SUSTO Stories: An intimate acoustic show with Justin Osborne of SUSTO

"In the early days of SUSTO I was touring almost completely solo, and the shows had a vibe that was very personal and there was an environment that encouraged me to tell the stories behind my songs. In the past two years I’ve been able to do tours like this in Europe, but haven’t had a chance to do something similar in the US. This tour is meant to remedy that, and to recreate that atmosphere I used to love so much, that intimacy with the audience. I’m looking forward to being there again, and seeing what comes out." Vulnerability and carnal desire go head-to-head on Elise Davis' The Token releasing September 9 on Make The Kill Records & Thirty Tigers.

Story and storyteller are one and the same. "I really can't express my vulnerable feelings – especially towards men I've had feelings about over the years," Elise confesses, "But, I have no trouble writing down painfully honest lyrics about it."

The Token puts a microscope on the southern dynamic between the sexes, and the Little Rock, AR native's inner turmoil, founded on her life's trajectory against a more traditional path. Elation and ache play a tug-of-war.

The Token is a rare piece of art born of risk and actually sounding like a risk that paid off. Elise Davis is putting her human condition in the forefront for all to hear; The Token delivers an unrelenting living contradiction, one born of her past while wrestling with the present.
