SUSTO began as the project of Justin Osborne, who after being worn out from over ten years of writing and making music dissolved his band Sequoyah Prep School and took a trip to Cuba. The voyage served as a catalyst for the creation of SUSTO. After releasing their first self-titled album in 2014, SUSTO relied heavily on live performances for exposure. The meaning of the word SUSTO is derived from a cultural illness amongst Latin American cultures, a condition of suffering following a traumatic experience.
