The Alabaster Girl


For her sophomore album, New England based singer/songwriter Krista Baroni had a vision - to record an album with a sound lifted straight from the 1970's Laurel Canyon songwriters.

By sheer luck, she happened to hear offhand about a studio called Dirt Floor, tucked away in the woods of Connecticut that was capturing recordings with that very same vibe.

Upon further investigation into the studio and meeting it's magical producer (and Dirt Floor owner) Eric Lichter, it became clear that this recording studio and songstress were a perfect fit. Following a successful crowd funding campaign, the kindred spirits quickly got down to business and started recording what would become the raw, vulnerable, and painfully personal ten track record The Alabaster Girl.

Howling electric guitar solos and melancholy Mellotron (performed by Eric Lichter) are a few of the prominent sounds that color the album with their vintage tones, while still allowing the songwriters delicate acoustic guitar, emotive vocals and poetic lyrics to take center stage.

Krista has toured the South East, and extensively in the North East regions of the United States. In the past has been privileged to open for many notable acts including; Mark Erreli; Ari Hest and Willy Mason.

The songwriter's influences range from her cherished 1960's and 70's songwriters' albums (by artists like Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens) to her favorite modern day folk hero's (Josh Ritter, Gillian Welch, Patty Griffin).

Press Quotes:

To sum it up, if you want well crafted and meaningful songwriter: you got it. If you want a female songwriter who is equal parts velvety smoothness, ocean deepness, and embodies warmth like a crackling fire on a bitter cold evening: you got it. If you want music that makes you feel something, music that says something and is profound and beautiful: well folks, you got that too. 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. - B. Carroll, Red Line Roots

...the most beautiful album I've heard in a long time. You need to understand that I'm not inclined to write that sentence hyperbolically. 
When I say that this album is beautiful, I don't just mean that it's soft and lilting on the ears, although it is. I mean that I find that each note makes me yearn for something — something I lost years ago, or something I didn't realize was absent until just that moment. When I tell you this album is beautiful, I mean each note evokes a wistfulness in me that I can barely understand. - V. Infante, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
