#6 In2 The Blue

...and so it goes. The Great America 6 hour torture show was done. I only say this because five sets is a challenge when you battle the loudspeakers and TVs with stage volume. Yes, they never turned the sound down. Really. In order not to sound like a rant and to keep this post on target, you can refer to this article which is pretty much right on http://goo.gl/C0eWGq (Digital Music News). Yes, that was a one time show. I can no longer support organizations that exploit musicians. Speaking of Apple....

Okay, this might get a little bit ranty.

#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming. Well, they weren't at first but now have agreed to pay musicians $.002 per stream. If you are wondering why I do not have an iTunes radio station btw it is because there has to be a certain amount of sales. It is however hard to get sales if nobody hears the music, but I digress. It's just getting harder for indies to make a buck these days selling music or even playing shows. For some reason people are ready to fight you when you asked to be paid for your work and your time. This is indeed the devil's world as of late.

On a different note (ranty part done for now), The new electronic blues single In2 The Blue will be released within days. The sound is kind of like squishing the White Album Beatles into a tube with U2, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and some Dub samples. This single will mark the stepping back into the underlying Alt/Christian realm of previous singles. Really excited about this one! It was a contender for the Snakeline album but was not finished at the time. Lend me your ears, take a listen, and buy a copy HERE.

Rajah That!

The Rhinocerotic show was a success and a lot of fun. I believe this was one of the few times that I was actually paid in the last 20 yrs. Pretty cool to see the old crowd and work with everybody again.
Rajah That! Was released on Memorial Day 2015. It is a groove driven kaleidoscope with a belly dancing, dubstep, goth, Bollywood, dance vibe. Pretty wild stuff to start out the spring.  Heading into summer we have a big show at SixFlags Great America playing their Live & Local concert series. We will be playing past hits from previous albums with more of a dance vibe and a few acoustic covers throughout the day. We will be releasing a brand new single called Into the Blue! This tune will take us back to the electro-groove of the Above the Snakeline CD with a Depeche Mode/U2 vibe. Sign up on the email list @ www.timkorry.com for up to date info.

Lastly, all songs will be available for purchase directly from www.timkorry.com including exclusive songs not available elsewhere! Buying direct will be a much easier process than working through CDBaby or some other MP3 sites. This will also assure that your money goes to support the music and not giving a percentage to a large corporation who then gives the musician a portion. Yep….unlike U2, I cannot get an Apple endorsement. 

So, I’d ask you to consider the “buy local” and “support indie” sort of approach. Your support helps us to keep moving forward and releasing quality sounds!

2 Daze in May.

After the big release of the Celtic Country song Warmer in Dublin, I started working on the next single which is in an entirely different direction. Just as I've said in previous posts, there will be a new single of widely varying genres released every month this year. We have and will be exploring Dubstep, Alt-Christian, Celtic Country, Instrumental Soundtrack, Indie Rock, Blues Dance Rock, and more. Sign up on the email list to get free exclusive songs and to keep up with the latest news.

May will signal the release of the World/Dubstep fusion song Rajah That, and the final Rhinocerotic reunion. This will be two drastically different musical events mixing the past with the future. It will be a very interesting month musically speaking.

News is out that our website partner Bandzoogle is now paired with Nielsen Soundscan. This means that our future progress will really be supported if you visit the site, listen to, and buy songs. This will support our experimentation into the dimensions of sonic expression. Please tell a friend to stop by the site and take a listen. We've got a good multi-genre vibe cooking for everyone here.

We are currently looking for people interested in being a part of and spreading the sounds of timkorry.com on a global level. Social networking, word of mouth, guerrilla marketing, etc... These people will also be on the front lines and included in some of the inner workings of this group.  Contact us at music@timkorry.com if you are interested.

Warmer in Dublin - Celtic Country


It's been a long time coming and it's finally here! The first Celtic Country song from Liza & Tim Korry was released on St. Patrick's Day 2015. Combining elements of old school and modern country with an Irish flair, Warmer in Dublin provides three minutes of "island escapism" (Ireland that is).

It's like this: 

Jimmy Buffet, Steve Earle, and Alan Jackson walk into an Irish pub....

The song was written and arranged by Liza Korry. The music was written and played by Tim Korry. Banjo, mandolin, steel guitar, slide guitar, the spoons, some rockin drums and more were used to construct this unusual country tune. Some amazing mixing and mastering work came straight out of Nashville by way of Tim Scott Productions. This guy is fantastic at what he does and has worked with George Strait, Leann Rimes, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Sara Evans, and Aaron Lewis to name a few. We are definitely looking forward to working with him again!

This song is now the third single released this year. There will be many more to come but this one is really worth spreading the word about. Please help us out and tweet, FB, whatever you do on social media and give us a shout. Your support keeps us going. Thank you! TPK 

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity
Through belief in the threeness
Through confession of the Oneness
Towards the creator. - St. Patrick

From the First Day 'til Now Single #2


Free download if you share with a friend!

The second single of the year is out! It was actually written by an apostle. Ya, I’ve never had a co-writer quite of this caliber… This indie rock song was taken straight out of Phil 1 in the bible. It was initially a song candidate for the Above the Snakeline album but did not make the final song list. It has been updated and reworked a bit for the full sonic experience.
So, three months into the year and we’ve only released two songs… Yes, I did say that a single will be released every month.  The new alt country song, Warmer in Dublin, will be released on St. Patrick’s Day! Mixed and mastered in Nashville! In the meantime, check out Riverside & From the First Day ‘til Now.

Riverside - Single#1

Buy on iTunes or CDBaby!


This blues/dance/rock single was originally released as the hidden track on Music From Earth from 2006. It has been remastered and specially released to mark the beginning of a year filled with multi-genre releases by Tim Korry.

Slip into those bluesy gospel shoes and head on down to the river to wiggle your feet in the muddy groove.

SINGLES - Not the Movie from the 90's

As things develop in the new year, and they are, I'm thinking of new ways to approach the "music scene". It would seem that the music "seen" would be the way to go over the traditional playing of corner bar dumps. Yea, every towns got 'em. Free beer is fine when you're 22 but it doesn't cut it for much longer. Making quality youtube videos will be a focus this year so to speak.. (video... focus...anyway...) Right now I'm developing an unusual concept for a Door's song with a dubstep style. Surprisingly it jives really well. Yea, you read it right (Wait til the next paragraph with the country part). Converging on some visuals that compliment the music has been a goal for awhile. You know, people used to dig music videos... Why not keep it artsy? There's enough flash, glamor, and other foolish stuff in videos of late.

We are currently working with a very talented Nashville engineer on our first country song. The working title is 'Warmer in Dublin'. It is a song written by Liza Korry and composed by yours truly. Not your average country tune... Think of mixing Jimmy Buffett, Van Morrisson, & U2. Looking forward to getting this one out there and we will with your support! There will be a single released every month vs the album release style. Trying something new this year. Multi-genre full sonic barrage on the way...
We are booking for shows and always looking for new opportunities. Stay tuned!
