JPR Live Session: Susto

Hot off the release of their new album, My Entire Life, Susto joined us to talk about the new record and how they stay positive during difficult times.

Front man Justin Osborne dealt with a lot over the last few years - a divorce, the struggle of keeping his band together during the pandemic and mental health and addictions issues affecting his family.

Both the name, Susto - which is a cultural illness primarily in Latin American cultures, described as a condition of suffering stemming from emotional trauma from witnessing traumatic experiences lived by other - and the album title My Entire Life, showcase that struggle, but with an eye towards healing. Osborne uses his music to process his emotions.

Hear him talk about all that, the making of My Entire Life and some new songs performed live in the JPR Steve Nelson Performance Studio in this JPR Live Session hosted by Danielle Kelly .

Dave Jackson curates the music on JPR's Rhythm and News Service, manages music staff and hosts Open Air, JPR's hand-picked house blend of music. He loves discovering great new music and sharing it.
Danielle earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2007 from Southern Oregon University and has remained in the Rogue Valley pursuing a performance career -- as a model, actor, and live performance vocalist. She began hosting Open Air on JPR's Rhythm & News Service in 2015.
