NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 14, 2023)
Angel Studios — the platform empowering creators to crowdfund, create, then distribute films and TV series globally with full creative control — will release the Season 1 soundtrack album from its animated fantasy series The Wingfeather Saga on April 21.
Composed by Isaac Horn (The Arcadian Wild), Kurt Heinecke (VeggieTales), and Ben Shive (Award-winning producer), the 31-track album also features collaborations with Andrew Peterson, series star Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid), and Nashville artist The Arcadian Wild, which serve as the album’s two singles.
“We really wanted the music to be unique to The Wingfeather Saga: organic and handcrafted, but cinematic when it needs to be – just like the animation style,” said author and producer Andrew Peterson. “Kurt, Ben, and The Arcadian Wild, along with Jodi Benson’s beautiful voice came together to make this soundtrack its own work of art.”
Benson, Tony-nominated Broadway star and Disney legend (the voice of The Little Mermaid’s Ariel, Toy Story’s Barbie, and Thumbelina) brings her iconic vocals in her role as Nia Igiby and in the single “My Love Has Gone Across The Sea.”
Led by songwriters Isaac Horn, Lincoln Mick, and Bailey Warren on fiddle, Nashville-based band The Arcadian Wild have roots in formal vocal music, with influences from progressive bluegrass and folk, blending the traditional with the contemporary to create a unique acoustic sound.
“Music is such an important fabric of The Wingfeather Saga and we wanted our soundscape to be distinct and rooted in our Nashville hometown,” said executive producer and showrunner J. Chris Wall when talking about the prominent Nashville influence on the soundtrack.
