Amy Lynn Hartzler

Amy Lee (born Amy Lynn Lee on December 13, 1981 in Riverside, California) is the co-founder, lead singer and primary songwriter of Evanescence. Her family moved around the US a lot to places such as West Palm Beach, Florida and Rockford, Illinois, before finally settling down in Little Rock, Arkansas, where Evanescence was formed. She is the main songwriter and provides the image for the band as well as doing most of the interviews. Amy and Ben Moody met at a summer camp in Little Rock in 1994, where she played Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and two measures of a Meatloaf song on the piano.[1][2] After that, the rest is history.


Signature of Amy Lee

Amy designs many of her own clothes, including those worn in the music video for "Going Under"[3] and the dress she wore at the 2004 Grammy awards. After she designed it, she chose Japanese designer H. Naoto to make it for her.[4] In the early days, she also used to make some of her clothing. In concerts, she often wore a corset and fishnets, but she abandoned corsets in the 2011-12 Evanescence album tour, with Amy saying with an interview with VEVO Stylized that she has become more confident on stage since the early days.[5] Amy had a piercing on her left eyebrow, which she had taken out and re-pierced a few times, but later removed it in mid-2005. Amy then re-pierced it in April 2023 to celebrate the Diamond certification and 20 years of Fallen.[6]

Amy's short hair in 2008.[7]

Kerrang magazine readers voted her #1 Sexiest Rock Woman, with Hayley Williams from Paramore coming in 2nd.

Amy Lee was honored with the National Music Publishers' Association Songwriter Icon Award for 2008. She received the award on June 18 in New York City.[8] This award is very privileged as only one person gets it per year out of the whole music industry. She also performed for them. The Icon Award recognizes outstanding songwriters for personal achievement and who personify the vision of NMPA and the goals of its members. Former recipients include Jimmy Webb and Neil Sedaka.

Amy Lee attended the Betsey Johnson Spring 2009 Fashion Show on September 9, 2008.

Amy got her first tattoo on May 24, 2018 in tribute to her late brother, Robby Lee.

Her vocal range is mezzo-soprano.[9][10]

Solo Career

Amy in October 2009

In October 2008, Amy said during an interview with Spin that she had begun writing songs which she described as "definitely different", citing folky and Celtic influence, which were part of her "really old roots". She said that it is nothing that she would "categorize as Evanescence".[11] In an interview with The Gauntlet, she said that she doesn't know what project she is writing new songs for.[12] In another interview with Spin in 2010, during the time Amy was working with Steve Lillywhite on Evanescence's third album, she said that nothing from the material she mentioned in the 2008 interview will be on the new album.[13]

Later in 2011, during an interview with Billboard, she said that while the material made with Steve Lillywhite was scrapped, they may end up on future projects someday.

Vin1.jpg I think that some of those songs aren't right for Evanescence. Some of the songs that we had at that time could maybe be a solo thing in the future. We really do have a lot of extra songs from that time and also songs that the band wrote together; we just wrote a ton in the past few years and especially in the last one year. My head is totally focused on Evanescence right now, but I think it's totally possible that some of those songs will end up on different projects someday -- maybe solo, maybe something else.[14] Vin2.jpg

However, she revealed in 2015 that the album produced by Lillywhite was scrapped by her label and that she "was told that none of the songs I'd been pouring my heart into for a year, in any form, were good enough." She was forced to start over and release what we know now as the self-titled album.[15] She further said she owns those unfinished recordings, adding she plans to finish some of the scrapped songs and release them someday.

On December 1, 2013, Amy announced that she and Dave Eggar scored an independent film called War Story. The soundtrack album, titled Aftermath, was released in August 2014.

In 2015 she scored Hammerstep's short film Indigo Grey: The Passage.

In 2016, she released a covers EP, Recover, Vol. 1, as well as her second solo album, Dream Too Much, a children's album that was inspired by her son Jack. The following year she released two stand-alone singles, Love Exists and Speak to Me, the latter being the end title song of Voice from the Stone. She also scored the 2017 film Blind, and its soundtrack album was released in January 2018.

Social Efforts

Out of the Shadows

In 2005, Amy became a spokesperson for the Epilepsy Foundation and launched a campaign called Out of the Shadows. The goal is to help spread awareness about epilepsy and to encourage people to not discriminate against people with epilepsy. This campaign is important to Amy, as well as her family, because her younger brother had epilepsy and she has seen first hand the effect it has.

To Write Love in Her Arms

Amy is supporting To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. Her husband, Josh Hartzler, has a counseling background.[16] Amy was wearing a T-shirt of the movement on November 12, 2007, in Nissan Live on Yahoo! Music.

UN Haiti Relief Effort

On January 22nd, 2010, Amy announced on her Twitter account the release of "Together Again" to the public, after the Haiti earthquake events - "Today @Evanescence is releasing a new song, Together Again, and the proceeds are going to help Haiti! Details to follow!". If you were to donate at least five dollars or more, you would receive this song. According to Amy, the song successfully raised over $31,000 in its first week of availability.

Restore Freedom

In 2010 and 2012, Amy supported Restore Freedom to help the campaign against sex trafficking and for the construction of the first "safe house" in NY, to host the victims of sex trafficking. In the Restore Freedom official website, Amy had a personal page where it was possible to make a donation to support the project.[17] The campaign raised over 125,000$. She also donated a piano to the safe house and taught music to the survivors.[18] Her involvement with the organization inspired her to write My Heart is Broken.

In 2004, Amy claimed to be working on music for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe,[20] but it was rejected for being "too dark" and "too epic."[21] However, the producers of Narnia stated that she was never asked to compose any music for the film. She later revealed that she had written Together Again (previously referred to as The Narnia Song) and part of Lacrymosa for the initial concept film,[22] which producers had originally said would be in the vein of Lord of the Rings,[23] and she used part of The Narnia Song instrumental she wrote as the intro to Good Enough.[24] The latter two songs were included on The Open Door, and the former was released as a charity single in 2010.

Vin1.jpg Hey guys!

I can't believe I'm saying this but.....
I've decided to try out the twitter thing. I think it might be a fun way to stay in touch better and I know I need to announce myself on here because there are so many other 'me's.' My name on twitter is AmyLeeEv. I can't guarantee I'll have anything interesting to say but if you're really bored and need a distraction, why not follow me? Actually, I think I haven an idea for my first tweet. How about I spill the first little surprise I've been holding onto? See you there!
