SUSTO is a southern-folk/indie-americana band who write ballads delivered with a whiskey-soaked growl filtered through gritty, swirling production. Band leader and wordsmith Justin Osborne's conversational lyrical style was initially inspired by the straight-forward speech of locals in his hometown in rural South Carolina. Osborne continued to take cues from locals, finding himself transfixed by the "fearless storytelling" of Trova Musicians while living in Havana, Cuba. The result is a collection of brooding tunes rife with dark textures and acute self-discovery.
