VIDEO: Advance Base(Owen Ashworth) – Summer Music



Advance Base is the new project by Chicago, Illinois singer songwriter, and producer, Owen Ashworth (formerly Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).

A Shut-In’s Prayer is Ashworth’s first full-length release in over three years, and his first under the name Advance Base. Recorded at home and in piano practice rooms at the Chicago Public Library, A Shut-In’s Prayer is an intimate collection of deliberately crafter but decidedly lo-fi torch songs, waltzes and ballads.Watch the new video by Philip Hodges for opening track, ‘Summer Music’ here:


It is a different sound than one might expect from the dude from Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, but Ashworth’s keen ear for melody and idiosyncratic skill as a lyricist have only improved in recent years, pushing his memorable song-writing in all new directions. At age 35, Ashworth has a lot of music left in him, and he’s just getting started again.

A Shut-In’s Prayer is out now on Tomlab.

One thought on “%1$s”

  1. I have the record. Interesting indeed, although unmistakably Owen. I wore my Casiotone For The Painfully Alone tee shirt one day at SXSW this year, and had a stream of people saying hello as a result, including someone who wrote down the name of Advance Base for me. There’s lots of love and enthusiasm out there for this man
