1st Base Runner
1st Base Runner is the immersive project from Texas multi-instrumentalist and producer Tim Husmann. The visionary artist draws on shoe-gaze, nostalgic 80's dark wave, and an array of analog synthesizers to create powerful songs that carry the weight of raw emotion and hard-won wisdom. The EP 'Stay Gold' slated for April features two new members: enigmatic Austin-based drummer Adam Byram and bassist Kevin K. Rowe. The trio now completes Husmann’s vision for the project, backed by industry giant Dilly Gent of Son&Heir Productions as permanent project Creative Director. Stephen James Moore of Independent Music Promotions in Vancouver, BC, adds exceptional PR expertise for the band and Husmann's newly created indie label, Souvenir Sound. In just two years, Husmann has released more EP’s and stunning music videos than most bands do in a decade. In addition to national college radio play, including Austin’s 98.9 KUTX, there is no doubt that the 1st Base Runner project will continue to turn heads in 2023 with a Loyalty Firm showcase at SXSW’s Velveeta Room on the night of March 18th at 9pm.
