SUSTO is an alt-country/progressive Americana band that was founded in 2013 by Justin Osborne. The band released its self titled debut album on April 1, 2014, which was followed by a North American tour. On April 1, 2015, a live album featuring Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses was made available from the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame. A large U.S. tour is being scheduled, and the band has secured notable upcoming slots including Columbia, S.C.'s Famously Hot New Year as direct support for Miss Lauryn Hill, Savannah Stopover, SXSW, and Stagecoach. Support tours for several well-known artists are in the works.
Currently, SUSTO is in the process of recording its second album, "& I'm Fine Today," which is expected to be released in 2016.
Esme Patterson (often written Esmé Patterson) from Denver, Colorado started her solo career in 2012. She is also a founding member of the band Paper Bird.
