington, and live on stage in a four piece band (Tom on guitar and vocals, Iain Petrie on bass and vocals, Paul Summers on synth, and Jock Leathen on drums), Tom has been crafting big impact songs. Dialogic - songs from the heart with an 80's edge, in dialogue with the here-and-now.
‘Snowstorm in Spring’ is Dialogic's seventh release, on 17th March 2023. Plenty more on the way.
Formed by singer-songwriter Tom Sykes in 2021, Dialogic uses atmospheric guitar, synth and vocals, undergirded by solid grooves to create a distinctive brand of neo-80's pop-rock. Rhythmic, driven, and inspired by bands such as U2 and Simple Minds, prepare to be transported by lyrics from the heart, set in an epic soundscape. Dialogic is a studio project with Tom Sykes and producer Paul Worthington, as well as a four piece band live performance project.

PRESS & MEDIA INFO
INSPIRATION FOR 'SNOWSTORM IN SPRING'
‘Snowstorm in Spring’ is Dialogic's seventh release.
"This song has a special place in my heart since it is the first song I ever wrote, just me and my acoustic guitar, exactly five years ago in 2018 during 'The Beast From the East' extreme weather event in the UK.
My idea of trying my hand at song-writing had been slowly growing underground for some time, and it took the catalyst of being snowed in for this first song to raise its head above ground. I was stirred into action by the poignancy of all the new life outside being put back to sleep with a blanket of snow.
It has taken five years for this song to grow from initial idea to fully-produced studio song. Nature's timetable for growth can't be rushed.
I am pleased with the coincidence that I get my chance to share this with you right after another unusual, snowstormy episode in the UK."
