Shane Hickey Volumen 1
Shane Hickey

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 he’s 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.

Title: 2003 Best of Missoula

Best Local Band
Volumen rocket right into first place this year—in spite of not having played a single show (well, okay‚ one unofficial one under a different name) in nearly five months! The timing of their landslide win couldn’t have been better, either, as Feb. 28 marks the long-awaited return of these space-pop-proggers to live performance. A very encouraging year for original local music, with the Tom Catmull Band scoring a respectable second place. In third: rowdy cover-dealers the Tom Cats.
