Married couple Chris “Tin Monk” Holub (Vocal; Guitar) and Dianne Holzhammer-Holub (Vocal; Percussion), and recent addition Sam Allen (Drums, Percussion) are Talking Machine, an Acoustic Power Trio with nearly Fifty years of combined expertise as musicians, song writers, and performers, both in-studio and on the stage.
Chris Holub: A three and a half octave voice, and a guitarist with percussively melodic rhythms and blistering leads.
Dianne Holzhammer: A pitch-perfect powerhouse on vocals, and nearly metronomic percussion.
Sam Allen: A mechanical syncopator on the drums, versatile and unique.
These three synergize almost metaphysically to create a sound complete, proficient, high energy, and raw.
