Volume Five’s Voices Album Reaches New Heights

Volume Five - Voices - albumIn just a few short months, Volume Five’s album, Voices on Mountain Fever Records, has soared to new heights on the radio charts. Voices is currently #1 on SiriusXM Radio Bluegrass Junction’s Most Played Albums chart, made its debut on the April Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine National Bluegrass Survey Top 15 Album Chart, and is #3 on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Bluegrass Albums this week.

Voices is the group’s fifth album and features 12 tracks – five of which are now appearing on a variety of bluegrass radio charts. “Dream Softly” is the #1 song on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction’s Most Played Tracks this month, #6 on Bluegrass Today’s (BT) Top 20 chart, and #13 on the Roots Music Report this week, along with “Sam’s Gap” at #29. Two other songs appear on this week’s Bluegrass Today Top 20 including “Going Across the Mountain” at #5 and “King of California” at #20 with “Faithfully” making its debut last month. “King of California” also moved up five spots this month on the Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine’s National Bluegrass Survey Top 30 Song Chart as well.

Media has also raved about the album with recent reviews stating:

“Volume Five has been releasing some of the best new modern traditional bluegrass around for the past several years.” – Bluegrass Today

“Voices — the fifth album the group has released under the Mountain Fever Records label — showcases a blend of bluegrass styles, from traditional to contemporary. The album’s shift from an introspective tune at one moment, to a rousing and robust song the next, is done with incredible finesse. Volume Five can do it all, and with Voices, they do so with the reliability of a train that still, somewhere, comes down Main Street on a regular basis.” – Parchbench

“Voices is bluegrass at full strength. From the opener, an inspired reading of Dave Alvin’s folk ballad ‘King of California’ to the closer, the ironically titled ‘Faithfully,’ Volume Five shows its affinity for hard-hitting storytelling songs, while numbers like Amanda’ and ‘Colder and Colder’ resound with bedrock emotional truth. A 21st-century band in the best sense, Volume Five yet remains firmly rooted in tradition, in a fusion of old and new that brings to mind, without imitating, the early Country Gentlemen. Voices fits my definition of a great bluegrass album: one that reminds me why I fell in love with the music all those years ago. If they keep at it at this level, these guys are surely bound for glory.” – Rambles.Net

“With endorsements from Rhonda Vincent (who supplied guest vocals on one track) and Balsam Range vocalist Buddy Melton, this band has some enthusiastic admirers. I’m now one of them.” – Black Rose Acoustic

Volume Five includes the talents of Glen Harrell (Lead Vocals & Fiddle), Harry Clark (Mandolin & Vocals), Chris Williamson (Bass & Vocals), Patton Wages (Banjo & Vocals), and Colby Laney (Guitar & Vocals) who earned two International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) nominations last year – one for Emerging Artist of the Year and the other for “The Day We Learn to Fly” in the Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year category.

I didn’t just want us to be another band that moves onto the scene and is gone in a few years, but one that would have a unique sound that players and listeners would remember for many years to come – one that sounded like no other band in the business.”

Produced by Aaron Ramsey and recorded at Mountain Fever Studios, Voices is already receiving rave reviews from radio programmers and media:

“There’s not a bad cut on the album but I’ve been featuring “Crazy Night,” written by Jeff Partin. I also like the rousing gold-mining saga “King of California” that kicks off the album and the remake of Dolly Parton’s “Daddy Was an Old-time Preacher Man” featuring Rhonda Vincent on guest vocals.” – Wayne Rice, KSON – FM

“The new Voices project is a must have bluegrass CD. Superb vocals and top notch instrumentation make this a pleasure to listen to. From songs of heartbreak to songs of faith – 12 tracks of bluegrass done just as it should be!” – Joe Stutzman, Heartland Bluegrass

“Voices is the perfect title from the V5 gang because their voices have never sounded better! A mix of original songs with a few covers, you will just want to put on some headphones, lean back, shut your eyes, and just hear the “Voices” of Volume Five.” – Gene Skinner, Great Stuff Bluegrass

Mississippi’s Volume Five Heads to Radio with Brand New Single “Crazy Night”

Mississippi’s Volume Five Heads to Radio with Brand New Single “Crazy Night” TODAYSingle Sets Up January 2015 Release of VOICES

“Volume Five is one of the brightest young stars on the Bluegrass horizon.
They represent everything that’s good about a touring and recording band.
Wonderful new songs, great singing, and great music.”
– Darren Nicholson (Balsam Range)

Mississippi’s Volume Five heads to radio today with the release of “Crazy Night,” the first single from their upcoming Mountain Fever Records album VOICES, scheduled to hit the streets in January 2015. Volume Five is proving to be an exciting new band, blazing a red-hot trail on the bluegrass scene.

“Crazy Night” was written by former V5 member Jeff Partin and is released after what could be considered a stellar year for the band with two IBMA nominations for IBMA Emerging Artist of the Year and IBMA Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year for “The Day We Learn To Fly” (album), Stacy Richardson and Leroy Drumm (writers), Volume Five (producers), Mountain Fever (label).

A group that started as a casual jam band in 2008, has now grown into one of bluegrass music’s most unique new acts. Their first gospel and 4th overall release on Mountain Fever Records was the well crafted Southern gospel flavored bluegrass album, The Day We Learn To Fly, from which their nominations stemmed.

The band is excited to welcome back Colby Laney to the roster, who returns after a stint with Larry Stephenson. While each member comes to the table with a strong pedigree, having served tenure nationally with such well-known artists as Marty Raybon and Full Circle, Randy Kohrs and The Lites, The Roys and Tony Rice, these five musicians together truly blend into a band with staying power.

Volume Five features the talents of ring-leader Glen Harrell on fiddle; Harry Formby Clark on mandolin; Colby Laney on guitar, Patton Wages on banjo, and Chris Williamson on bass; and while Volume Five is considered a traditional band, their earthy, soulful singing, spot on harmonies, and precision picking set them apart from others.

V5’s touring schedule has afforded them the benefit of playing with numerous artists over the years, some of whom have become fans such as Buddy Melton of Balsam Range who says, “What defines a great band? Superior musicianship,impeccable singing, moving song selections…Volume Five has all the above and more…Extremely talented, yet humble and genuinely real people, Volume Five has a magical quality about them that will undoubtedly make a lasting impression in the world of acoustic music.”

One thing fans can count on with Volume Five is that they will never be let down with their live performances and that those live performances will transcend the live show and be just as impactful on their recorded music. Their level of quality musicianship is constant and is making an impact at radio.
