How Amy Lee brought her powerful vocals to life

How Amy Lee brought her powerful vocals to life

Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee has one of the most powerful voices in music. But it took a long time for her to feel comfortable using it.

“I’ve got to be honest, that came after I’d been doing it for a while,” she tells EW. “I was pretty insecure in the beginning; I always felt like I wasn’t that good. I started playing music with people in what eventually turned into a band when I was 13, and I was singing only because it was the vehicle for the poetry I used to write.”

Lee laughs as she reflects on being a “wannabe dramatic 11-, 12-, 13-year-old” who poured all of her emotions into those poems — along with her original dream of becoming the next Mozart. “I wanted to write genius symphonic opuses and impress everyone with my skills that I didn’t have,” she says. “I was kind of halfway down the path of realizing that that would be an extreme challenge when grunge hit and I started playing with boys in bands.”

Yet she credits joining choir in junior high as a major factor in her becoming a singer, a role she initially saw as “blending in” rather than standing out. It wasn’t until she realized how much people liked her voice that she gained the necessary confidence to bare her soul on her own. “The more I did it, the more positive attention I received,” she says, adding with a chuckle, “Ugh that feels so weird and insecure to say it that way! I don’t feel that way now.” [READ MORE]

Evanescence adds a level of interest to their songs that seems downright impossible to beat. Fallen is the ultimate showcase of their ability, ranging significantly in both tone and technical style. While each track is a haunting triumph in itself, the overall collection is a paragon of cohesiveness and eclecticism. [READ MORE]

It has been awhile since I did a gallery update and I am sorry for that but today I have added some new photos to the gallery. I added both The Chain and The Game is Over music video captures to the gallery. I also added a few more to one of the existing photoshoots we had posted on the gallery awhile ago. Enjoy!

Amy Lee Talks ‘The Bitter Truth’ Album, ‘Yeah Right’ Single

Amy Lee Talks ‘The Bitter Truth’ Album, ‘Yeah Right’ Single

During a recent chat with Kerrang!EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee was asked if the band’s latest single “Yeah Right” was a good indication of the kind of “curveballs” fans can expect from the band’s upcoming album “The Bitter Truth”. She responded: “I think there’s definitely more where that came from…

“When making a complete album, especially after all this time, I always want to just put out a statement, like, ‘This is where we’re at, this is who we are’ — it has to be a whole spectrum of emotions and reflections that make up who you are, who the band is,” she continued. “So far, I feel like each song that we put out is a very different colour of the spectrum and there are more colors yet to come, for sure.”

Regarding the most recent single, Amy said: “‘Yeah Right’ has been a long time coming; I started that song a decade ago. It was mostly there, it had been at the top of the pile for a really, really long time. We’ve always had a cool pile of extra scraps and pieces of unfinished songs. That’s just one that kept on not plugging in, and then something happened this year when we got together and started playing and pulling songs together in pre-production — I was, like, ‘I finally know how we can make it work!’ It’s one of those songs that we’re going to have to figure out how to do live because I don’t want to be glued to the Moog the whole time. It might be a good time to whip out the keytar.” [READ MORE]

Evanescence’s Amy Lee Gets Back to Life

Evanescence’s Amy Lee Gets Back to Life

Amy Lee misses Brooklyn. She lived there for 12 years with her husband (and later their son, born in 2015), before they left their apartment for Nashville a year ago.

“The perfect year,” she says with an eye roll over Zoom. Lee had hoped to be closer to her family in Arkansas and friends in Nashville when she moved, only to find herself stuck at home with the rest of the world. “We haven’t gotten [to see people] as much as we would have liked to because of Covid, but now we are here, and we will be set up for a better next year,” she adds optimistically.

That’s not the only plan she’s had to readjust: Earlier this year, her alt-metal band, Evanescence, returned to the studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz, writing and recording songs for what will be their first album of new material since 2011’s Evanescence. While the pandemic slowed them down, the group has forged onward, working remotely at first and later, after getting negative Covid tests, at a Nashville studio. In April, they released the sobering power ballad “Wasted on You” as the lead single from their very much in-progress LP, The Bitter Truth, which is due to be released in early 2021. [READ MORE]
