Aaron Ramsey Joins Volume Five 

“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.
