I Am A Drifter from Volume Five

Drifter - Volume FiveMountain Fever Records has released an advance single, I Am A Drifter, the quasi-title track from their next album by Volume Five, Drifter.

The highly engaging song is a contribution from award-winning writer Donna Ulisse and Marc Rossi, and sung by Volume Five fiddler Glen Harrell, surely among the finest lead vocalists currently in bluegrass.

Glen said that this one grabbed him as soon as he heard the demo, which featured Jerry Salley singing.

“The first thing that caught my ear was how Jerry began the song with just a guitar and I felt that was so different, and could make for a great lead off cut on an album. Once the melody and lyrics began to meld, I envisioned this as our first single immediately. It seems to have all the ingredients to stand alone as a solid song while also setting the tone for the entire album.”


Harry Clark is on mandolin, Patton Wages on banjo, Chris Williamson on bass, and Colby Laney on guitar.

I Am A Drifter, the single, is available for download purchase now from popular digital resellers, and to radio programmers at Airplay Direct. Mountain Fever will release the full album on June 24.

Look for this one to start climbing the charts right away.
