Blurred Vision is a 4-piece progressive/alternative Canadian rock band based in Toronto and New York. Founding members, brothers Sepp and Sohl Osley, joined by drummer Ben Riley, and keyboardist Joel Lightman, formed the group in 2010. Since then, Blurred Vision has been performing across their base cities of Toronto and New York and touring in the UK. Blurred Vision is best known for gaining the staunch and impressive support of rock legend & Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters, for their first official video release “Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone”, a remake of Pink Floyd's iconic "Another Brick In The Wall Part 2", which went viral. In February 2014, Blurred Vision was the only Canadian band invited to perform at the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of The Beatles arrival in America, playing to a sold out crowd at the historic Hudson Theatre in New York. Blurred Vision is set to release their debut album “Organized Insanity” later in 2014, produced by multi-platinum selling, Terry Brown. They have also completed the soundtrack and score for major feature film "Manhattan Undying" set for release in 2015.
