Small Town Anthem was founded by twin brothers, Sean and Shannon Heier in 2008. Their dream was to bring their unique version of Roots Rock from the town of Redwood Falls, MN to the Twin Cities. Sean (bass, vocals) and Shannon (guitar, vocals) were joined in 2010 by a rural Kansas native, Kris Ransom. With the addition of his vocal and multi-instrumental talents, the band wrote and recorded their debut album, A Key to the Brain, released in June 2011.

Their hard work paid off as singles "Katie" and "The Fires Burn" were played on radio stations in Minnesota, Kansas, and South Dakota including Cities 97 and the popular internet radio show, Rock Capital Radio. Small Town Anthem has also made a live television appearance performing "Katie" for a Sioux Falls, SD NBC affiliate. Adding drummer Adam Schaberg late in 2012, Small Town Anthem has found a new groove that they believe they can ride to continued success. Look for them to bring an energetic live show to a venue or barn party near you.
