SplitVision from Sweden had never sang officially before. She used to play the drums and write songs for her band Split Vision.
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 2013. 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.
SplitVision is working on new songs for the next CD. So far the duo has released 9 tracks ( two tracks release january 8 for download) for digital download, worldwide.
Slowly but constant the curves are rising on the internet. A lot of good words from fans, colleges, promoters, Dj's etc has come their way. SplitVision & GreatGrandpa gained top positions locally and where listed 21 000 globally until 1 of february 2013. A huge error on the reverbnation site when it was reprogrammed resulted in popular artists with top position dropping drastically on the charts - please don't pay attention to this error programming since the Duo are rapidly gaining fans and popularity.
This is a low budget high quality production with skilled guest artists, carefully picked for each song, if needed.
SplitVision & GreatGrandpa are played on many internet streaming webbradio stations. Earbits, Lastfm, Spotify, Myspace radio,Face Book, reverbnation, Google, Youtube, Sound Cloud, Coast2Coast and many more.
www.KarmaReggaeShow.com by Djay Steve has sponsored the Duo with Positi feedback and plays on the station. Even Rick Busby www.finalfrontierradio.com through Jiggy Jag has interviewed the duo live via Skype and played their songs with very positive feedback "Theese guys from Sweden - They just blowed me out".

There is only the Cover missing and some administrative work before CD release - hopefully by spring 2013.
