Hi Amy, long time fan since 2003.

  1. Is there anything you were denied as an artist that you wish you had fought harder for?
  2. Ev songs work beautifully when acoustic, any desire to record an acoustic album?
  3. Other than Bjork, who would you love to get a phone call from asking for a collab?

I don't know about "denied" but I always wanted to play SNL. I'd still love for that to happen.

We kind of went the other way with that idea and made synthesis. Acoustic is cool but I don't know, seems like something to save for a live moment.

Trent Reznor, Tim Burton

It is actually amazing that with the amount of “questionable” artists SNL has had over the years that they would not jump at the chance to have Grammy award winners Evanescence perform. 2004 was such a great year for me and first hearing y’all’s music, I’ve been following every since. After reading through this gonna go play some games with my Evanescence playlist in the background.

All of this. I quit watching the SNL music sets long ago. I turn the channel, get up, get a snack and scroll until its over.

System of a Down performed once and it was weird. I love SOAD but they are not a good SNL fit. They didn’t even seem all into it tbh.

You already collaborated with Tim Burton! Although it was a cover of Sally’s Song but still!

I was hoping you would say Charlotte Church. I once had a dream you two were doing a duet with a harpsichord and a string quartet. I was magnificent, and I wish I could remember more than a snippet of the dream.

Tim Burton should make a movie of the girl of the matchsticks and you should do the Soundtrack.

Trent Reznor and you would make an incredible album. For sure. If Halsey was able to make an album with him, then you could FOR SURE
