SUSTO is the brainchild of Justin Osborne. It was born out of collaboration between Osborne & various colleagues including but not limited to Johnny Delaware, Wolfgang Zimmerman, Nicholas Scott Woodley, Jordan Hicks & Camilo Miranda. These collaborations took place between 2011 & 2013 in Charleston & Havana.

Early writing & recording for SUSTO began in late 2011.

In early 2013 Osborne began performing solo in South Carolina & Cuba under the name of SUSTO. By August of that year SUSTO was performing as a full band. In addition to Osborne covering rhythm guitar, keyboards, & lead vocals _ this line-up included Taylor McCleskey on drums, Eric Mixon on Bass and Johnny Delaware on lead guitar & background vocals.

By early 2014 the debut self titled album was finalized & subsequently released by Osborne & Delaware's label Peninsula Records on April Fool's Day (04/01/2014).

After an extensive North American solo tour (Summer 2014) in support of SUSTO's debut album, Osborne returned to Charleston where he formed a new live band including Gordon Keiter on drums, Matt Lohan on bass and background vocals, & Corey Campbell on lead guitar.

The band maintains a moderate tour schedule & it is rumored that a second album with the werking title "& I'm Fine Today" is now in production; no timeframe has been established regarding it's release.


Denver based Esmé Patterson, founder and former member of Paper Bird, has been performing solo since her break with the indie-folk band in 2012. Described by the New York Times as“wiry and candid, backed by arrangements that roll along the folk-country borderline,”her first album gained attention with a feature of fellow Coloradan Nathaniel Rateliff. Two years later, Esmécollaborated with Shakey Graves on the hit song “Dearly Departed”, performing the track on The Late Show with David LettermanandConan. The singer-songwriter’s most recent album We Were Wild earned the attention of numerous national outlets, and opened the door to aNPR Tiny Desk concert in February. Most recently, Esmécomposed original music for the Netflix series Gypsy, which was released in June of this year.


Sam Doores is a New Orleans-based musician who plays in The Deslondes and also performs as a solo singer-songwriter.
