Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey Review


I fell in love with Emmy Rossum in Phantom of the Opera. That's why I was excited to listen to her new album Sentimental Journey. I loved "Summer Wind” - it reminds me of bygone days that I would love to go back to. Emmy Rossum is so multi-talented and it really shows in this album.

 Sentimental Journey, releasing on January 29th, is a collection of classic covers that takes us through the American Songbook.
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." 


Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th.

Emmy will also be appearing as a guest on Chelsea Lately on January 29th, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on February 6th.
