Casiotone for the Painfully Alone

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is the musical solo-project of musician Owen Ashworth (born 1977) of Redwood City, California. He started CFTPA after he dropped out of film-school in 1997. He has toured with other similar acclaimed indie artists like The Donkeys, The Papercuts, Cass McCombs, Kill Me Tomorrow, , The Dead Science, David Bazan, The Rapture, and Xiu Xiu.

The musical style is characterized by the use of electronically produced beats, cheap keyboards, and slow, frank lyrics. On Etiquette, Ashworth widened his musical horizon and added more analog instruments and an overall more organic sound.
