Operatic metal act UP ON WINGS is pleased to unleash its debut music video for “The Dream.” The video can be viewed via the group’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/
“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. “The Dream,” UPON WINGS’ debut single, arrived last spring via iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Google Music, and the song has gone on to garner nearly 10,000 Soundcloud plays and score airplay on a variety of metal radio stations.
UPON WINGS hails from the U.S. and can be described as operatic metal with a classical influence. After creating the idea for UPON WINGS, Erickson — who is also a music journalist for Gannett, Gibson, Loudwire and radio host and managing editor of Audio Ink Radio — entered the studio with Michigan-based, Grammy-nominated producer and engineer Glenn Brown to put the ideas onto tape. The result is music with a strong Euro-classical influence, showcasing Erickson’s classically-trained mezzo soprano vocals.
