Biography

One For The Team is a Minneapolis-based indie rock band on The Militia Group, the creation of band frontman Ian Anderson (guitar and vocals). Other members are Grace Fiddler of The Battle Royale (keys and vocals), John Krueger (bass), Elliot Manthey (drums), and Bill Caperton (guitar). The band has released:

Good Boys Don’t Make Noise (2006)
Build It Up (2008)

It’s not every day that a beach record is birthed on the tundra. One for the Team’s sophomore release, “Build It Up,” is a record chock full of loud, sunny, sparkling, pop-gems of an alarmingly contagious magnitude with constant dueling male/female vocals and enough harmonies to melt the icicles from the Minnesota winter that created it.

While the record was written by Ian Anderson quietly on an acoustic guitar in his bedroom, it was assembled and shaped by a group of friends who took what once were introverted, gentle songs, to the extroverted, poppers that they now are.

However, the lighthearted exuberance felt on “Build it Up” did not happen overnight. For years, Anderson worked in the shadows, running seemingly endless musical projects from behind the curtain. From starting the tremendously successful Afternoon Records, a publicity firm, a popular music blog all while maintaining his position as patriarch of the youthful Minneapolis music scene, Anderson spent a long time out of the spotlight prior to this release.
