(Press Release) Today, Amy Lee, the Grammy award-winning co-founder and lead vocalist of Evanescence, released a new Amazon Music Originals family album, Dream Too Much, as an exclusive with Amazon Music.

Recently, Rolling Stone caught up with Amy to discuss the new project and debut the audio for the title track. The album has also received coverage in People, The Huffington Post, and Entertainment Weekly, who just premiered the video for "If You're A Star."
Joining Amazon’s growing library of original children’s and family music exclusively streaming on Prime Music, Dream Too Much is a collection of 12 songs that encourage children and families to sing along together. Inspired by Lee’s son and her own musical upbringing, the album features guest appearances by several family members, including backing vocals by her siblings, and instrumentals by both her father and uncle.
“Our focus when developing originals is to provide unique collections that Prime members can’t find anywhere else,” said Steve Boom, VP of Digital Music for Amazon. “Amy Lee’s versatility as an award-winning rock vocalist gave us an opportunity to rethink traditional children’s music and create an album that can be enjoyed by every member of the family—we can’t wait for Prime members to listen.”
“This album is very personal to me. My husband and I had our first baby in 2014 and he has been the center of the inspiration for this children's album,” said Amy Lee. “Every song on this album has a story – whether it's an original for our son based on his favorite things or a song my dad used to sing to me when I was a little girl. I can't begin to tell you how fulfilling this project has been and how proud I am to unveil it to listeners on Prime Music.”
