Blurred Vision biography
“If you know your history, then you will know where you’re coming from”
Bob Marley poignantly sang those words which apply so aptly to the story of this celebrated band.
From escaping war torn Iran with his family as a young child to being displayed in museums around the world with the likes of Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Pink Floyd and The Beatles, the story of Sepp Osley and his band Blurred Vision is as inspiring as the music they set out to make.
Launched in 2010, the then Canadian based band made up of Sepp Osley, brother Sohl Osley and drummer Ben Riley shot to world wide acclaim and attention when their remake of Pink Floyd’s iconic anthem “Another Brick In The Wall pt.2” became an “international phenomenon” as written by the Toronto Star and Associated Press at the time. Dubbed “Hey Ayatollah Leave Those Kids Alone” the band set out to create a musical message of support for the youth of Iran, who were gripped in protests against the oppressive regime of the
Ayatollahs, and in turn gained the backing and endorsement of Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters and created what would later be honoured as one of the “top 100 most influential pop videos of all time” (MTV Europe).
The group went on to become the only Canadian act invited to perform at The Beatles 50th Anniversary Concert in New York City, performed at World Pride in Toronto for a crowd of over 2 million people and released their debut album ‘Organised Insanity’ in 2015 to critical acclaim
working with legendary producer Terry Brown. The band were also honoured as ambassadors of NYC charity WhyHunger, joining legends Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Tom Morello, the John Lennon Estate and others in the fight against hunger and poverty.
Since then, and lead by the vision of front man and co-founder Sepp Osley who had now moved to London UK, personnel changes were made in 2018 and the trio became a quartet making them now a predominantly British group. Joining Sepp are Britons Jake Bradford Sharp on drums, Bentley Levy on bass, and Jake Libretto on guitars.
