Krista Baroni is an American singer-songwriter born and raised in the quiet Massachusetts suburbs, who currently calls the city of Providence, Rhode Island her home.
An artist with two full length, independently released albums under her belt; Krista released her sophomore album in 2015 (The Alabaster Girl), to critical praise and national recognition.
To create the Laurel Canyon singer-songwriters of the 70's inspired sound she was looking for, the songwriter turned to producer and owner of Dirt Floor Recording, Eric Lichter.
Tucked away in the woods of Connecticut, (in space with a 'Big Pink' or 'Shangri La' studio vibe) the kindred spirits quickly got down to business and started recording what would become the raw, vulnerable, and painfully personal ten track record.
Howling electric guitar solos and melancholy Mellotron (performed by Eric Lichter) are a few of the prominent sounds that color the album with vintage tones, while still allowing the songwriters delicate acoustic guitar, emotive vocals and poetic lyrics to take center stage.
Victor Infante of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette called it “the most beautiful album I've heard in a long time." And Boston blog Red Line Roots said "Warm textures, great songwriting, and a timeless quality define Baroni’s latest effort. This record just scratches the surface of how deep this songwriter’s talent runs."
A seasoned touring professional; Krista has performed extensively throughout the Northeast and Southeast U.S and concluded her first European tour in May of 2016. In the past, she has been privileged to open for many notable acts including; Mark Erreli; Ari Hest and Willy Mason.
