BEHIND THE VOICE
It’s all Amy Lee’s fault.
In 2004 Archie saw Evanescence on a janky bar TV on holiday in Portugal, and learned instantly that music was the only thing that made him feel truly alive. Having been having singing lessons since the age of 6, he soon found a new passion in “alternative” music, especially symphonic metal, and became inspired by the women fronting the genre beyond anything else. Performers like Floor Jansen, Tarja Turunen, Melissa Bonny, Dianne van Giersbergen, Simone Simons, and other too numerous to count still make up the majority of his inspiration today.
