In a new interview with Amy Lee for TeamRock she talks about growing up, being cool, and sexuality in music. Check it out:
Synthesis revisits the old songs. Do you remember how it felt to be twenty years old and working on Fallen?
Unfortunately yes [laughs]. How would I describe myself back then? Wide-eyed, full of huge dreams, fairly insecure. But I think that’s pretty common. When we’re young we feel like we’re the only ones that kinda hate ourselves. I remember struggling with feeling like I didn’t deserve to be where I was. So definitely an emotional, hormonal moment. I still have a lot of big feelings, but it seems like the whole world is falling down around you sometimes when you’re a kid.
Didn’t being hugely successful make the problems go away?
No! Having lots of people all over the world touched by our music was a dream come true. But to have thousands, even millions, of people feel like they know you in an intimate way, it was difficult. I’m at a place in my life now where I think I’m pretty good at dealing with it. That whole thing, it’s not so scary any more. But it was scary in the beginning, for sure.
Amy Lee spoke with Music Week about the music industry and Synthesis. Read what she said:
In the new issue of Music Week, we speak to Amy Lee about the return of multi-million selling rock phenomenon Evanescence and their highly-anticipated new album, Synthesis. Only their fourth studio release in 14 years, the record sees Evanescence – completed by bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt and guitarists Troy McLawhorn and Jen Majura – present new material alongside re-recordings of some of their most defining songs, all with orchestral accompaniment.
Lee told Music Week that while Synthesisexplores the group’s latent orchestral potential with long-term collaborator David Campbell, it was also a chance to show how far their musical skills have developed.
“There’s a lot of musical skill that I personally didn’t have,” said Lee. “When we were writing Bring Me To Life I was 19! So just the musical ability that I had when I was 19 as a writer, as a singer, as an everything, I can do all that stuff better now because we’ve had all this time and experience. In addition, living inside those songs live for all these years, it just forever gives you ideas.”
Lee also opened up about the prospect of following the blockbusting success of her past, with Evanescence’s 2003 debut selling 1,324,026 copies to date in the UK according to Official Charts Company data.
La artista ganó una demanda por un millón de dólares. Sin embargo, asuntos legales le impedirán disfrutar la totalidad de su dinero.
La vocalista de Evanescence, Amy Lee ganó una millonaria demanda. Sin embargo, existe una razón por la cual no se puede celebrar.
En primer lugar, la empresa 110 Management Inc demandó a la cantante por un millón y medio de dólares por comisiones y tarifas no pagadas. Luego 110 Management bajó su monto a 335 mil dólares. Finalmente el juez dictaminó que Amy solo debía cinco mil dólares.
Sin embargo, luego de eso Amy Lee demandó a la empresa para que pagaran los servicios de su abogado durante el proceso judicial. El juez estuvo de acuerdo con la artista y le concedió la demanda por un millón de dólares, cuenta TMZ.
Lo curioso está en que de ese millón, 885 mil dólares son para pagar los honorarios del abogado, 72 mil en un testigo experto y otros costos administrativos, por lo que la artista solo podrá disfrutar 43 mil dólares.
EVANESCENCE SINGER AMY LEE SCORES $1 MILLION PAYDAY IN LAWSUIT But There’s a HUGE Catch
Evanescence singer Amy Lee just scored ONE MILLION BUCKS in a lawsuit … but there’s a catch.
First, the backstory: 110 Management Inc. sued Amy last year for unpaid commissions and fees. 110 originally sought $1.5 mil from the singer, and eventually lowered the demand to $335k. An arbitrator finally ruled the management co. was only owed only $4,863.66.
Fast-forward to 2017 … Amy fought to get 110 to pay her lawyer fees for drawn out legal battle.
The judge agreed she got screwed, and awarded Amy $1,036,773.68 … but that’s all going to her legal expenses — $885k in attorney fees, $72k in an expert witness and other administrative costs.
In a new episode of “Inside Synthesis”, where Evanescence shows us how the new album was made, we can see the famous violinist Lindsey Stirling participate in one of the two new Synthesis songs, “Hi-Lo”.
