Surviving the Music Industry

Jul 16, 2019

Weird highway moments, rescheduling, and producing with Justin Osborne of Susto and writer/producer Casey Brown. Justin popped in after releasing Ever Since I Lost My Mind to talk about the record and current life. Then writer/producer Casey Brown talks life after school producing for Russel Dickerson, Laura Story, Megan & Liz, Secret Nation, and more.


Justin Osborne is the frontman of Susto. The name Susto describes an intense fear understood as a condition of the soul––an ongoing, spiritual panic attack. As Justin and I dive into his latest project, Ever Since I Lost I Mind, it's apparent susto is not just a name but an identity to the music. We talk highway finds, songwriting and his uniqueness in songwriting, and talk through some of our favorite tracks. Follow everything about Susto at and follow him @sustoisreal.


Casey Brown is one of the newest signees to Nashville based publishing company Creative Nation. Rightly so especially after the massive success of Russell Dickerson's no. 1 "Yours" that Casey co-wrote and produced. Casey co-wrote seven additional tracks on Russell's record. Then, Brown flexed different muscles and produced the entire record. His wins aren’t limited to his career-launching work with Dickerson: Megan+Liz, Building 429, Sidewalk Prophets, Francesca Battistelli, Finding Favour, Tauren Wells, and many more artists spanning multiple genres have recorded Brown’s thoughtfully crafted songs. Casey takes us from life from Connecticut and Texas to finding his flavor of musical tastes in college in Nashville, TN. Making friends and long-lasting connections in school. He admits that you get what you put into school, but it's outside of class that really matters. We talk producing records, working with artists, and finding your steps in life.
