Amy Lee (Evanescence singer)- Vocal Profile [3 Octaves/ Lyric-Mezzo]

Vocal Type: Lyric Mezzo Soprano
Vocal Range: 3 octaves and 1 semi tone (Eb3-E6)
Vocal Pluses: Instantly recognizable voice, with its smooth and sweet colouring, that is well supported and technically good. This helps Amy Lee hold belted notes for periods of time, without wavering in pitch, and produce a consistent tone.

Amy Lee's midrange is delicate, and with a smoky timbre and sensitive disposition- My Immortal.

Belted notes are resonant, rounded, and mixed well when pitched at the upper extremes of this part of the range. The tone produced is impressively darker than the rest of the range and has a piercing quality that can be softened by the addition of her pleasant and quick vibrato.

The head voice is warm, powerful and resonant until E6, where, at this point, they become shrill and sharp.

Vocal Negatives: Higher belting, which forgoes mixing with the head voice, begins to strip the voice of character. Also Amy Lee's lower register can be weak and lack resonance if reached with improper technique.
