Evanescence/Amy Lee

Amy Lynn Hartzler (née Lee; born December 13, 1981), best known as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter and classically-trained pianist. She is co-founder and lead vocalist of the alternative metal band Evanescence. Her influences range from classical musicians such as Mozart to modern artists like Björk, Tori Amos, Danny Elfman,[1] and Plumb.

Evanescence was founded by singer, pianist and songwriter Amy Lee and former lead guitarist and songwriter Ben Moody. The two met at a youth camp in Arkansas.

They went through several names, including Childish Intentions and Stricken, before deciding on the name Evanescence (meaning the act of vanishing, synonymous to disappearance).

After releasing a few EPs, their first major album Fallen has been certified 6x Platinum , spent 43 weeks in the Billboard Top 10 and has sold over 14 million copies worldwide.

On October 22, 2003, Moody left the band abruptly in the middle of a European tour. The reasons for his departure were reportedly "creative differences."

Evanescence is set to release their second album, titled The Open Door, which will feature 13 tracks.
