Early life, education and career start
Josh grew up in California, relatively out of the limelight. He developed a love for music at a young age, but did not pursue it as a career. Instead, after graduating from high school, he enrolled at Arkansas Baptist College, where he earned a degree in psychology.
ABC is a historically black university that has been in operation since the late 1890s. Several celebrities hail from the college, including Louis Jordan, Harry Kenyon, and Michael Dyer.
He graduated without much thought and later completed his certification to become a psychological counselor. He then moved to New York where he started working as a therapist, as well as being one of the home of the music industry, an avenue he could pursue as a side job.
Hartzler was introduced to Amy Lee by a mutual friend, although they didn’t start out as romantic partners. Instead, the two remained close friends for several years, with his empathy and sincerity hitting a positive note within Lee.
As the two grew closer, he offered her plenty of advice and positivity—she later credited him as the inspiration for several Evanescence hits, including “Bring Me to Life”— inspired by their first meeting – and “Good Enough” which appeared on their debut album “Fallen”. “Bring me to Life”. He brought ease and comfort to him, even if it was the first time they were introduced. She felt life in him, which took her out of the many internal struggles she had to deal with at the time.
Ultimately, his connection to Evanescence would help him connect with other notable personalities in the music industry.
Demonstrating his skills as a songwriter, he eventually teamed up with former “American Idol” contestant Chris Daughter when he released the song “What about now?”, which is one of his most notable hits.
He later teamed up with producer and musician David Hodge for the album called “Musical Demonstrations Part 1”, noting his songwriting skills after Josh was recommended to him by bandmate Amy. David had also become famous as a member of Evanescence, working primarily as a vocalist and keyboardist in the band. Josh is credited with many of the songs on the album.
Josh also collaborated with his wife on the family album called “Dream too much† The album was released through Amazon Prime Music and was aimed at children. He wrote two songs for the album that also featured Amy’s father and sisters. Although the two have collaborated several times, he does not write music for Evanescence.
Wife – Amy Lee
Amy Lee formed the rock band Evanescence with guitarist Ben Moody while they were at a youth camp. The two started out as a musical duo and independently released several extended plays (EPs). After that, they recorded another EP called “Origin”, which contained songs that would later come on their debut album.
Evanescence’s first full-length album was released after being signed to Wind-up Records, and was highly successful, selling over 17 million copies worldwide. The band won two Grammy Awards in the same year, and continued to release successful albums for the next year and a half.
Although Amy is mainly associated with Evanescence, she has also done many collaborative projects as a solo artist. She has worked as a musician for “Muppets: The Green Album” and “Nightmare Revisited”, and has released music with artists such as Seether and Korn.
She has also composed music for , and contributed songs to projects such as “War Story” and “Voice from the Stone”. Her contributions to the movie “Indigo Grey: The Passage” led her to win a Moondance International Film Festival Award. In addition to music, she is also an advocate of epilepsy awareness, often in collaboration with the Out of the Shadows foundation.
Before Josh hooked up with Lee, it was known that she was in a relationship with Seether singer Shaun Morgan from 2003 to 2005.
After they broke up, she started dating Josh and the two stayed together for two years before announcing they were engaged – they married a few months later and honeymooned in the Bahamas. Seven years later they had their first child. The pair share Christian beliefs, with Amy confessing how proud she is to be a Christian, but later confirming that Evanescence no christian band†
Hartzler has been praised many times by his wife, not only for being an inspiration and a good husband to her, but also for his ability to write songs. He continues to share his love of music with many and often attends events where his wife performs.
