MOUNTAIN FEVER RECORDS RELEASES NEW ALBUM FROM
Milestones Available Today!
Consumers – Order Here
|WILLIS, Virginia—Mountain Fever Records is pleased to announce the release of a new album from Volume Five. Milestones is available to radio programmers and consumers today!|
Nashville is known as a “10 year town” – it takes a full 10 years to achieve any real success in the music business. And while fans have long been hot on the trail of Volume Five (V5), it’s easily said the industry is finally catching on and wising up. After a full decade of playing thousands of shows and making some of the best records in bluegrass, V5 has hit their stride. In 2017, the International Bluegrass Music Association honored V5 with Emerging Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Drifter,” arguably one of the most played tracks of the decade, thus far. Aptly named, Milestones is the seventh album for V5 on Mountain Fever Records. In the liner noted, Tim Stafford writes, “Volume Five has a very distinct sound that begins with Glen Harrell’s pitch-perfect, rich baritone voice. He has a great emotional range in his singing that allows the band to do a wide variety of songs effectively. The fact that Colby Laney and Jacob Burleson often switch guitar and mandolin seamlessly to create different tones and sounds testifies that Volume Five is one of the top instrumental bands on the circuit. Patton Wages is a groove machine on banjo, and bassist Chris Williamson provides a propulsive, rock-solid foundation. Glen’s fiddling is icing on the cake, as is guest Gaven Largent’s tasteful fills and leads. Jacob already has one of the best mandolin chops in bluegrass, and Colby is an inventive and powerful lead and rhythm guitarist. But this is a vocal band first, even beyond Glen’s powerhouse singing — the harmonies are exquisite as well, wrapping themselves around his lush lead vocals. This is one great bluegrass record.”
