Evanescence is the first EP by Evanescence. It was produced by Ben Moody and Jason Jones, and released by Amy Lee and Ben in January 1999[2][4][3] at a concert at Vino's in Little Rock, Arkansas, as a printed CD-R. The EP sold for $15 each, and sold out that night. The EP was sold to friends and family as support before it got sold at Vino's, in December 1998.

The EP is very rare; only 100 copies were made.

The cover features the sculpture Angel of Grief by William Wetmore Story, also found on the cover of Nightwish's Once and The Tea Party's The Edges Of Twilight.

Amy claimed in a interview in October 2011 that this EP was put together by fans.[5] However, this is not true, as it's featured as part of Evanescence's discography on Bigwig's website,[4] the band's first label before they signed with Wind-up.
