Schizofonic Schizofonic-multiple musicality's blended together by two passionate writers and producers who each contribute their attributes to a work to create a final product. The origination of Schizofonic may have something to do with a higher power, but most certainly has everything to do with dedication, hard work, a bit of luck, and lot of love. As students, producers, and performers of music, unbeknownst to each other, Miraj Lee Saxton and Lunatick Rick spent countless hours on two different countries honing their craft. The problem was there always something missing in their music. Miraj was searching for a reliable guitarist, Rick was unable to find a singer that he could trust musically, and each was looking for a sound that could capture a variety of musical genres. It wasn't until an unknowing friend of each introduced them to a local dating site that they managed to find each other and hit it off. What is amazing is love came before the music for these two musicians. The duo instantaneously developed a bond first based on their love for each other, and secondly, out of that, a bond for their love of all music or what is otherwise known as a true musical movement. Now poised to break new ground in the world of music, Schizofonic, which features the sounds of Classic Rock, R&B, Reggae, Soul, and Alternative Funk aims their music at a worldly audience. Their goal to be unlike any artist before them, marketing their sound to an audience who replaced their artist CD's with a myriad of musical styles on their Ipods. Schizofonic will be limitless and ever growing, always-preserving purity of the commitment to their individual character and music, as well as to each other in love as a powerful loving force.
