'Evanescence' Singer Sues

Our Very Own Label Is Our Worst Enemy

EXCLUSIVE

0102-amy-lee-getty
Evanescence founder Amy Lee is waging war with her longtime record label ... claiming the label all but ruined the group and in the process chiseled them out of more than a million bucks ...  TMZ has learned.

The singer claims Wind-Up Records hatched a plot to sabotage Evanescence by replacing its promoters with a bunch of idiots who ended up torpedoing the group with lame ideas.

Lee says to add insult to injury the label has withheld $1.5 million in royalties.

The label is mum.

I'm glad Evanescence is with Concord now. Ev deserved so much better than Wind-Up since they've worked their asses off on every record, as well as every tour.

It's / It's 2014. Nobody with real talent needs a record label anymore. Make a hit song and you will make money.

Saw Evanescence perform live years ago. They are a studio band nothing more. To hold Amy Lee or her band high as a great live perform is a joke. If she was a great live singer or more creative in song writing the band would not have this problem. Several female artist have made it on their own with out a band problems. Tori Amos, Pat Benatar and Joan Jett. If her fans stop buying her songs don't blame your record label blame yourself. Sign to a new record label problem solved.

The problem with music today is everyone is talking about her looks. She is an amazing artist period. She has more talent then 99% of the artists out there today.

Evanescence writes great songs and makes beautiful music. Amy also has a great voice, and is a respectable musician. If this is true, I hope the band gets what they deserve, and I hope they find a better label. WE LOVE EVANESCENCE!!!

Amy Lee is one of the best singers in the world.
Wind up Records is an immature company that doensn't let the artists to express themselves , even if Evanescence brought them millions from their sales!
Evanescence will go on with another company! They just rock!
