Evanescence's Amy Lee releases children's album

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2016 at 10:34 AM

Amy Lee, the Little Rock-born lead singer for Evanescence, told her Facebook fans last December that she was “angry enough to write Evanescence’s heaviest album” after artistic disagreements with “the suits” at her former record company, but you’d never know it from “Dream Too Much,” the children’s album Lee just released, inspired by her 2-year-old son, Jack, and studded with covers of familiar songs like “Rubber Duckie,” “Hello Goodbye” and “Goodnight My Love.”

What started as a gift to her father in the form of studio time blossomed into a family affair, and the tracks are laden with ukelele, dobro and banjo from Amy’s father, John Lee; guitar, bass and harmonica from her uncle Tom, and harmonies from her sisters Carrie and Lori Lee.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
