Biography

Tim
Korry was born in Miami, Florida with music in his blood. Following in
his Irish great grandfathers fiddle- playing footsteps, Tim began
mastering the guitar at the age of 17. While continuously writing, Tim
also picked up on percussion instruments and bass guitar. His primary
musical influences were Peter Gabriel, The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and U2.
By the early 1990s, Tim happened upon a few other talented Milwaukee
musicians and co-founded the band Rhinocerotic. He added his guitar,
vocal, and songwriting stylings to this psychedelic groove- rock band as
they recorded two successful albums and developed a strong and faithful
following-- opening locally for Green Day and Badfinger, and performing a post show for The Black Crowes. Tim and Rhinocerotic also played the Rock Stage at Milwaukees Big Gig Summerfest many times, and performed on the nationally syndicated Jenny Jones Show in 1999. Tim went on to lend his songwriting and performance talent to local cover and blues bands D- Flowers, Mercury Mayhem, and the Handsome Devils.
In the new millennium, Tim moved on to solo work; and in 2007, debuted his original album Music from Earth, available from iTunes and CD Baby. Tim performed, recorded
and mixed the entire album himself. He received recognition from the Kramp & Adler Morning Show as a promising local artist and his first single, All My Colors was played on WLUM 102.1. Tim released his second original extended play album, Between the Sun & the Moon, to iTunes and Amazon
on January 1, 2011. The album was partially recorded, mixed, and
mastered at Taylor Studios in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is a mix of
alternative rock and pop with a hint of retro and a splash of World
Music. Five songs from the album were recently featured on the Kenosha 91.1 FM Noon Tunes program. In 2012 Tim released Strange Horses, a retrospective live and remixed CD containing previously unreleased material.  He also collaborated with local hip hop group Classy Thugs on a positive, though provoking, single-- soon to be released.  In 2013 a vocal collaboration with South African DJ Maxume brought forth a hybrid remix of U2's Where the Streets have no Name available on itunes.
Tim has finished  his first Christian CD, Above the Snakeline, released on10/31/2013 and is booking shows to promote the album. If you ask others
about Tim, they will say he is original, from the heart, memorable,
unique, a great song writer, a great person, and just what Indie Music
needs. His live entertainment vision is to present
an eclectic multi- sensory experience to his audiences, always leaving
them wanting more.
