RAW... PURE... SONIC... "One of the more intelligent and interesting songwriters in the area. In a music scene filled with trivial tunes, hip hop fluff and cover performers, Tim gives us much more substance and originality."- Jeff Taylor, Taylor Studios

Biography

His Musical Past…

Tim Korry , originally from Miami, Florida, was born with music in his blood. Following in his Irish great grandfather’s fiddle- playing footsteps, Tim began mastering the guitar at the age of 17. In addition to continuous song writing, Tim also learned to play percussion instruments and bass guitar. His primary musical influences were Peter Gabriel, The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughan and U2. By the early 1990’s, Tim happened upon a few awesome Milwaukee musicians and co-founded the band Rhinocerotic. Adding his guitar, vocal and songwriting stylings to this psychedelic groove- rock band, they recorded two successful CD’s and developed a strong and faithful following-- opening locally for Green Day and Badfinger, and doing a post show for the Black Crowes. Tim and Rhinocerotic also played the Rock Stage at Milwaukee’s “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.

His Artistic Present…

In the 2000’s, Tim began to do solo work and in 2007, debuted his original album “Music from Earth”, available from iTunes and CD Baby. The album was a labor of love and gives a glimpse into the darkness of relationships and the light of self- discovery. 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. After more creative growth, Tim is up to his vocal cords in new songs and is about to release his new digital EP “Between the Sun and the Moon”, partially recorded, mixed and mastered at Taylor Studios in Wauwatosa, WI. “Between the Sun and the Moon” will be released in the near future (check back for details and where you can purchase the EP). He continues to entertain live with professional musicians who believe in his music, his vision and his message.

His Promising Future…

If you ask music performer and recording artist Tim Korry why he does this, he will simply say, “I am the music and the music is me. It comes from God. He tells me what to write and I write it.” 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 Milwaukee needs at Summerfest, State Fair and beyond”. Tim looks forward to beginning collaboration and production of a new music video very soon. His live entertainment vision is to present an eclectic multi- sensory experience to his audiences, always leaving them wanting more. His ultimate goal is to continue to write, record and perform his original music, and have as many people as possible hear it, listen to it; but above all… love it.
