    Brittain Ashford starred in the 2017 Broadway hit, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, as well as Dave Malloy's Off-Broadway song-cycle, Ghost Quartet.
    She’s put out two albums with her own band, Prairie Empire, and has just released a new solo album of re-tooled show tunes, "run through a David Lynch filter," called Drama Club. Of Ashford's voice, The New York Times said: “Delicate and defiant... the kind of husky ethereality that can stop you in your tracks.”

    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."  .
