Album Notes
This album combines Kristina's eclectic talents; as a celtic guitar stylist, songwriter and dig-in traditional roots musician. She has gathered friends to make a home-studio recording that is full of both grit and passion, and beauty and grace. Mostly it's just honest. The song topics cover torn apart relations, spiritual alienation, and inspired reconnection with the core of living. Listeners who enjoy good words should find this a pleasant break from much of contemporary music. The 12 page CD book is full of Kristina's thoughts and writing, and she takes time to give you background on the instrumentals as well. For guitar players, her quirky but accomplished style will provide ample room for wondering "how she did it". Open tunings are definitely featured here, and wonderful acoustic guitars. There are a few significant dedications on the album, one in particular to the late Scottish fiddler Johnny Cunningham, which includes a powerful song about her encounters with him in recent years. All in all, this is a unique feast of music from a truly unique artist.

Amazing, Heart-Felt Folk CD!
"In The Earth's Fading Light" delights in terrific harmonies and spiritual essence of a supreme guitarist. Kristina Stykos passionately opens the selection with "This I Know", which then gives way to a tender instrumental loaded with stunningly beautiful guitar entitled "Gypsy Lullaby". We could not get enough of Stykos' style. Favorites can all go by the wayside, as they cannot be selected out of such a compelling collection of music. Moreover, the stripped down production of these tunes add to the overall atmosphere of heart-felt honesty. Kristina puts everything she feels into these songs, which is why this album deserves to be heard.
