Victor Alfieri – Founder/Owner/Editor-in-Chief
For Victor Alfieri, music has been in his blood from the very beginning. His father raised him on names like Plant, Morrison and Hendrix. For his mother, Motown was a religious experience. Smokey would wake him and Stevie would put him to bed.
As he started collecting music of his own, it was always the artist nobody had heard of that would draw him in. He would spend countless hours in used CD and record shops scouring for hidden gems, and his friends never knew what the hell he was playing.
While he makes a living out of making art from hardened Chef Boyardee products, his two lifelong passions are music and writing. He has covered mainstream music and has interviewed national acts, but like his early years of collecting, he has always been drawn to the hidden gems.
He has helped create CD samplers that feature unsigned acts on two different websites and has worked exclusively with independent artists for the last few years. His goal, and the reason for Wordkrapht is to shine the light on amazing talent that needs to be heard. This is what he was meant to do.
