Rock and metal fans will recognize plenty of names on “Afterlife.” Kid Rock recording engineer and Grammy-nominated mixing engineer Glenn Brown mastered the EP, while Brett Hestla (ex-Creed, Dark New Day) provided guest vocals and production talents on the lead single. More assistance came from Canadian guitarist and producer Kevin Jardine of Uplift Productions and drummer Peter Tzaferis.

UPON WINGS combines operatic, female-fronted goth-pop with rousing rock and metal in a unique, ethereal fashion. Frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson is a classically-trained dramatic mezzo-soprano, and her lyrics take listeners do­wn a path of heartfelt introspection, pain, joy and faith. Soli Deo Gloria!
