Nashville, Tenn. (February 5, 2020) -- The award-winning bluegrass band Volume Five is proud to announce two new additions to the group. Aaron Ramsey on mandolin and Kameron Keller on bass, have joined Glen Harrell on fiddle, Patton Wages on banjo, Jacob Burleson on guitar to complete this stellar five-piece line-up.
Volume Five is currently celebrating the success of their latest album For Those Who Care To Listen on Mountain Fever Records. The album has received tremendous chart success with five tracks charting on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20 Song Chart. Two singles, “The Army Vet Song” and “15th of October,” reached the #1 spot. “The Army Vet Song” was also #14 on Bluegrass Today’s Top 30 Songs of 2019.
Multi-instrumentalist Aaron Ramsey is no stranger to the music of Volume Five. As a recording engineer for Mountain Fever Records, he has worked on several of Volume Five’s chart-topping albums. He toured twelve years with Mountain Heart before joining Volume Five on mandolin. “We have all known Aaron for years and have worked with him in studio. He has also filled in on mandolin and bass a few times in the past. We look forward to creating new music, and him being part of Volume Five,” said lead vocalist and fiddler Glen Harrell.
Volume Five’s new bass player, Kameron Keller, previously toured with Junior Sisk, Grasstowne, Darrell Webb Band and the Highland Travelers. “I am extremely excited to get to stand on stage with some of my best friends and favorite musicians. I have always loved the material choices of this band and the direction of their music. Now I am really looking forward to being a part of Volume Five playing bass,” said Kameron. Glen Harrell certainly agrees saying, “We are so excited to welcome Kameron to the band. We have known him for several years and he’s filled in with us before. Kameron has a great reputation as one of the best bass players in the business and we can’t wait to get started on a new recording so everyone else can hear what we hear. He’s a great guy and we look forward to performing and recording a lot of music with him.”

“We are so excited to welcome Aaron Ramsey to Volume Five. We have all known Aaron for several years, have worked with him in recording, and he has filled in on mandolin and bass a few times in the past. Over the last few years we have been trying to work it out where Aaron could be a part of the band but it always seemed like when we wanted him to come, he had other obligations, or when he had thought about picking with us we didn’t have a slot open. Well the opportunity for us both finally came around. Aaron is one of the most talented musicians and record producers in this business. He has a great musical mind whether on the stage or in the studio. Not only that but he is a good friend of ours, and its always fun to play music with your buddies. We look forward to creating new music, and him being part of Volume Five," said Glen Harrell.
