SplitVision & GreatGrandpa / Bio

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.
