CHECK OUT EMMY ROSSUM'S ALBUM SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY TO BE RELEASED 1/29/13




I want to introduce you to a talented actress and singer Emmy Rossum. Emmy stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy and her album Sentimental Journey will be released on January 29th. She has a fantastic and stellar voice and each song on the album represents a month of 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." 



Sentimental Journey Track Listing:

  1. “Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
  2. “The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
  3. “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
  4. “These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
  5. “(I’ll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time” (Albert Von Tilzer, Neville Fleeson)
  6. “Summer Wind” (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
  7. “Many Tears Ago” (Winfield Scott)
  8. “All I Do Is Dream Of You” (Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed)
  9. “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” (Jimmy Cox)
  10. “Autumn Leaves” (Joseph Kosma, Jacques PrĂ©vert)
  11. “Things” (Bobby Darin)
  12. “Pretty Paper” (Willie Nelson)
 My Thoughts:


Emmy's voice is fantastic and many of the songs were familiar to me and is a collection of covers of classic songs from the 1920s-1960s. She is extremely talented and I could feel her emotions in every song on the album. I listened to the album while driving home from work and they are a big change from the songs presently on the radio. This is definitely not for the younger generation but my in laws would love and appreciate the songs on the album. My favorite song on the album was Pretty Paper witch was released around the holidays and was perfect for the season. So preorder a copy of the album on itunes or Amazon and take a break from everyday life.

TV Appearances:

  • Emmy will performing a track from Sentimental Journey on Access Hollywood Live on January 25th.
  • Emmy will also be appearing as a guest on Conan on January 28th, Chelsea Lately on January 29th, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on February 6th.

  15. Cool concept of the 12 months - not sure why you say it's not for the "younger generation", since Emmy is 26...but I guess "younger" is a relative term...:)
