2016 release by the Award-winning Scottish entertainer. Alan Cumming is a television and Broadway actor known for a range of work, from Shakespeare to Cabaret to X-Men Films, to the television series The Good Wife (Emmy Nomination in 2011 and 2016). Alan's second full length album was recorded live at NYC's famed Café Carlyle. Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs is a collection of songs from the theater and pop world. Backed by three musicians – Lance Horne on piano, Eleanor Norton on cello and Chris Jego on drums – Alan offers up an array of songs that have deep meaningful connection to his life. From Annie Lennox’s “Why” and Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” to Elaine Stritch’s “Ladies Who Lunch” (from Company) and Rufus Wainwright’s “Dinner At Eight.” Cumming doesn’t just perform these songs – he gently caresses and molds them into something even more intimate. His version of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” is as warm and heart-felt as you’re ever going to hear. Sings Sappy Songs is successful on so many levels, yet it is the emotion in every performance that brings it all together. If there was a Grammy Award for sincerity and passion, then Alan would have yet another trophy to add to his collection.
