Tribute to Charlie Watts with Stepping Stone's Ben Hansen, at the Rosendale Theatre

The Rolling Stones were a foundational group in the early days of rock. There are some drummers that need to be studied in order to really understand the music, Charlie Watts, is one of those musicians and is one that should be remembered for years to come.

With appearances at big name clubs including the Blue Note Jazz Club, Brooklyn Bowl, and Webster Hall as well as extensive regional tours, Hickman has distilled her stage presence to smokey smooth perfection.

Stepping Stone's August artist of the month - Ella Ray Kondrat

Ella Ray's self-generated genre blends her background in Eastern European acapella arrangements with the beauty of Cat Power and the heartache of Mazzy Star.

Her preternatural voice sings over innovative acoustic chord structure as she details her romantic and sexual trials with painful memories of her past, vocalizing a strength which is tangible in her transformative music.

The Kingston NY-based performer completed her debut full-length album, Hum to Your Heart, which will be released in August of 2019.

Stepping Stone's July artist of the month - Stella Prince

17-year-old Stella Prince is a singer/songwriter whose goal is to bring an authentic, acoustic sound back to contemporary music. Stella writes songs from the heart, like her debut single "Before You Leave", which beautifully painted the feelings of loss and sadness. Her sophomore single, "Scared", also gave way to intense emotion, and both releases were critically acclaimed. Stella has performed at legendary venues such as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and The Bitter End in New York. She has recently been featured in publications such as Nashville Entertainment Weekly, Guitar Girl Magazine, and her songs have been recently played on WFUV out of New York and Radio Sobro in Nashville. A&R Factory Blog writes, "The maturity in Stella Prince's talent transcends her age, probably by decades. There's a true sense of authenticity and soul which is infused into her acoustic country folk-pop." Stella spends her time between Nashville and New York.

Photography & Graphic Design 


Laura Leigh is a fine artist and maker of organic watercolor paints based in New Paltz, NY. Laura blends the line between abstraction and landscape in her plein air oil paintings. After completing her BFA in Painting and Drawing from SUNY New Paltz in 2014, she has completed several artist's residency programs, many in national parks. Laura has created her own earth pigment library made from Ochre minerals and clay from around the country. She believes that painting is therapeutic and wants to help heal and connect people through creative expression.

"The Blue Show is a culmination of the more emotional work I created during the Pandemic, most of which were painted with blue pigments and sumi ink."

My paintings come from a soulful connection with nature and landscape. The work ranges from plein air landscapes to abstractions, and both mimic the recurrent forms and shapes found in nature and anatomy. I don't want to capture a natural scene with realism but rather with emotion. I create locally sourced natural earth pigments that I complete most of my paintings with. Utilizing the actual land as paint is a way to capture the primitive energy of the land in a tangible form. Reimagining land and body in an emotional and abstract way pushes the work into the metaphysical realm. My hope is to help heal others through creative expression and inspire others to create art in an uninhibiting and personal way.
