Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey Album!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Sentimental Journey, which released on January 29th, is a collection of classic covers that takes us through the American Songbook. You can get it on Amazon or on iTunes.

On Sentimental Journey, the multi-talented actress and singer brings her stellar voice to songs popularized by some of the most beloved artists of the last century.

Emmy's 12-song 'passion project' is an emotional musical journey, with each song representing a month in the year.

"Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month," Emmy explained. "Some songs were obvious fits, like Summer Wind for June, and Pretty Paper for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months."

Emmy's music was phenomenal.  Her voice is absolutely beautiful.  The music certainly reminds me of the 40's or 50's time period, where music was actually music.  The time and music was simplier and music was sung from the heart and with passion.  I was really surprised with the music, however, I really did not know what to expect.  I have already played it three times over and can't decide which song is my favorite.
