The best kept secret in music

"KLGR Radio"

"A band of brothers that can draw a large crowd." - KLGR

"A Key To The Brain" 2011



Small Town Anthem was founded by twin brothers, Sean and Shannon Heier in 2008. Their dream was to bring their unique versio...n 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, the band recorded their second release titled "Long Time Coming" in May of 2015. The EP gained recognition and was mentioned on 89.3 The Current Local Show and had a write up in Rift Magazine. The EP got radio airplay with songs "I Know" "After All" and "Long Time Coming" on several Midwest radio stations

In early 2016 vocalist Jenna Warner was added to the band to add to the four part harmonies and distinct sound of STA.
