Profile:
"Initial Records was an iconic Louisville based independent record label during the Nineties and early part of the new millennium. Initial released records from hardcore punk to indie rock over its 12-year span. Initial was well known for releasing genre defining records from Falling Forward, boysetsfire and Ink & Dagger, and creating the annual weekend long music festival, Krazy Fest.

Initial was founded in 1992 in a Dunkin' Donuts in suburban Detroit by three high school friends, Dennis Hepinstall, Carolyn Smith and Andy Rich."
