Advance Base is the melancholic soft rock recording 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 and drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted and nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. Listeners have described the warm, electronic sound of Advance Base as “lo-fi,” “depressed” and “weirdly uplifting.”

Run For Cover Records and Orindal Records released Animal Companionship, the third and most recent “studio” album by Advance Base, September 21, 2018. GoldFlakePaint and Various Small Flames both listed Animal Companionship among their favorite albums of 2018. Since then, Advance Base has released Wall of Tears & Other-Songs I Didn’t Write, a home-recorded collection of (mostly) country/Americana covers arranged for electronic instruments. He has also released Live at Home, a collection of mid-quarantine livestream concert performances and the closest representation of an Advance Base live set commercially available. A new single titled ”Little Sable Point Lighthouse” was released on March 31, 2022.
