Cousti came together in 2006 to write and record music based entirely on their own Individual tastes and influences. Drawing on a wealth of experience spanning over four decades from the mid 60s to the present day Cousti’s influences range from such early artistes as the Gratefull Dead and The Eagles to Jackson Brown, Jackie Lomax and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Taking us through the 70s, 80s and 90s with everyone from Eric Clapton to U2 to more lesser known artistes like Big House. Using this enormous library of knowledge Cousti paint their music on a broad canvas, from the emotional complexities of everyday life to songs such as the inspirational ‘Borderline,’ highlighting the plight of poor people in Mexico converging on the U.S border in search of a better life.
