“supremely chill — in a worldly, self-questioning sort of way” –Rolling Stone Country

“a restless rock number…It’s fuzzy and fun, the kind of groovy roots-rock that’s sure to please fans of groups like Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats” –Paste

“a showcase for frontman Justin Osborne’s masterful songwriting” –Premier Guitar

SUSTO performed on “CBS This Morning” this past Saturday, April 20; watch the band play “Homeboy,” “If I Was,” and “Weather Balloons.” The songs are from their latest album, Ever Since I Lost my Mind, out now on Rounder Records; stream the album HERE.

The record was produced by Grammy-award winning producer Ian Fitchuk (Album of the Year for Kacey Musgraves’ Golden Hour) with input from frontman Justin Osborne’s longtime creative partner Wolfgang Zimmerman.

SUSTO has made a name for themselves through frequent touring and performances at major U.S. festivals including Hangout, Austin City Limits, Stagecoach, AmericanaFest, Pickathon and Hopscotch. The band has opened for The Lumineers, Band of Horses and The Head and The Heart, and made their television debut on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” last year.

Osborne first began writing songs as a teen in South Carolina, performing with numerous bands before forming SUSTO. During a self-imposed hiatus, he moved to Havana, Cuba and befriended local musicians who encouraged and inspired him to start writing music again. “It was a weird moment. I just had to finally quit keeping one foot out of music and dive in,” he explains. The band’s name, SUSTO, is derived from a Latin American term that can be roughly translated as “panic attack.” “That deep fright was something I was experiencing, and songwriting felt like it was helping me cure it,” adds Osborne. “I can lose my mind on stage sometimes––I will break down and cry or have to keep myself from doing it––I just feel so incredibly lucky.”
