Casiotone For The Painfully Alone

is the musical solo-project of ex film school student Owen Ashworth of Redwood City, California. On his first album «Answering Machine Music» he used exclusively an army of casio keyboards supported by slow, frank lyrics. On his second outing Ashworth widened his musical horizon and added more analog instruments and an overall more organic sound.
