Sentimental Journey by #EmmyRossum Video and Review

Emmy Rossum’s passionate voice takes you to a new place with each song on her new album ‘Sentimental Journey.’  Although the album title song is not my favorite on the disc, I love the way she transports you into the different world of each song.  One can imagine that if watching her perform live, she would be very descriptive in her movements as she sang the story told in each song.

Emmy recently signed with WB, but she’s been acting, singing and writing for a while now.  She started singing as a child and in a world of synthesized music, it’s a breath of fresh air to hear a modern day singer belting out classic songs from a period of simpler times.  Her album is full of songs meant to guide you along a sentimental journey of song for each month of the year that she chose.  Each song is a remake of classic songs by Doris Day, Edith Piaf, May Blooms, Frank Sinatra and more.”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.”

They definitely elicit feelings of a simpler time and she seems to lift one’s mood with the passion in her voice.  I enjoyed listening to her album, and have loved reviewing it (listening multiple times to ensure I got a good taste), but what I look forward to the most is when she does an album with her own songs.  Although she does an excellent job with these songs, I believe that her voice has a range that just wasn’t quite explored with this album.  “Sentimental Journey” is just the beginning for Emmy Rossum.
