About Us

Writing Recording Producing Performing

It is an endless process that can't be rushed.  The inspiration is all around us but sometimes happenstance creates the spark that ignites a revolution.

Technology has changed the way we listen and communicate. The tools are everywhere but the art is knowing how to use them.

New releases coming in 2022 from NOWCAT, Skeeter Johnson, Hightides & the Jellyfish, and 6Sigma.


Performing, composing, arranging, recording, producing, igniting.  The spark and the glue.      

For the past 47  years, we've refined our technique and musicianship. The result of our labor is  a string of successful performances, and album releases, along with audience and critical acclaim.      

The debut international release contains 5 songs recorded with Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo.  Shelia and I kicked out 5 songs in 24 hours at Joe's home studio, Joe's Garage.  We had a great time.
Nowcat is looking for touring date and to perform at festivals.  
THRamp is the latest artist to join MUSICRD.com. The power trio adds a distinct sound to the label.  THRamp is saving Rock and Roll one soul at a time.  Look for the american debut single Fall 2021.

Nowcat finished final touches on the new single, "Suppers on Sunday" from the EP release, Sandsnatchers.  The duo of guitarist and singer songwriter, Richard D'Anjolell and Shelia Bell, percussionist, vocalist, songwriter live in Oak Island, NC. Oak Island, Southport, and the whole Southeastern North Carolina music scene continues to grow with the formation of many new performing acts and the opening of new spaces for live entertainment.  The Mullett, Moore Street Market, Tiki Tavern, Dry StreetPub, Southport Tap & Cellar, American Fish Company among other have open their doors as new music venues.  Nowcat, Hightides and the Jellyfish, Twitch Constantly, and Skeeter Johnson and the Fallen Horsemen are bands from Oak Island that are recording new albums as well as many others.
