Take a trip through the American Songbook with #SentimentalJourney

I just received a copy of Emmy Rossum’s 12-song Sentimental Journey, and I am in love!

Emmy Rossum

I never knew Emmy Rossum was so talented.  Did anyone else know she was a singer, or am I the only one who was in the dark on this?

I have been listening to this CD daily, and these songs are so fun and just bring me back to another time.  My favorite so far is Nobody Knows When You’re Down And Out, but I really do love all of the songs.  It was hard to pick a favorite, but that particular song just feels like it fits me right now.  Things might be my second favorite…you really have to hear these and you will love them!

Emmy’s fun and perky voice just brings a really great vibe to these songs, and they are sure to be a hit in any collection!  If you want to check out a sample, take a peek at the video below featuring the song, These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You):

More about Sentimental Journey

  • 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 us 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.
