Upon Wings: Alter Bridge, Papa Roach, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch Are All Musical Inspirations

Upon Wings singer Anne Erickson

Here’s more from Upon Wings’ new interview!

Upon Wings vocalist Anne Erickson recently spoke with Bobby over at XS Rock about everything from new music to the state of rock and metal music.

In the interview, she talked about how Iron Maiden inspired her to be in a band, and later, a plethora of modern rock and metal bands also served as inspiration, as she fell in love with the rock and metal genres.

“There are so many great bands that inspired me to get into rock and metal music,” she said. “I already mentioned Iron Maiden and Bruce Dickinson. A few other major influences include Tool, A Perfect Circle, Judas Priest…even bands that are unexpected for Upon Wings, like Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Papa Roach, Alter Bridge, Metallica, and Linkin Park. Of course, there are great female artists out there who have brought women to the forefront of rock and metal music, such as Amy Lee from Evanescence, Lzzy Hale from Halestorm, Maria Brink from In This Moment, in the pop realm Katy Perry and the greats, like Joan Jett.”

Upon Wings: Iron Maiden Inspired Our Start, Says Anne Erickson

Upon Wings singer Anne Erickson

Interview alert! Upon Wings vocalist Anne Erickson recently spoke with Bobby over at XS Rock about everything from new music to the state of rock and metal music.

In the interview, she talked about how Iron Maiden inspired her to be in a band.

“Music has always been a major part of my life,” she said. “I grew up singing opera and musical theater tunes, and then I discovered rock music—grunge, hard rock, metal, alternative. Everything from Metallica to Nirvana to Linkin Park to Shinedown. I never thought I could sing in a “rock” band because I have an operatic voice, but then I saw Iron Maiden in concert and heard Bruce Dickinson. He was so operatic. It opened my eyes to a different kind of heavy metal genre that inspired me to be in a band. “
