Dream Too Much is the debut solo studio album by Amy Lee, lead singer of the American rock band Evanescence. The children's album[3][4] was written with multiple members of her immediate family,[5] and was released through Amazon Prime[6] on September 30, 2016.[7] Videos for each song have been released via Amazon Video,[8] with the animated[9] music video for "Dream Too Much" being inspired by her two-year-old son, Jack Lion Hartzler.[10][11]

Background[edit]

Lee revealed that she had initially thought that she would not have enough time to work on music as a mother, but noticed that motherhood gave her "a showering of inspiration and fuel". Thus, Lee revealed that except for the everyday errands, she still had time to be creative and record music for Dream Too Much.[5]

Aside from the original songs written for the album, Lee also covered Ben King's "Stand By Me" (1961) and "Hello, Goodbye" (1967) by The Beatles. A writer with Loudwire noted the broader reach of these songs which could appeal to adult listeners as well.[5]
