SUSTO: On Tour 2019
With a rock-rooted sound that doesn’t shy away from radio-ready hooks, SUSTO keeps listeners engaged by refusing to occupy an easily defined space. Produced by Ian Fitchuck (Kacey Musgraves, Ruston Kelly) and featuring key input from Osborne’s longtime creative sounding board Wolfgang Zimmerman, Ever Since I Lost My Mind defiantly experiments with synth embellishments, Latin heart, guileless folk, and more. Osborne’s mellow vocals comfort without losing the ability to surprise––delicate croons, growls, and occasional screams take turns.
Support is from the wonderful Judy Blank:
If blue-eyed songstress Judy Blank would tell you she grew up in some onehorse-
town in Louisiana, you’d probably believe her. But nothing could be
further from the truth. Hailing from Utrecht, The Netherlands, the 24-year-old
singer-songwriter is not afraid fuse musical genres, influenced by several
pilgrimages across the southern United States. On her new LP Morning Sun, a
70’s inspired coming-of-age confessional that she recorded with Chris Taylor
(Rival Sons, Dylan LeBlanc, The Wood Brothers), she effortlessly mixes
traditional folk and groovy americana. From the green-eyed soul of her hit
single "Mary Jane" to the jagged-edged ballad of "Tangled Up in You", she
can hit all the notes. Even living legends praise her songwriting skills; her
song ‘1995’ was called a favorite by none other than Sir Elton John.
'This girl sang some songs that made my heart drum. If she
was anywhere around me, I’d go see her ev’ry night.'
