“This was a huge accomplishment for Upon Wings, to release our first music video,” frontwoman Anne Erickson said. “We’ve received such a warm response for The Dream, and I’m glad we were able to put together a music video to compliment the song. We are honored by the positive response and can’t wait to release new music soon.” Upon Wings recently recorded new music at the Johnny K-owned Goovemaster Studios in Chicago with a producer who they will announce soon and plan to release their debut this fall.
Upon Wings hails from the U.S. and can be described as female-fronted gothic metal with a classical influence. After creating the idea for Upon Wings, classically-trained mezzo-soprano Anne Autumn Erickson entered the studio with Michigan-based, Grammy-nominated engineer Glenn Brown to put the ideas onto tape. The result is Upon Wings’ debut single, The Dream, a song with a strong Euro-classical influence.
The Dream has racked up over 9,000 plays on Soundcloud, plus scored press in Blabbermouth.net, Bravewords.com, Metal Underground, Metal4all.com and beyond.
“I’m so excited about the first single from Upon Wings,” declares Erickson, adding that it was great working with Brown, who holds credits with Evans Blue, Spinal Tap, and The Verve Pipe. “It seems this is the right time to share The Dream. I’ve been singing classical, musical theater and opera music since I was four years old, and that led me on a path to pursue music journalism and rock radio. Now, it feels great to be back on the other side and releasing a song that brings together the classical sounds that I remember from my childhood with elements of symphonic metal. I thank everyone who gives our music a listen!”
Upon Wings is for those who value intrigue and adventure!
