SUSTO has been given many labels - Americana, alt-country, southern folk, indie rock, even gospel and though none of these descriptions are inaccurate, they only provide part of the picture. Bandleader and songsmith Justin Osborne’s lyrics bring the full picture into view. He weaves catchy hooks into honest storytelling, utilizing gothic imagery, wry humor, and social commentary to convey his confessional tales. His gravelly, pitch- perfect voice is the ideal vehicle to bring these heartfelt expressions to the listener and the sincerity he exudes while performing is palpable. Pair that with perfectly nuanced folk-rock instrumentation, and SUSTO remains in a genre all its own.
