About Volume Five:

Volume Five, the Mississippi-based group that started as a casual jam band in 2008, has grown into one of bluegrass music’s most popular and unique acts. The soulful lead vocals by fiddler Glen Harrell and the band’s tight instrumentals and vocal harmony have earned the group two IBMA Awards, numerous nominations, and many accolades. The band is now on tour with the masterful talents of Glen Harrell on Fiddle & Vocals, Jacob Burleson on Guitar & Vocals, Aaron Ramsey on Mandolin and Vocals, Chris Wade on banjo, and Jacob Eller on bass.

When I put this group together, I knew the style of music I wanted us to play and the goals we wanted to achieve. It was just a matter of finding the right guys who wanted to create their own identity in the industry. 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 – Glen Harrell.
