Amanda Lee (born March 13, 1992), also known as AmaLee, is an American singer and voice actress, known for her English covers of various anime and video game songs on her YouTube channel LeeandLie.

Not to be confused with Amanda Winn-Lee.

Amanda's roles include:


Amanda Lee and her works provide examples of:

  • April Fools' Day: Every year, she uploads what appears to be a new cover, only for the video to be something silly and the song rewritten to be about detractor comments that annoy her. She's addressed everything from people who say her translyrics are "wrong" because they're not word-for-word the literal translation of the original song to comments about her moving to live-action videos (even if she still does drawn ones) to complaints about her "selling out" due to having sponsorships and ads.
  • Artifact Title: "LeeandLie" was short for "AmaLee and Annalie," but her friend Annalie left the channel early on. The name stuck.
  • Author Avatar: Several of her anime covers include a version of herself in the show's artstyle, ranging from herself as one of the Digidestined in her cover of "Butterfly" to showing herself as a Knife Nut magical girl in her cover of "Magia".
  • Breakthrough Hit: Her cover of "Crossing Field." She's acknowledged this in interviews and went on to make a whole album's worth of covers from the show. SAO seems to have that effect on people.
  • Insistent Terminology: Many fans will hesitate to call her a youtaite (the term for someone who sings anime and game covers on YouTube) in the same sense that Kizuna AI is a "Virtual YouTuber" and not a V-Tuber: because her work predates the term and even people who aren't into the subculture know her.
  • Mystical White Hair: Silver hair is a trademark of hers both animated and in real life, as well as a number of the characters she's voiced.
  • Name's the Same: With Amanda Winn-Lee.
  • Vocal Evolution: It's clear that age has deepened her vocal range. Compare her original 2014 recording of "Ignite", to her 2019 cover.
