A Blurred City Sight's imaginative, Chicago skyline-inspired, debut album is nearing completion. Join us!


We are an independent alternative/pop/rock band called A Blurred City Sight. For the past (almost) two years, we've been piecing together our debut album, The Light Before the Day. This album reflects our love for the city of Chicago, which served as inspiration on the summer nights we spent jamming out together, looking across the lights of the skyline, writing these songs. It also explores a variety of other colorful topics. We can tell you, these songs come from our hearts and we CANNOT WAIT to share them with you.

So far, we've been able to create some high-quality recordings for free thanks to producer Sam Fell from Painted Face, LLC. Now that everything is recorded, we need to master it. This must be done in a professional studio, as it is the final step to ensuring a quality you would hear on the radio or TV. We won't bore you with the technical details...Overall, mastering brings the album to a commercial level so that it can compete with other recordings. Every quality album you've heard has been mastered in some way.

We need about 900 dollars to master this album and make it the best it can be. Considering how little we've spent on recording so far...that's not much at all. But we need your help. Here on Kickstarter, we're shooting for $750 or more! We'll fund the rest out of our own pockets if we can, but only our fans can make this album a reality. We're both humbled and excited by this fact and we're excited for you all to join with us, become our record label, receive some great rewards, and make this dream a reality for the world to hear.
