Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale and Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee recently opened up about their upcoming tour together during an interview with Revolver. When asked why they like working with each other, Hale stated that Lee has a unique charisma that is unteachable, as Alice Cooper once told her.
For those of you who may not know, two powerful female rockers in the music industry have been working together on and off for quite a while now. They have joined each other’s live performances several times, advocating for gender equality in the rock scene.
They collaborated for the first time on a song named ‘Break In‘ during the coronavirus lockdowns. It was a cover version of a track from Halestorm’s second studio album, ‘The Strange Case Of…’ which was released on April 10, 2012.
In addition to their duet, Lzzy Hale joined Amy Lee for the vocals of Evanescence’s third single, ‘Use My Voice,’ from the band’s fifth studio album, ‘The Bitter Truth,’ released in March 2021.
Since they are a power-duo now, it was inevitable for their bands to announce a co-headlining tour, which they revealed a few months ago. Their ‘Evanescence + Halestorm’ US Arena Tour will kick off on November 5, in Portland, OR.
Before their tour together, both frontwomen gave multiple interviews regarding their artistry. During a recent one, they were asked what they enjoy so much about singing together.
Lzzy Hale answered first and praised her fellow musician by saying she has an extraordinary talent. Furthermore, she revealed that Alice Cooper once told her that charisma cannot be taught. In Lee’s case, she has it naturally and effortlessly, which is one of the many reasons why Hale likes working with her.
When asked why she likes playing with Lee, Hale said:
“With Amy, she’s an otherworldly talent. Alice Cooper once told me that you can’t teach charisma, you can’t teach that intangible thing that makes you great, and Amy has that; she was born with it. You can teach people how to sing, but you can’t teach people that.
When Amy sings, she reaches into your soul and squeezes it and doesn’t let go until the song is over and you’re like, ‘What just happened to me?!’ For me, from a technical standpoint, it’s effortless.“
