Overview

Singer/actress Emmy Rossum is an opera-trained singer best known for her work in the Showtime series Shameless and the 2009 film version of the stage musical Phantom of the Opera. Her 2007 debut album, Inside Out, featured a handful of dreamy, atmospheric original songs that framed her vocals in a kind of glossy mix of adult contemporary and new age pop. The album was an ambitious way to kick off a music career and proved Rossum to be a talented singer with a bent toward left-of-center pop aesthetics. On her 2013 sophomore album, Sentimental Journey, Rossum takes a somewhat more traditional if no less ambitious approach and delivers a series of standards from the '20s through the '60s. Conceptualized around the idea of taking her listeners on a journey through a calendar year, each song was picked to relate the emotions or general feeling about its accorded month. Essentially, Rossum has crafted an old-timey album of American popular song that once again showcases her trained vocal chops and knack for relating a song's emotionally resonant meaning. Included are such songs as "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover," "I'll Be with You in Apple Blossom Time," "Autumn Leaves," and others. Though somewhat reverent in tone, Rossum does employ some stellar backing musicians here, including Giulio Carmassi who, aside from adding some roiling piano accompaniment, also plays various horns, vibes, and melodica. The result is that while Rossum's style lands firmly in a cabaret, Broadway mold, the album has a looser, jazzier feel than one might expect from someone raised on opera and musical theater.
