After years of working for labels, including KMG Christian music, Rick decided to go into business for himself and started Fuseic Music in 2003. He has since released four solo recordings, all featuring Adrian Belew on guitar, as well as the incredibly successful "Worship Jamz," the best-selling worship record in America with over 300,000 copies sold.

Altizer uses ACID Pro and Sound Forge on everything he records for Fuseic, including tracks for Johnny Cash, Russ Taff, and Steve Mason of Jars of Clay. He has twice been nominated for a Dove award by the Gospel Music Association.
