One of Amy Lee's two sisters, fans know her for collaborating with Evanescence several times.

Along with Lori Lee, Carrie provided the background vocals for Call Me When You're Sober.[1] She also wrote the screenplay for the What You Want music video. Carrie was present for the making of the What You Want video, and this is what Amy said about it:

Vin1.jpg She's a writer, so I was like, "Would you just sit here with me and listen to the song a couple times and just tell me what you see?" She just started saying things that were right on. She was like, "This should be in New York. You guys need to do something different, this song feels different." And she started talking about running across the Brooklyn Bridge, and it being where I live, and I was like, "Oh my God, this is great."[2] Vin2.jpg

Everybody's Fool was inspired by Carrie's fascination with pop stars such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Amy said that Carrie, who was eight at the time, started to dress as the two superstars and that it angered her.[3]

On June 19, 2011, Carrie uploaded a video on YouTube (under the username "PatootyBear") dedicated to her father, John Lee, for Father's Day.[4]

Carrie provided backing vocals for Amy's children's album, Dream Too Much, on the song I'm Not Tired.[5]

In 2020, she and her sister Lori collaborated with Evanescence again by providing backing vocals on Use My Voice off their fifth album, The Bitter Truth.[6]

In March 2021, it was announced that Carrie has written some of the script for Evanescence's fantasy graphic anthology series, Echoes from the Void.[7] Amy revealed that Swimming Home was one of the songs that she wrote while Carrie was living with her in New York, mentioning that Carrie's room was next door to her home studio.[8] Carrie adapted the song into a story for issue #3 of Echoes from the Void.

  • "Carrie" is also the name of one of Amy's favorite movies, and the name of the first novel published by the contemporary horror, suspense, science fiction and fantasy writer Stephen King.
