First/Last-Tim Korenich

May 23, 2014

“Born a baby, Tim Korenich has been growing into a slightly longer baby and uses his child-like fascination and sensitivity to his advantage as a musician and writer. He has released several records with his band The Beauregards, and is in the process of a releasing a solo record comprised of music he recorded for short films.”

Tim Korenich is the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Pittsburgh-based alt-rock outfit The Beauregards. He strikes out on his own with his first solo single, ‘We Can Start Again’. I want to thank him for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • Blood Sugar Sex Magik”, The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
  • Your last album bought?
  • Either “Hard to Find”, American Analog Set, or “The Bynars” self-titled album.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • A tie between “The Best of the Impressions”, and the “For Carnation’s” self-titled album. Throw Death Cab’s “We Have the Facts” in there, too.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • I don’t really have one.
  • First concert attended?
  • The Red Hot Chili Peppers in Columbus.
  • Last concert?
  • Jeff the Brotherhood.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Anytime that I’ve seen the Poison Control Center. Those guys are incredible performers. Really nice, too.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • That Jeff the Brotherhood show was really disappointing. They didn’t seem to really care. Toward the end they said they’re playing a few more and going to bed. No encore. It left a lot to be desired.
  • Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • Pittsburgh’s a major city that has a real blue-collar vibe to it. There’s a strong work ethic and an honesty to the people that live in the area. I love it here, and on the rare occasion we do play out of town gigs, it makes me proud to say we’re from Pittsburgh.

Thanks, Tim. Awesome seeing you finding your voice as a solo artist. Not that I don’t dig The Beauregards at all, it’s just very cool to hear different aspects from a musician.
