Evanescence vocalist talks about Billie Eilish’s voice and songs

Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee talks about Billie Eilish‘s voice and songs. She also added how she affects her style and changing on the band’s powerful hit “Bring Me to Life” song.

She is one of the most known women vocalists in the rock music world. But she having broken down at the start of the 21st century. However, she still is the lead vocalist and songwriter for the Evanescence band. Amy Lee also appeared at a time when women were scarcely heard on mainstream rock radio and music channels. A follow-up to the Evanescence comes out with “The Bitter Truth” the group’s fourth full-length record and the follow-up to 2011’s self-titled album. They now working on some new music.

In a recent interview with Consequence of the Sound, Amy Lee reveals what she thinks about Billie Eilish’s music and more:

“I listen to all kinds of music. If I’m being completely honest, I don’t listen to rock, mostly. It’s not that I don’t like it. Of course, I do. I really love the new Bring Me the Horizon album a lot. That’s my favorite new rock album in a good while. But, my tastes are all over the place. I really do love good pop – like good, dark pop.

So, with Billie Eilish, even more than her style, which is very dark, what I really love about her is just her authenticity. She’s just being completely herself. I see a lot of things in her that remind me of myself, especially when I was younger.

I get inspired by all kinds of things, even if it’s just in the way that somebody arranged the songs. Like, ‘Oh, they didn’t end on the chorus. Why don’t we do something like that?’

She also added about their latest song “Use My Voice” song:

“My heart was just heavy with all the lies, and it still is. I just feel like there’s a lot of frustration that so many Americans share. There can’t be two truths. There has to be one. If we’re all going to unify, we have to simply start telling the truth. None of us have ever seen anything in our life-time that felt so wrong in our own country.

Lyrically, I get really inspired by stories of overcoming and people being brave and stepping forward after they’ve been through something major. I was really first inspired by a sexual assault survivor named Chanel Miller. She was in this long court trial that was degrading and messed up. In the end, she just stood up and spoke the truth of what happened to her and what it felt like, and what her experience was. It was so powerful. It just dawned on me that using your voice is powerful.”
