Amy Lee Bio
In an interview on AOL Music, Lee said that the 1st songs she remembered writing were called “Eternity of the Remorse” & “A Single Tear”. The 1st was written when she was eleven years old & wanted to become a classical composer, and the second was for an assignment when she was in the 8th grade. Lee has a recognizable fashion style, marked by her occasional use of gothic make-up & taste for Victorian-styled clothing. She also designs many of her own clothes, including those worn in the music video for “Going Under”, the dress she wore at the 2004 Grammy awards, and the dress worn for the cover of The Open Door. After she designed it she chose Japanese designer H. Naoto to make it for her. In concerts, she often wears a corset-top & fishnets, as well as long skirts & knee-high boots. She at 1 point had a piercing on her left eyebrow, which is visible on the cover of Fallen. Lee revealed during the live broadcast of MuchMusic’s January 9, 2007 episode of Live @ Much that she had become engaged the previous evening. She later confirmed on EvThreads.com that Josh Hartzler, a therapist & long-time friend, proposed to her. She noted in an interview that the songs “Good Enough” and “Bring Me to Life” were inspired by him. The couple married on May 6, 2007, and honeymooned near The Bahamas. She has posted on EvThreads that she is “now officially Mrs. Amy Hartzler.”
