News: Dear John – Concert For War Child UK Live Album Celebrates John Lennon On His 80th Birthday



Originally recorded live in concert last year ‘DEAR JOHN – CONCERT FOR WAR CHILD UK’ will receive official digital release on 11th June 2021, with all proceeds going to the charity. 

The record features a number of legendary artists from across the globe who came together virtually to celebrate what would have been the 80th birthday of The Beatles icon: John Lennon. Pledging their support for the renowned charity and hoping to inspire change, the recording features stunning renditions of Lennon classics as performed by Sepp Osley and his band Blurred Vision, alongside an array of guest stars including Maxi Jazz (Faithless), KT Tunstall, John Illseley (Dire Straits), Nick VAN Eede (Cutting Crew), Gowan (Styx), Graham Gouldman (10CC), Mollie Marriot and many more.   

“I began reaching out to artists around the world who I respected and admired,” says Sepp. “Before I knew  it, an unbelievable roster of artists had signed up and were going to be a part of the 80th birthday  celebrations for our mutual hero and help us raise money for the charity so close to my  heart.”
