In 2013, singer and songwriter Justin Osborne moved to Havana, Cuba to study anthropology and found himself immersed in the music scene there, strongly influenced by local musicians who played in the Trova style and Havana’s Confessionalist poetry movement. Returning home, in 2013, he founded the band SUSTO, drawing inspiration from his musicial discoveries in Cuba along with the homegrown music scene in Charleston. Osborn named his band after a medical syndrome that’s specific to Latin American culture and roughly translates as panic attack and invited musicians including Johnny Delaware (guitar, piano), Marshall Hudson (drums), Jordan Hicks (bass), Jenna Desmond (bass) and Corey Campbell (keyboard and guitar). The band released their self titled debut album in 2014 and have a new EP coming out in May of 2016.
