Album Notes
Andrew Iafrate is a musician born and raised in the Mountain State of West Virginia and currently resides in Louisville, KY. He developed a cult following throughout the Midwest following the release of his debut solo record, 2005's Hallowed Be Our Wayward Ways. He has been noted for his strong vocals, intelligent songwriting, and for delivering “indie rock with folk influence at its finest" (Daily Athenauem, Morgantown, WV). He has shown promise in his developing career by supporting acts such as Magnolia Electric Co and J. Glenn (ex-My Morning Jacket). Andrew has followed in the footsteps of artists like Sufjan Stevens and Regina Spector by being featured on NPR's All Songs Considered: Open Mic, a music blog showcasing talented independent musicians.

After a brief affair with Austin's diverse music scene in 2006, Andrew returned to his home state in order to begin production on his sophomore release, 2007's The Ravages. The record is released under the Factory R imprint–-a project label established by West Virginia's defunct sci-fi metal phenomonon The Minus Tide. It features heartfelt, roots-influenced songcraft backed with traditional instrumentation, tight harmonies, and Andrew's haunting, transparent vocal style.
