SUSTO (Charleston, SC) is the latest project from former Sequoyah Prep School (SPS) frontman Justin Osborne. After a decade of touring and recording together, SPS went their separate ways in Feburary of 2013. With no outlet for his writing, Osborne left for Havana, Cuba in search of inspiration. After several months of playing and recording with Cuban musicians, Osborne returned to Charleston, SC where he teamed up with friend and songwriter Johnny Delaware to refine the songs written in Cuba. With help from friend and producer Wolfgang Zimmerman (Brave Baby), Osborne and Delaware were able to record what songs Osborne had from Cuba as well as several new songs written in Charleston.
As the project began to gain speed in the studio, Osborne and Delaware recruited Taylor McCleskey (drums) and Eric Mixon (bass) to complete SUSTO’s lineup. In early 2014, after months of work, SUSTO’s time in the studio had resulted in a dark yet light hearted blend of Americana songs that tell the story of Osborne’s life over the last few years.
SUSTO’s debut self titled album was released digitally April 1, 2014. The band will be touring in June and July of 2014 with an extensive North American schedule.
SUSTO’s debut album can be accessed through all major digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify, etc.). Tour dates can be found at www.susto.bandcamp.com
