Kristina Stykos

Kristina Stykos is a music producer, recording engineer, songwriter, radio host and performer based in Vermont. Her recording studio, Pepperbox Studio, is solar, wind and generator powered and fully off-the-grid. She founded a record label, Thunder Ridge Records, in 2005 to release her own material and has since produced over 20 albums for herself and clients.

Kristina was awarded the “Best Songwriter of 2013” designation from one of Vermont’s major daily newspapers, the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus, for her release Wyoming Territory. This album was supported in its development by the Ucross Foundation & Brush Creek artist residencies of Wyoming.

After her first self-produced release, In The Earth’s Fading Light (2005), was designated “Best Vermont Album of the Year” by the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus, Kristina completed the next phase of her audio engineering education by earning a production certificate at the Berklee School of Music in Boston.

Her recent albums include Horse Thief (2015) and three collaborative projects, The Detangler (2018) with Ariel Zevon, Beautiful Blood (2013) with singer-songwriter Steve Mayone of Boston, and Raven (2011) co-produced with Grammy-nominated pianist Philip Aaberg of Montana.
