D.A.R.K.

O’Riordan mulai merekam materi lagu baru bersama JETLAG, kolaborasi antara Andy Rourke dari The Smiths dan Ole Koretsky, pada April 2014. Mereka kemudian membentuk trio bernama D.A.R.K. Album pertamanya, Science Agrees, dirilis bulan September 2016.

Kehidupan Pribadi


Pada tanggal 18 Juli 1994, O’Riordan menikahi Don Burton, mantan manajer tur Duran Duran. Keduanya dikaruniai tiga anak. Tahun 1998, mereka membeli peternakan seluas 61-hectare (150-acre) bernama Riversfield Stud di Kilmallock, County Limerick, lalu dijual pada tahun 2004. Mereka kemudian pindah ke Howth, County Dublin, dan menghabiskan musim panas di kabin kayu di Buckhorn, Ontario, Kanada. Tahun 2009, keluarga O’Riordan pindah permanen ke rumahnya di Buckhorn.

Pada Agustus 2013, ia pulang untuk menetap di Irlandia. Ia dan Burton berpisah pada tahun 2014 setelah 20 tahun menikah, kemudian bercerai.

Ia dibesarkan sebagai penganut Katolik Roma. Ibunya adalah penganut Katolik taat yang memilih nama putrinya seperti Lady of the Seven Dolours. Dolores menyukai almarhum Paus Yohanes Paulus II. Usai menemuinya di Kota Vatikan, O’Riordan mengatakan: “[Paus] sangat baik, sangat tenang. Saya sangat menggemarinya. Saya rasa beliau benar-benar peduli dengan orang miskin dan suka bertemu masyarakat. Saya melihatnya saat beliau berkunjung ke Limerick ketika saya masih kecil. Senang rasanya bisa membawa ibu saya bertemu beliau.” Ia bertemu Paus Yohane Paulus II dua kali, tahun 2001 dan 2002.

Pada Mei 2017, ia mengaku kepada seorang pewawancara bahwa ia didiagnosis mengidap gangguan bipolar dua tahun sebelumnya dan sering mengalami gejalanya selama bertahun-tahun. The Cranberries menyebut “sakit punggung” sebagai alasan pembatalan tur Eropa bagian kedua pada Mei 2017. Pada akhir 2017, O’Riordan mengatakan bahwa ia sedang memulihkan diri dan tampil dalam acara pribadi.

Biography


Early Life

Andy Lau was born in Tai Po, Hong Kong. A son of a fireman (劉禮), as a young boy Lau had to fetch water for his family up to eight times a day because their house was not equipped with plumbing, and his family was considered wealthy as his grandfather was a landowner, but his father left with him to the slums of Diamond Hill when he was 6, where the area was full of wooden houses, and was burnt down when he was 11. He later graduated from a Band One secondary school, Ho Lap College in San Po Kong, Kowloon. He was named as Lau Fook-wing (劉福榮) during his academic years. He also practices Chinese calligraphy. Lau converted to Buddhism in the 1980s. He was raised in a nominally Buddhist household and is now a follower of the Lingyan Mountain Temple in Taiwan.

Personal Life

In 2008, Lau married Malaysian Chinese Carol Chu after 24 years of speculation over their relationship. The couple were married in Las Vegas. On 9 May 2012, Chu gave birth to his first child, a daughter named Hanna. In January 2017, Lau was seriously injured after being thrown off a horse during a film shoot in Thailand.

Career


TV Acting

]In 1981, Lau signed up for the artist training program offered by TVB, which is where his acting career began. The lead role which led to his initial popularity was in the 1982 TVB series The Emissary. In 1983, Lau’s role as “Yang Guo” in the TVB wuxia series, The Return of the Condor Heroes further increased his popularity. From then on, he would take on many of the lead roles in many of the TVB series.

In September 1983, TVB was looking to increase their ratings in competition with Korea and Japan for the best variety show. The station then created the show TVB All-star challenge (星光熠熠勁爭輝) featuring almost the entire line-up of the most popular actors and singers at the time. Lau along with Tony Leung, Michael Miu, Felix Wong and Kent Tong were branded as “TVB’s Five Tigers” (無線五虎將) due to their popularity on the show.

In the late 80s, Lau left TVB due to contract problems. TVB wanted to bind him to an exclusive five-year contract which Lau refused to sign, so TVB blacklisted him. He then focused on his film career.

In 1981, Lau made a guest appearance in one of Susanna Kwan’s music video and caught the eye of the manager Teddy Robin. Teddy Robin then gave Lau a chance to play a small role in the movie Once Upon a Rainbow. This was the first step in Lau’s film acting career. He was then given a role in Ann Hui’s 1982 film, Boat People. Later in 1983 he had his first leading role in a Shaw Brothers film called On the Wrong Track.

One of his early leading roles included the more serious 1988 film, The Truth (法內情). However, Lau is best known in films for his (often) recurring roles as a “Heroic Gangster” such as Wong Kar-wai’s 1988 film, As Tears Go By, and Benny Chan’s 1990 film, A Moment of Romance.

Though a respectable actor, Lau in the early days was known more for his good looks. The people he works with say he is an idol, but he has claimed to be an artist. Lau has proved his acting skills in many of his movies. His first major acting prize came with A Fighter’s Blues, which was his first Golden Bauhinia Award for Best Actor. He would win the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor award that year for Running out of Time. In 2004, he won the prestigious Golden Horse Award for his performance in Infernal Affairs III, the sequel to the popular Infernal Affairs. He is also known to Western audiences for starring in wuxia films such as House of Flying Daggers, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography.

In 2005, Lau was awarded “No.1 Box office Actor 1985–2005” of Hong Kong, yielding a total box office of HKD 1,733,275,816 for shooting 108 films in the past 20 years. The aforementioned figure is as compared to the first runner-up Stephen Chow’s (HKD 1,317,452,311) and second runner-up Jackie Chan’s (HKD 894,090,962). “I’ve never imagine that it would be as much as 1.7 billion!” he told the reporters. For his contributions, a wax figure of Lau was unveiled on 1 June 2005 at the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. In 2007, Lau was also awarded the “Nielsen Box Office Star of Asia” by the Nielsen Company (ACNielsen).

Lau released his first album “Only Know that I Still Love You” (只知道此刻愛你) under Capital Artists in 1985. However, his first album was not a big hit. Despite having a voice not traditionally associated with popular music, his hard work and perseverance resulted in him being one of the most successful singers in Cantopop. His singing career reached stellar status in 1990 with the release of the album entitled “Would It Be Possible” (可不可以), and his subsequent releases only solidified his status as a marketable singer. For that song, he would win his first 1990 RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards. He would then win at least one RTHK award category every year consecutively until the year 2007.

From Jade Solid Gold Top 10 Awards, he has won the “Most Popular Hong Kong Male Artist” award 7 times and the “Asia Pacific Most Popular Hong Kong Male Artist” award 15 times. He also entered into Guinness World Records for “Most Awards Won by a Cantopop Male Artist”. By April 2000, he had already won a total unprecedented 292 awards.

Many of his songs quickly topped the music charts, not only in Hong Kong, but also in Taiwan, Mainland China, and in many different parts of Asia. Some of the most notable hits by Lau include “The Days We Spent Together” (一起走過的日子), “If You Are My Legend” (如果你是我的傳說), “The Tide” (潮水), “Forget Love Potion” (忘情水), “True Forever” (真永遠), “Chinese people” (中國人), “Love You Forever” (愛你一萬年), “You Are My Woman” (你是我的女人), “Secret Admiration” (暗裡著迷). Besides singing in Cantonese and Mandarin, he also sang in other languages, such as English, Japanese, Malay, and Taiwanese. One example of a Hokkien song was (世界第一等), and a Cantonese cover of Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You” (我恨我痴心).

Since the early 1990s, Lau, along with Jacky Cheung, Aaron Kwok and Leon Lai have been referred by the Chinese media as the Cantopop Four Heavenly Kings.

Lau sang alongside Jackie Chan during a part of the 2008 Summer Olympics closing ceremony on 24 August 2008. In addition Lau, who has been supporting the disabled athletes in Hong Kong for more than a decade, was appointed as the Goodwill ambassador for the 2008 Summer Paralympics. He led other performers in singing and performing the song “Everyone is No.1” at the Beijing National Stadium just a few hours before the 2008 Paralympics opening ceremony began to show his support for the disabled athletes. He also sang the theme song “Flying with the Dream” with Han Hong during the Paralympics opening ceremony on 6 September 2008.

As a songwriter, his only creative works are as a lyricist, and most of his songs are written for himself, but he almost never wrote lyrics for 2 versions of the same melody.

Appearance in other Media

Lau is alleged to have been featured as a non-player character (NPC) as a random pedestrian in a sandbox-style action video game called Prototype. On 6 July, the Hong Kong local newspapers Headline Daily and Sing Tao Daily reported on Lau’s cameo.

Lau was badly injured on January 16, when he was thrown off a horse during a commercial shoot in Thailand. The Thai commercial was released in March, but with all horses and horse-riding scenes cut from the final version. Fortunately, Lau shared that he was 95% recovered on Aug 2017.

Community Works

In 1994, Lau established the Andy Lau Charity Foundation which helps people in need and promotes a wide range of youth education services. In 1999, he was awarded the Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World, being the third person from Hong Kong at that time to bestow this distinguished honour. In 2008, Lau took a main role in putting together the Artistes 512 Fund Raising Campaign for donation relief toward the victims of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. It was one of the largest and most ambitious charity event ever assembled in the territory.

Lau has been noted for his active involvement in charity works throughout his 30 years of showbiz career and was honoured “Justice of Peace” by the Hong Kong SAR government in 2008. In May 2010, he received the “World Outstanding Chinese” award and an “honorary doctorate” from the University of New Brunswick, Canada.

He was also named in the Panama Papers leak.

Evanescence

BIOGRAPHY-NEW

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Evanescence

Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody. After recording independent albums, the band released their first full-length album, Fallen, on Wind-up Records in 2003. Fallen sold more than 17 million copies worldwide and helped the band win two Grammy Awards and seven nominations, as well as scoring No. 6 in CBS’s “Top Bestselling Albums of the Last 10 Years” (2008). A year later, Evanescence released their first live album, Anywhere but Home, which sold more than one million copies worldwide. In 2006, the band released their second studio album, The Open Door, which sold more than five million copies.

The line-up of the group has changed several times: David Hodges leaving in 2002, co-founder Moody left in 2003 (mid-tour), bassist Will Boyd in 2006, followed by guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray in 2007. The last two changes led to a hiatus, with temporary band members contributing to tour performances. Billboard ranked Evanescence No. 71 on the Best Artists of the Decade chart.

Announced in June 2009, the newest line-up of the band eventually returned with Evanescence, their self-titled third studio album, released on October 11, 2011. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 127,000 copies in sales. The album also debuted at No. 1 on four other different Billboard charts; the Rock Albums, Digital Albums, Alternative Albums, and the Hard Rock Albums charts. The first single, “What You Want”, was released on August 9, 2011. The second single, “My Heart Is Broken”, was sent to radio stations in October 31, 2011. The band spent 2012 on tour in promotion of their new album with other bands including The Pretty Reckless and Fair to Midland.

History

1995–2001: Formation and Early Years

Evanescence was founded by singer, pianist and songwriter Amy Lee and former lead guitarist and songwriter Ben Moody. The two met in 1994 at a youth camp in Little Rock, where Moody heard Lee playing “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” by Meat Loaf on the piano. Their first songs together were “Solitude” and “Give Unto Me”, both written by Lee, and “Understanding” and “My Immortal”, both written by Moody. The songs were edited by both artists, and they shared equal credit.

he band's signature font was created when Fallen was in development. The label designers used slightly modified versions of each character to make the track titles look unique.

Two of Lee and Moody’s songs were played on local radio stations, raising local awareness of the group and demand for a concert. The band eventually appeared live, and became one of the most popular acts in the area.[citation needed] After experimenting with band names, such as Childish Intentions and Stricken, they decided on Evanescence, which means “disappearance” or “fading away” (from the word evanesce, which means “to disappear”).

The band released two EPs. The first is the self-titled Evanescence EP (1998), of which about 100 copies were made and distributed at the band’s early live performances. The second is the Sound Asleep EP, also known as the Whisper EP (1999). There was also a third EP called Mystary EP (2003). For their first full-length demo CD, Origin (2000), about 2,500 copies were produced and sold to concert audiences. Origin and the EPs contain demo versions of some of the songs on their debut album, Fallen. During a radio interview, Lee and Moody encouraged fans to download the band’s older songs from the Internet.

Having first encountered the band at Ardent Studios in Memphis and been suitably impressed, producer Pete Matthews played their demos to his friend at Wind-up Records, Diana Meltzer. It was when Meltzer heard “My Immortal” that she became interested in signing the band, saying she “knew it was a hit”. The Wind-up A&R told HitQuarters that, although they already exhibited huge talent, they were still young and needed to be developed, and “given the time and opportunity they could deliver a breakthrough sound.” Once signed the band were relocated to Los Angeles, given an apartment and rehearsal space and enrolled in a gym. Lee was given acting, vocal and movement classes. After almost two years producer Dave Fortman was brought in to produce their first album Fallen. However, record label executives initially refused to release the album unless the band would agree to add a full-time male co-vocalist. When the band would not agree to this demand, the label relented and only insisted on having a male vocalist in the album’s lead single, “Bring Me to Life”. Lee was still not happy about this, but agreed to it.

In early 2003, the lineup was completed by Amy Lee and Ben Moody’s friends, John LeCompt, Rocky Gray and Will Boyd, all of whom worked on Evanescence’s earlier songs. While they were looking to promote Fallen, Evanescence accepted an offer from the video game company Nintendo to perform on the Nintendo Fusion Tour, which they headlined in 2003.

Fallen spent 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10; was certified 7x Platinum in the United States; and sold more than 17 million copies worldwide.[5] The album was listed for 104 weeks on the Billboard 200, and it was one of eight albums in the history of the chart to spend at least a year on the Billboard Top 50.

On October 22, 2003, Moody left the band during the European tour for Fallen, reportedly because of creative differences. In an interview several months later, Amy Lee said: “…we’d gotten to a point that if something didn’t change, we wouldn’t have been able to make a second record.” This became a point of confusion, as Moody and Lee stated on the Fallen album liner notes that they were best friends. Lee said it was almost a relief that Moody left because of tensions created within the band. During an interview, Lee has said, “I don’t know, I just think it’s exactly what I would’ve expected. He’s more about kind of the pop influence sort of thing and also, you know, about being commercial and I mean selling albums: That’s the part of him we often disagreed on. I wanted to do the more artistic weird thing and he’d wanna do the thing that people would want to hear…” She adds “So that’s a lot of the reason [why] it’s been so fun writing now, is [that] we’re not thinking about that. It’s like ‘what do we like?’, ‘what’s fun?’, like ‘what do we want to do that’s different?'” Moody was replaced by Terry Balsamo from Cold.

Evanescence’s major label debut single “Bring Me to Life”, featuring guest vocals from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones, was a global hit for the band and reached number 5 on the American Billboard Hot 100. It provided Evanescence with their first UK number-one single, where it stayed for four weeks from June–July 2003. The song also became the official theme for WWE No Way Out 2003. The equally popular “My Immortal” peaked at number 7 in the U.S. and UK charts, and both songs were featured in the soundtrack for the action movie Daredevil. “Bring Me to Life” was recognized at the 46th Grammy Awards in 2004, where the band won the Best Hard Rock Performance and Best New Artist awards and were nominated for two others. The two other singles off Fallen are “Going Under” (#5 U.S. Modern Rock Tracks, No. 8 UK Charts) and “Everybody’s Fool” (#36 U.S. Modern Rock Tracks, No. 23 UK Charts); all were promoted by a music video.

In addition, Fallen is No. 6 at the “Top Bestselling Albums of the Last 10 Years”. After selling more than 7 million copies in the United States alone and 17 million worldwide.

2006–2009: The Open Door

A spokesperson for the band’s label confirmed on July 14, 2006, that bassist Will Boyd had left the band for “not wanting to do another big tour” and wanting “to be close to his family.” Amy Lee originally broke the news to the fans in a post on an unofficial Evanescence site, EvBoard.com. In an interview with MTV, posted on their website on August 10, 2006, Lee announced that Tim McCord, former Revolution Smile guitarist, would switch instruments and play bass for the band.

The album progressed slowly for several reasons, including Amy Lee’s desire to maximize the creative process and not rush production, other band members’ side projects, guitarist Terry Balsamo’s stroke, and the loss of their former manager. Although Lee stated on the fan forum Evboard that Evanescence’s new album would be completed in March 2006, the release was pushed back allegedly because “Wind-up Records…wanted to make a few changes to the upcoming single “Call Me When You’re Sober”, which hit modern rock and alternative rock radio on August 7, 2006. The 13-track album The Open Door was released in Canada and the United States on October 3, 2006; the United Kingdom on October 2, 2006; and Australia on September 30, 2006.[31] The album sold 447,000 copies in the United States in its first week of sales and earned their first No. 1 ranking on the Billboard 200 album chart, becoming the 700th No. 1 album in Billboard since the chart became a weekly feature in 1956. The music video for “Call Me When You’re Sober” was shot in Los Angeles and is based on the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. The Open Door became available for pre-order on the iTunes Store on August 15, 2006; the music video for “Call Me When You’re Sober” was also made available.

The tour for The Open Door began on October 5, 2006, in Toronto and included locations in Canada, the U.S. and Europe during that year. This first tour continued on January 5, 2007 and included stops in Canada (alongside band Stone Sour), Japan and Australia (alongside band Shihad) and then returned to the U.S. for a second tour in the spring (alongside bands Chevelle and Finger Eleven).[33][34] As part of their tour, Evanescence performed on April 15, 2007 on the Argentinan festival Quilmes Rock 07 along with Aerosmith, Velvet Revolver and other local bands. They also co-headlined on the Family Values Tour 2007 along with Korn and other bands. The group closed their European tour with a sell-out concert at the Amphi in Ra’anana, Israel, on June 26, 2007, and finished the album tour on December 9, 2007.

On May 4, 2007, John LeCompt announced that he had been fired from Evanescence, and also stated that drummer Rocky Gray had decided to quit. Wind-up issued a press release on May 17, 2007, stating that two Dark New Day members, drummer Will Hunt and guitarist Troy McLawhorn, would be joining the band to replace LeCompt and Gray.[41] It was initially stated that Hunt and McLawhorn would tour with Evanescence until the end of the Family Values Tour in September 2007, but both continued to play with the band through The Open Door tour.

2009–present: Evanescence and Hiatus

In a news posting to the Evanescence website during June 2009, Amy Lee wrote that the band was in the process of writing new material for a new album proposed for release in 2010. She stated that the music would be an evolution of previous works and be “better, stronger, and more interesting”. The band played a “secret show” at the Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom in New York City on November 4, 2009, with label mates Civil Twilight. Tickets for the show sold out in five minutes. This performance acted as a warm-up for their headline appearance at the Maquinária Festival in São Paulo, Brazil, which took place on November 8.

Evanescence entered the studio on February 22, 2010, to begin recording. Will Hunt returned as drummer while a second drummer and programmer, Will “Science” Hunt, was brought in to assist in writing but ultimately did not join the band. David Campbell, who previously worked on The Open Door, was brought back to handle string arrangements, and the album was scheduled for release by the producer Steve Lillywhite. Lee later said that “Steve wasn’t the right fit” and was replaced by producer Nick Raskulinecz.

At the time the band began recording, the album was intended for an August or September 2010 release. However, on June 21, 2010, Lee announced on EvThreads.com that Evanescence had temporarily left the studio to work further on the album and “get our heads into the right creative space”. Lee also indicated that record label Wind-up Records was going through “uncertain times”, which would further delay the release of the album. The band reentered the studio in early April 2011 with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who had produced music for Alice in Chains and Foo Fighters, to continue work on the third album. It was reported that the album would be released in late 2011. Troy McLawhorn was reported to have rejoined the band as a primary guitarist after leaving post-grunge band Seether, but Evanescence’s management later stated that this was not the case.

On June 12, 2011, Amy Lee announced through her Twitter account that Troy McLawhorn was officially back with Evanescence and that the release date for the new album would be October 4, 2011. Later, on July 11, 2011 it was reported by MTV News that the release date for the album had been pushed back to October 11, and that the first single from the album will be “What You Want”. The band recorded the album at Blackbird Studio, Nashville. During an interview with Kerrang!, Lee revealed that the new album’s title will be Evanescence. Lee said that the decision for the title of the album was her love towards Evanescence. Other themes are the ocean,[52] quest for freedom and falling in love.

The Evanescence Tour began on August 17, 2011, with a show at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville. The band then performed at Rock on the Range in Winnipeg on August 20, 2011, and at Rock in Rio on October 2 alongside Guns N’ Roses and System of a Down as well as Brazilian artists Pitty and Detonautas Roque Clube. After a series of events in North America, Evanescence traveled to Europe in November to play a sold-out tour in the UK, Germany and France, with support from The Pretty Reckless and Australian band ME. Evanescence performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 11, 2011, where they played “Lost in Paradise” and “Bring Me to Life”, before again touring in North America. In February 2012 they toured Japan with Dazzle Vision, and in the same month performed in other southeast Asian countries. March 2012 saw the band tour Australia and New Zealand with Blaqk Audio. Between April and July 2012, Evanescence toured in Europe and North America, with additional stops in Africa and the Middle East.

Evanescence paused their tour to take part in the Carnival of Madness Tour alongside Halestorm, Cavo, New Medicine and Chevelle. This tour began on July 31, 2012, in Springfield, Illinois, and ran through September 2, 2012, ending in Buffalo, New York. The Evanescence Tour resumed in October 2012 with stops in South America, Costa Rica and Panama. The tour wrapped with a series of shows in England, ending on November 9, 2012, in London’s Wembley Arena. Lee stated the band plans to take an extended break after the tour, saying, “At the end of any really long tour you need to get your head in order. I think at the end of the run we’ll go on a break for a while and figure things out.”

In October 2013, Wind-up Records sold part of their catalog of artists, including Evanescence and their master recordings, to Bicycle Music Company. Bicycle’s sister company Concord Music Group will market the catalog.

On January 3, 2014, it was announced that Amy Lee had filed a lawsuit against former record label Wind-up Records, seeking $1.5 million in unpaid royalties owed to the band. In March 2014, via her Twitter account, Lee announced that she and Evanescence had been released from their record label and were independent artists.

In other Media

Lee claimed that she wrote a song for the 2005 film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but that it was rejected because of its dark sound. Lee went on to state that it was just “more great stuff [for The Open Door]”. Another song supposedly written for Narnia was the Mozart-inspired “Lacrymosa”. The producers of Narnia, however, rebutted her claim, stating this information was “news to them” and that no Evanescence music had been planned for inclusion in the soundtrack.

In 2010, Evanescence released “Together Again” as a digital download, a song created for The Open Door but later cut. The song was released to aid the United Nations Foundation in Haiti earthquake recovery efforts. It later received wide release as a digital download on February 23, 2010.

Musical Style

Critics vary in terming Evanescence a rock or metal band, but most identify them as some form of gothic band: publications such as The New York Times, Rough Guides, Rolling Stone and Blender have identified Evanescence as a gothic metal act, while other sources such as NME, MusicMight, IGN, PopMatters and Spin have termed them gothic rock. They have been compared to a variety of bands from differing genres, such as nu metal ensembles like P.O.D. and Linkin Park, gothic metal groups like Lacuna Coil, and symphonic metal acts like Nightwish and Within Temptation.[92] David Browne of Blender offers an elaborate description of the band’s music as “goth Christian nü-metal with a twist of melancholic Enya.” Adrien Begrand of Popmatters describes Evanescence as utilising “nu-metal riffage”. Adrian Jackson of My Dying Bride stated that he feels Evanescence is doing something similar to his own gothic metal group, only in a more commercial direction.[94] Other genres and influences used to describe the band’s sound include industrial, alternative metal, progressive metal,[98] alternative rock, hard rock, electronica, post-grunge, chamber pop, and heavy metal. The band’s official website classed their musical genre simply as “rock”.

Evanescence_StatementEvanescence was originally promoted in Christian stores. Later, the band made it clear they did not want to be considered part of the Christian rock genre, like fellow Wind-up Records artists Creed.[102] Terry Hemmings, CEO of Christian music distributor Provident, expressed puzzlement at the band’s about-face, saying, “They clearly understood the album would be sold in these [Christian music] channels.” After many Christian stores began to remove the band’s music from their shelves, Wind-up Records chairman Alan Meltzer then issued a press release in April 2003 requesting formally that they do this. In 2006, Amy Lee told Billboard that she had opposed being identified as a “Christian band” from the beginning.

Lee at the 2003 Billboard Music AwardsAmyLee2003BillboardAwards Background Info

Amy Lynn Hartzler (née Lee; born December 13, 1981), known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter and classically trained pianist. She is co-founder and lead vocalist of the rock band Evanescence. She cites influences ranging from classical musicians such as Mozart to modern artists Björk, Tori Amos, Danny Elfman and Plumb. Along with her contributions to Evanescence, Lee has also participated on numerous other musical projects including Walt Disney Records’ Nightmare Revisited and Muppets•The Green Album. Lee has performed collaborations with artists such as Korn, Seether, and David Hodges. Lee is also the American chairperson for the international epilepsy awareness foundation, Out of the Shadows. Revolver Magazine named Lee the #1 Hottest Chick in Hard Rock for their 2011 annual issue and she appeared on the front cover. In February 2012, VH1 placed Amy Lee at #49 in the Top 100 Greatest Women in Music. In April 2012, Lee won the Best Vocalist honor at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards. In 2013, Amy Lee was named the 2012 Rock Goddess of the Year in the Loudwire Music Awards and the Hottest Woman in Music 2013 in the NME Awards.

Early Life and Education

Amy Lee was born in Riverside, California to parents John Lee, a disc jockey and TV personality, and Sara Cargill. She has a brother named Robby and two sisters, Carrie and Lori. There is a rumor that Lee had a younger sister who died in 1987 at the age of three from an unidentified illness. The song “Hello” from Fallen has been reported to have been written for her late sister, as well as the song “Like You” from The Open Door. Lee took classical piano lessons for nine years. Her family moved to many places, including West Palm Beach, Florida and Rockford, Illinois, and eventually settled in Little Rock, Arkansas, where Evanescence started. Lee graduated from Pulaski Academy, a private school in Little Rock, in 2000. She briefly attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro to study music theory and composition in 2000 but dropped out to focus on Evanescence.

In an interview on AOL Music, Lee said that the first songs she remembered writing were called “Eternity of the Remorse” and “A Single Tear”. The first was written when she was eleven years old and wanted to become a classical composer, and the second was for an assignment when she was in the eighth grade.

Career

Evanescence

Founding

Lee co-founded the rock band Evanescence with guitarist Ben Moody. The two met at a youth camp after Moody heard Lee playing Meat Loaf’s “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” on the piano. Within a month, the pair were playing acoustic sets at Arkansas book stores and coffee houses, and they eventually recorded two EPs, Evanescence EP (1998) and Sound Asleep EP (1999), selling them at various local venues. In 2000, Evanescence recorded the longer EP Origin. This demo contains three songs from the debut album Fallen and was written by Lee and Moody: “Whisper”, “Imaginary” and “My Immortal”. Whereas “Whisper” and “Imaginary” were altered before being included on Fallen, “My Immortal” is virtually unchanged, apart from additional string arrangements. A later band version of “My Immortal” was made available for download for those who had bought an official version of Fallen through their web site, but required that a CD checker program also be downloaded for verification before it would play. The band version was included on later copies of Fallen, notably the Brazilian, Bolivian, and Argentine editions.

On October 22, 2003, Moody left the band citing “creative differences”. In an interview several months later, Amy said: “…we’d gotten to a point that if something didn’t change, we wouldn’t have been able to make a second record”. She also said “We’re finally a real band, not just Ben and I and a few others thrown together”. Ex-Cold guitarist Terry Balsamo replaced Moody in the band, both on guitar and as Lee’s writing partner.

Appearance

Lee has a recognizable fashion style, marked by her occasional use of gothic make-up and taste for Victorian-styled clothing. She also designs many of her own clothes, including those worn in the music video for “Going Under”, and the dress worn for the cover of The Open Door and the dress she wore to the Nobel Peace Prize concert in 2011. After she designed the dress she wore at the 2004 Grammy Awards, she chose Japanese designer H. Naoto to make it for her. She at one point had a piercing on her left eyebrow, which is visible on the cover of Fallen. In an interview with VEVO stylized, Lee showcased and explained her fashion style, commenting that she’d rather make her own clothes because it’s hard to find what she exactly wants elsewhere. In an interview with AOL, Lee stated that her daily style is very different from when she performs; pointing out that she was wearing “something flowery” during the interview. She explained that her on-stage wardrobe was meant to preserve the atmosphere of the songs and complete the image. In another interview, she stated that when the band first started performing, she would wear corsets to avoid diluting the band’s public image, but has gradually become more comfortable with her own style. Her current on-stage style is often characterized by boots, a simple black tank top, a long skirt and various ornaments and accessories.

She has stated on a number of occasions that she would never flash her breasts or engage in other publicity stunts that would draw attention to herself. Further, in the music video for “Everybody’s Fool”, she aimed to mock such artists by suggesting that celebrities who use sex to appeal to an audience are, in fact, merely peddling “lies” (the unifying theme of the music video). Many fans praise Lee for her refusal to emulate other celebrities by using sex appeal in her music.

In 2006, Blender listed Lee as one of the hottest women in rock alongside such singers as Joan Jett, Courtney Love and Liz Phair. In 2013, Lee ranked first in NME.com’s “Hottest Women in Music” award.

Solo Album

During an October 2008 interview for Spin.com, Lee noted that she was writing new songs, possibly for a solo album project. Citing influences in folk and Celtic music, she says her current writings feel like she is going back to her “really old” roots. She gave no potential release date, but said of her reason for this new direction, “I need to show that I’m more than a one trick pony.”

Lee stated during an October 2008 interview with The Gauntlet that she did not know whether or not she would begin a solo career, saying that she was “at a point where I don’t know what is next.” She noted that Evanescence was still together as a band but that she found touring to be monotonous. She reiterated that she was continuing to write songs, though she did not yet know what purpose they would serve.

In a Spin interview in March 2010, Lee stated that she was “in a very different creative space then” regarding her previous work on new material, and that while she wrote some songs that were good, nothing from those efforts would be included in the band’s album Evanescence, which was released on October 11, 2011.

Other Projects

In 2000, Lee sang on two of former Evanescence keyboardist David Hodges’ songs: “Breathe” (The Summit Church: Summit Worship) and the unreleased “Fall Into You”. She performed backup vocals for “Missing You”, a song on Big Dismal’s 2003 debut album Believe, and sang backup vocals on two songs with ‘supergroup’ The Damning Well, though her vocals were taken off the final release due to record label issues. Lee later performed a duet with her then-boyfriend Shaun Morgan on the track “Broken” for Seether’s 2004 album Disclaimer II. The song was also featured as part of the soundtrack for the 2004 film The Punisher.

In 2004, Lee claimed to be working on music for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but that the music was rejected by the studio for being “too dark.” However, the producers of Narnia stated that Lee was never asked to compose any music for the film, whose score was written by Harry Gregson-Williams, and that “No Evanescence music was planned for the soundtrack.” While there was some speculation that one of the supposed songs had been cut and used in several tracks of The Open Door, Lee stated this was not true except for part of it being used to segue into the last track of the album, “Good Enough”.

Lee became the American chairperson for Out of the Shadows in 2006. This organization is an international foundation with the goal of providing education about epilepsy. Lee’s younger brother, Robby, was previously diagnosed with this condition. The singer also made a brief guest appearance in the music video for Johnny Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” in late 2006. As each celebrity featured in the shoot was allowed to choose what they would be doing for the video, Lee chose to appear laying flowers on a grave. Her scene was recorded at Trinity Church in Manhattan, during which she wore a black velvet coat that previously belonged to Tim Burton.

In February 2007, MTV released MTV Unplugged: Korn to television and radio, in which Lee is featured during the song “Freak on a Leash”. The song was also released as the first single from the album. In November 2007, VH1 produced a mockumentary in the style of Behind the Music, titled Rock Band Cometh: The Rock Band Band Story, to promote the video game Rock Band. Lee was one of the celebrity cameos featured on the show.

In June 2008, the National Music Publishers Association presented Lee with their 2008 Songwriter Icon Award, which “recognizes outstanding songwriters for their personal achievement.”

For Walt Disney Records’ September 2008 release of Nightmare Revisited, Lee sang a remake of “Sally’s Song”. The album contains new material and covers of songs from the original Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. Lee performed live renditions of “Sally’s Song” during the October 17 Nightmare Before Christmas re-release premiere in Hollywood, and for an October 13 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In 2011, Lee covered “Halfway Down the Stairs” for Muppets: The Green Album, and in 2012 covered “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” for the tribute album We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash.

Personal Life

Lee was in a relationship with Seether singer Shaun Morgan from 2003 to 2005. Lee wrote a song, “Call Me When You’re Sober”, about him; it was released as the first single from The Open Door.

Engagement and Marriage

Lee revealed during the live broadcast of MuchMusic’s January 9, 2007, episode of Live at Much that she had become engaged the prior evening. She later confirmed on EvThreads.com that Josh Hartzler, a therapist and 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 posted on EvThreads that she is “now officially Mrs. Amy Hartzler.” Lee announced to social media on January 18, 2014, that she was pregnant.

Lawsuit against Wind-Up Records

On January 3, 2014, TMZ reported that Lee had sued Evanescence’s label, Wind-up Records, for $1.5 million in unpaid royalties. In March 2014, via her Twitter account, Lee announced that she and Evanescence had been released from their record label and were independent artists.

Agnes juga kesekian kalinya meraih penghargaan di Anugerah Musik Indonesia, untuk tahun 2011 ia memenangkan kategori “Artis Solo Wanita Terbaik”.

Pada bulan September 2011, Agnes berduet dengan penyanyi senior Amerika Serikat Michael Bolton pada lagu “Said I Loved You…But I Lied”.

Lagu tersebut direkam sebagai lagu tambahan dalam album Bolton bertajuk Gems: The Duets Album khusus untuk edisi Asia. Agnes juga berduet dengan Andy /rif sebagai penyanyi tamu pada lagu “Berkelana ke Ujung Dunia” di album keempat Presiden RI Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono bertajuk Harmoni.

Pada tahun yang sama, ia merilis singel berjudul “Rindu”, lagu ciptaan Eros Djarot yang aslinya dipopulerkan oleh Fryda pada tahun 1995.

Keartisan dan Citra

Agnes merupakan penyanyi solo yang mengusung jenis musik pop, R&B, dan hip-hop. Ia mengakui Aretha Franklin, Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Fantasia, dan Beyoncé sebagai pengaruh besarnya dalam bermusik.

Agnes juga sering dibanding-bandingkan dengan artis Amerika lainnya, terutama Britney Spears dan Christina Aguilera. Meskipun demikian, cukup banyak pula penyanyi Indonesia yang terpengaruh Agnes dalam hal gaya bernyanyi dan penampilan. Penyanyi dari negara tetangga, Stacy, bahkan mendapat julukan sebagai “Agnes Monica Malaysia” akibat pengaruh Agnes pada dirinya.

Agnes memiliki jenis suara sopran dengan jangkauan yang cukup tinggi. Untuk lagu-lagu bertempo cepat, Agnes memadukannya dengan koreografi yang energik di atas panggung, sehingga sering mengharuskannya untuk tampil secara lip sync.

Selain sering berlatih vokal, Agnes juga rajin melatih gerakan tari dan stamina untuk menunjang penampilannya. Sampai saat ini, Agnes merupakan satu-satunya artis Indonesia yang memiliki grup tari pribadi yang bernama Nezindahood. Penari-penari dalam grup tersebut dipilihnya melalui audisi sejak penggarapan album pertamanya pada tahun 2003.

Seiring dengan profesinya sebagai penyanyi, Agnes juga mengembangkan kemampuannya dalam bermain piano dan menulis lagu. Bakat Agnes dalam mencipta lagu mulai terbentuk saat menggarap album Sacredly Agnezious, saat ia menciptakan tiga lagu termasuk singel “Godai Aku Lagi”.

Agnes merupakan artis yang selalu membawa tren baru di kalangan anak muda, khususnya dalam hal penampilan, baik itu pakaian, aksesori, maupun tata rambut. Melalui penampilannya di atas panggung, video musik, dan sinetron, Agnes telah memopulerkan berbagai gaya berpenampilan, mulai dari punk rock hingga harajuku. Namun demikian, Agnes juga tak jarang dituduh tidak orisinal dan cenderung kebarat-baratan. Agnes menanggapi komentar mengenai dirinya tersebut dengan berkata:

Tidak ada satu pun di dunia ini yang “original” tanpa pengaruh dari hal lainnya. Saya beruntung lahir dan dibesarkan di Indonesia (specifically Jakarta) di zaman ini di mana kita (dalam hal ini Indonesia) sangat terbuka dengan proses globalisasi. Budaya Timur dan budaya Barat saling memengaruhi, ya begitu keadaannya. Intinya, adanya pengaruh antarbudaya jangan dianggap sebagai “budaya yang berbenturan”, tapi anggaplah sebagai budaya yang “saling melengkapi”. Ambil yang baik dari budaya-budaya tersebut dan tinggalkan yang negatif. Jadi, ya, saya ini adalah produk Indonesia dan produk era globalisasi.

Ketertarikan Agnes dalam dunia busana mendorongnya untuk menekuni bisnis clothing line yang mendapat sambutan bagus. Menurut survei yang dilakukan majalah Cosmopolitan pada tahun 2010, Agnes merupakan penyanyi wanita terseksi di Indonesia.

Ia juga sempat meraih Kartini Award dari Wanita Indonesia Tanpa Tembakau (WITT) dan World Health Organization (WHO). Menurut Ketua Umum WITT Nita Yudi, “Karena Agnes adalah artis muda berprestasi yang enerjik, dan pastinya tidak merokok.

Semoga dapat menjadi contoh yang baik bagi generasi muda.” Agnes juga merupakan selebriti yang tertutup mengenai kehidupan pribadinya di media. Ia sering diterpa gosip menjalin hubungan khusus dengan sejumlah nama, namun tak satu pun yang ia konfirmasi.

Agnes juga telah terlibat dalam sejumlah kegiatan sosial.

Ia melakukan kegiatan penggalangan dana untuk membantu para korban bencana, seperti di Sumatera Barat dan Situ Gintung. Agnes juga membantu menggalang dana senilai lebih dari Rp 400 juta untuk Persis, tim sepak bola Surakarta, melalui konser yang diadakan di Diamond Convention Center di Surakarta.

Awal bulan Desember 2011, Agnes Monica mengadakan konser amal “Save A Teen Charity Concert”, konser yang diadakan untuk membantu remaja-remaja yang putus sekolah.
