As the introverted boy genius of VOLUMEN, it most often falls to Shane to write the songs that make the whole world sing and the young girls cry. When heís not singing about underwater lovemaking or playing video games for 36 hours straight (passions which, as reliable sources inform, he enjoys more or less equally), Shane can usually be found pressing wildflowers in his lockable Holly Hobby diary (combination: 3-23-16) or walking and reading Popular Mechanics at the same time. He is also a world class mental archivist of nearly-forgotten pop acts of the early 1980s and an unrepentant fan of some of the fruitiest music ever recorded. In fact, the last male bonding I did with Shane was over our shared love of the Art of Noise, and the Magnetic Fields album Holiday.

Here's some articles and other random press for your viewing pleasure.

If you were driving to Las Vegas from Los Angeles having already downed a few beers and are driving in a convertible with the top down and the lights off, despite the fact itís well past midnight, youíd also be listening to Volumen. Itís raunchy rock-n-roll thatís in your face with mighty cigarette piercing guitar fuzz and manic drums. Oh and did I mention that theyíre from the quite dead music scene of Montana? You know that state that probably has more livestock that humans. But regardless of their musical isolation the folks in Volumen make the best of it with hard rock with keyboards that help any Montanan drown their sorrows.
