SonicCathedral Interviews Amy

Jason: It's been almost a year since the album came out. How have things been going both with the album and on the road?

Amy: Awesome. We've been all over the world. We've been to all six inhabited continents since then. We went to Europe, South Africa, South America, Scandinavia, Middle East, all over the place. It's been really great everywhere. It's been cool to tour so many places again and some new places too. The shows have been well received and big and it's been great. Almost like we never left.

Jason: In the US you have done a couple of headline tours in support of The Open Door. Do you plan to do a bigger arena tour after the Family Values tour ends?

Amy: Uh huh. Yeah. This would have been the time for us to do the bigger tour I've been talking about, but then the Family Values thing came up and we thought that it would be cool to do something with a lot of other bands during the summer time. It's festival season. I don't know. More bang for your buck. Besides Korn's amazing and there's a lot of other great bands on the bill. It's better this way because instead of doing two of our own tours right in a row. We can just do this and then have something different at the end of the year.

Girl Talk With Amy Lee

Korn aren’t the only band in the spotlight on this summer’s Family Values tour: the mostly metal and male-dominated line-up has undergone a gender makeover with the addition of the Amy Lee–fronted Evanescence at the top of the bill. Lee has emerged as a potent presence in the wake of Evanescence’s Grammy-winning 2003 album Fallen (Wind-up), wresting control of the band from guitarist/co-founder Ben Moody and, just this past May, handing guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray their walking papers. But that hasn’t stopped Evanescence from moving five million copies of their latest album, last year’s The Open Door (Wind-up), worldwide. We spoke to the recently married Lee about touring, her marriage, and the state of music today. Here’s some of what she had to say.

Do you remember some of the original inspirations for Evanescence?
When I was growing up and when I was formulating ideas for Evanescence, I was obsessed with the Baz Luhrmann version of Romeo + Juliet — not just the soundtrack though, something about the movie. Back then, Tim Burton and Danny Elfman movies were huge. I would just listen to the scores. At the same time, I loved Soundgarden, Depeche Mode, Björk, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins. There was so much music that, to me, was so good. I guess I still listen to more music from back then.

------

How Do You Feel About the State of music today?
I think it’s a little confused. I don’t think rock is dead or anything like that; I just think we’re going through a weird period with the Internet. A lot of bands are struggling. Luckily, a lot of new bands that you would never hear are coming through. If you have the time and if you know what you’re doing, you can use the Internet and go to MySpace and search for bands that don’t have record deals. That’s really cool. At the same time, I think labels are pushing signed artists to do things more and more that they wouldn’t want to do — to put out less music and water it down because they’re so afraid of losing money. So I don’t know. I don’t have a ton of bands that are brand new that I absolutely love right now. I love Muse — we’ve been listening to them a ton backstage lately. They’re not that new, but I think they’re incredible.

------

What kind of music did you have at your wedding?
It was actually just two guys playing guitar and singing. They kind of sang half the time — mostly it was just guitar. It was like from Pink Floyd to Coldplay, really eclectic. My dad’s a musician; he plays a billion different instruments. So he found these guys and I don’t know what he told them. I was scared too because we got married in Arkansas and he got a band that lives there and I was really afraid. But it turned out great.

------

You’ve made it clear with the changes you’ve made in the band that you’re in charge. Is that DIFFICULT as a woman?
I don’t know it any other way. I don’t feel like I get treated badly or anything. Being a girl, I don’t feel like I can’t be a good leader.But as far as getting respect from the public as a writer, that was the hard part for me. I feel like I’ve gotten it now, but for a long time it was a tough fight. With Ben [Moody], when he was in the band, it was very important to him for some reason to prove to everyone that I wasn’t doing anything — that I was just up there singing and there was some mastermind guy behind the whole thing. So by the time he left the band and we made another record, and it was really good, we sort of proved everything he said wrong. That changed things for us — the proof is in the pudding.

Turmoil is over for Evanescence

Although it's tougher than ever for new bands to break through nationally, Evanescence has made out just fine, from winning a best new artist Grammy Award to selling more than 6 million copies of the 2003 CD "Fallen," which includes the hits "My Immortal" and "Bring Me to Life."

The success continues with the follow-up album, "The Open Door," which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 last year with the single "Call Me When You're Sober."
