Originating from Athens Georgia, sursievision is a dynamic genre-blending band combining aspects of funk, blue-eyed soul and electronica. Although the band has undergone several line-up changes over the years, the foundation has always remained the same: power duo Star Scott (vocals, composition) and Shannon Sausser (drums, vocals). Following the footsteps of Athens'greats, such as The B-52s and R.E.M., sursievision has been called "Athens' next break-out band" (Rock 100.7, Athens, GA).
Sursievision is gaining notoriety from others as well; they are sponsored by FireFly vodka and recently licensed a track to the cartoon, "Killer Rock From Space." Their 2010 released full length album, "Personal Legend," was mixed by 6 time Grammy nominated, Graham Marsh at CeeLo Green's studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Be on the lookout for the funky new sounds and energy coming from this band on the rise.
