SUSTO & Esmé Patterson Announce North American Tour
“[Osborne] has since carried the earnest, psychedelia-tinged, alt-country project to great heights.” – The Denver Post (SUSTO)
“A singer with roots in folk music and [an] album that stretches into the world of gritty rock.” – NPR Music (Esmé Patterson)
Critically acclaimed artists SUSTO (pronounced “soos-toh”) and Esmé Patterson have confirmed a 33 city co-headline tour with shows in major markets across the U.S. and in Toronto. The two artists will also play separate headline shows throughout the run. See the dates below for more information. The coast to coast tour begins in October and spans 11 weeks to close out 2017. Notable stops include The Roxy in Los Angeles, Bowery Ballroom in New York City, and The Basement East in Nashville (SUSTO only). Tickets go on-sale Friday, August 18th.
Charleston, SC based SUSTO, released their album & I’m Fine Today in early 2017. Of the record, PASTE writes “the rich narratives echo on a molecular level; Osborne’s voice bleeds sincerity alongside veteran accompaniment.” The band has been featured in Billboard, NPR Music, Rolling Stone and Relix, in addition to their national television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday. This year alone, SUSTO has headlined more than 95 shows, in addition to support tours with The Lumineers, The Head & The Heart, and a European tour in August and September with Band of Horses. The band’s single “Jah Werx” is currently at AAA radio.
Denver based Esmé Patterson, founder and former member of Paper Bird, has been performing solo since her break with the indie-folk band in 2012. Described by the New York Times as “wiry and candid, backed by arrangements that roll along the folk-country borderline,” her first album gained attention with a feature of fellow Coloradan Nathaniel Rateliff. Two years later, Esmé collaborated with Shakey Graves on the hit song “Dearly Departed”, performing the track on The Late Show with David Letterman and Conan. The singer-songwriter’s most recent album We Were Wild earned the attention of numerous national outlets, and opened the door to a NPR Tiny Desk concert in February. Most recently, Esmé composed original music for the Netflix series Gypsy, which was released in June of this year.
