For this year’s “New Voices” Showcase, we will be featuring two regional musicians who are new to our monthly concert series, although Austin MacRae was part of an earlier showcase at our annual festival. Join us for a chance to hear some exciting new voices on this special double bill!


Stella Hill

Stella HillStella Hill is the Americana/Alt-Country songwriting collaboration of keyboardist Josh Massicot and violist Liz Ristow. The wife-and-husband duo write songs that pay homage to artists and music they love – Dylan, Christine McVie, Randy Newman, Norah Jones, Jeff Tweedy, Jackson Browne – with earnest lyrics, tight vocal harmonies, and richly textured arrangements that incorporate their classical training (the two met when they were students at the Eastman School of Music). The band has released two EPs, Stella Hill and North Star, and will be recording a third this winter. For this concert, Josh and Liz will be joined by Josh Pincus on guitar and Tim Isham on bass. You can find Stella Hill on Facebook and Instagram @stellahillmusic.
