American indie musician Tim Kasher is known for his work with Cursive and The Good Life, as well as his more recent solo output. He began his musical career in 1993 with the formation of the Slowdown Virginia, a hugely influential group in the Omaha scene that would later birth Saddle Creek Records and a host of related bands. In the spring of 1995, Kasher formed Cursive with his former Slowdown Virginia bandmates Matt Maginn and Steve Pedersen with Clint Schnase on drums. The band's debut LP, Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes, came in 1997. Cursive's reputation grew with the release of Domestica (2000) and The Ugly Organ (2003). Their latest release is 2012's I Am Gemini.
Originally envisioned as a solo project, Kasher launched The Good Life in 2000 with the release of Novena on a Nocturn. The Good Life soon branched out to include new members, attracting a greater fan base through the release of Album of the Year in 2004 and Help Wanted Nights in 2007. The Good Life's most recent LP is Everybody's Coming Down (2015). As a solo performer, Kasher released his first LP under his own name, The Game of Monogamy, in 2010. His most recent solo release is 2017's No Resolution.
