Susto is the band and stage name used by guitarist, singer and songwriter Justin Osborne from Charleston, South Carolina. Susto have, in recent years, made their mark with original and personal roots rock and americana. Susto’s third and latest album Ever Since I Lost My Mind came out on Rounder Records in early 2019. Justin Osborne began playing music and writing songs at the age of 14 and was in various bands in high school and at college. He tried to make a living at music, but in his mid-twenties he shelved his music dreams, went to Cuba and started a course in anthropology. Encouraged by his Cuban musician friends, he returned to USA and recorded his first album under the name Susto. His explanation is that susto in Latin American cultures means something along the lines of a panic attack. “It was that meaning of ‘susto’ that made me choose it. Personally, I had lost touch with my family and lost my direction,” explains Justin Osborne. Only Danish festival concert in 2019.
