Upon Wings November 2012 Band of the Month

UPON WINGS hails from the U.S. and can be described as female-fronted operatic / 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 a collection of music with strong Euro-classical ties, including UPON WINGS’ debut single, “The Dream (I’m Only Happy When I’m Sleeping).”

“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 KID ROCK, SPINAL TAP, EVANS BLUE 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 recently unleashed the official music video for “The Dream,” and the video can be viewed via the group’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/uponwingsofficial.

UPON WINGS is for those who value intrigue and adventure!
