Evanescence Biography

Evanescence Members:

  • Amy Lee
  • Ben Moody

Evanescence is Born

Amy Lee and Ben Moody, the founding members of Evanescence, met when they were kids at youth camp in their home state of Arkansas. Amy Lee was playing the piano and Ben Moody went over to meet her. She started singing for him and Ben Moody says he then suckered Amy Lee into joining a band with him.

Inventing Evanescence

While jamming together in Little Rock, Arkansas, Amy Lee and Ben Moody wrote a song called Understanding which got a lot of play at Arkansas radio stations. Unfortunately, no one could see Evanescence perform that much because Amy Lee and Ben Moody were too poor to hire musicians and do any gigs.

  • Evanescence means "a dissipation or disappearance like vapor."
  • When performing live, Amy Lee and Ben Moody are joined by John LeCompt (guitar,) and Rocky Gray (drums.)

Evanescence Says...
