The "similar" artists above has the hoarse voice or the style in common. SplitVision & GreatGrandpa sounds like no one else. The Duo SplitVision & GreatGrandpa was formed in june 2011. Today SplitVision will perform with SplitVisionFamily a constellation with 8 persons including back up vocals. The band can perform as a Duo -with live acoustic or recorded backgrounds and percussion - or the whole SplitVisionFamily on a larger stage. The already recorded CD with GreatGrandpa will be released spring 2014 as well as a new video. More songs has been written since then.
SplitVision had never sang officially before. She used to play the drums and write songs for her band Split Vision Band .
After she discovered that the government withheld information about her dad - she started making the song Identity searching her roots.
GreatGrandpa, 77, with long experience as a drummer and as a musician for decades in all genres from jazz and onward, who started a career as a producer at 70 years of age, thought the song should be recorded.
A duo was formed SplitVision & GreatGrandpa and now they're soon releasing their first CD "What's The Matter With U?" with 13 tracks during spring 2014. Different styles: Native Chant Reggae, Native Reggae Pop, Punk Rock, Bluegrass Calypso, Reggae Pop, Grunge, New Orleans', Jazz Afro Reggae, Samba Reggae (in Spanish with Rap), Blues Pop, Ballad, Roots Reggae DUB on the first CD.
