Don’t forget to order your copy of Sentimental Journey! It will be released this week, and no one wants to miss out! E! has been streaming the album here if you are interested in giving it a listen. Emmy has also released another single to her youtube account. Give it a listen below!
I’ve added photos from her vignettes for Apple Blossom Time and Nobody Knows You to our gallery… be sure to check both of those out! Lastly (at least lastly about the album!) reviews are starting to surface for the album… and it sounds pretty good. Read on!
Like her 2007 album, Inside Out, Sentimental Journey was produced by Stuart Brawley. To capture an authentic early 20th century sound, it was recorded with a live band in just three days, using vintage mics and mastered to tape.
And, it works. You could actually almost mistake this album for one raided from your grandma’s collection of 78s and LPs; the production, arrangements and vocals are all very retro.
Unlike most current performers who cover American standards, Rossum delivers them not in a modern style, but rather much as they were first performed. Rossum brings graceful and nuanced voice to her personal, but still era-authentic interpretations of the songs, renewing them for a fresh listening experience. (source)
This track, “These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)” has been sung by Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, and the glorious Michael Bublé. She gives this a feminine, airy, and sultry spin that makes this a cover I will go back and listen to time after time. It piques my interest in her as a musician, and certainly makes me want to purchase her album! (source)
