Tim Kasher

Tim Kasher (born August 19, 1974) is a musician from Omaha, Nebraska, and is the frontman of indie rock groups Cursive and The Good Life, both of which are on the Omaha based record label Saddle Creek Records. Prior to those bands, Kasher was in a band called Slowdown Virginia. He also made a brief appearance with the Omaha band Commander Venus and The March Hares. Kasher has a very close relationship with Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. They grew up in Nebraska together, went to the same Catholic high school, Creighton Prep. In the Bright Eyes song "Nothing Gets Crossed Out," Oberst sings, "Tim, I've heard your album and it's better than good," referring to the album Black Out by Kasher's band, The Good Life, released in 2002 on Saddle Creek Records. Furthermore, Oberst later sang backup on the song "Staying Alive," from Cursive's 2003 effort The Ugly Organ. Kasher temporarily disbanded Cursive after the departure of guitarist Steve Pedersen (who left to pursue a law degree at Duke University and now leads the Saddle Creek band Criteria). Kasher married and moved to Portland, Oregon.
