Jason Anderson is known for being the man behind Wolf Colonel. Anderson had started up Wolf Colonel in the fall of 1996. After playing many gigs and grabbing the attention of K Records' guru Calvin Johnson, Wolf Colonel released three albums on K. Being a multi-instrumentalist, Anderson has stretched his arms to many areas, most notably he was the drummer for Yume Bitsu and the Microphones, guitarist and drummer for Calvin Johnson & the Sons of the Soil; he has accompanied Little Wings and David Dondero, and has recorded and played with Blow and Mirah. In 2004, Jason Anderson decided to release a record under his own name. Where Wolf Colonel hits on the pop/rock side of styles, Jason Anderson's New England is a much more loose, intimate affair, touching on folk and country. New England was released in March 2004 on K Records.
