Advance Base is the solo project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).

Using a two-handed arsenal of electric piano, Omnichord, samplers, effect pedals & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. The warm, electronic sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."

The debut Advance Base album, A Shut-In's Prayer (2012), was released in North America by Caldo Verde Records (CD) & Ashworth's own Orindal Records (vinyl/digital). Tomlab Records released special edition CDs & LPs for Europe & UK. MOJO Magazine included A Shut-In's Prayer on their top ten albums of 2012 list.

Nephew in the Wild, the second album by Advance Base, was released on August 21, 2015 by Orindal Records (US/AQ) & Tomlab Records (EU/UK). PopMatters named Nephew in the Wild the #1 Indie Pop Album of 2015.

Animal Companionship, the third & most recent album by Advance Base, was released September 21, 2018 by Run For Cover Records / Orindal Records. GoldFlakePaint & Various Small Flames both listed Animal Companionship among their favorite albums of 2018.

All available merchandise, including t-shirts, vinyl records, & MP3s can be purchased from Orindal Records & Bandcamp.

Advance Base is named after the Antarctic meteorological station & psychedelic death trap that nearly killed Admiral Richard E. Byrd during the winter of 1934.
