Thirty-two-year old Rumer (Sarah Joyce) was raised in England and Pakistan, but her sound reveals a deep connection to the heyday of the early ’70s singer/songwriter era, along with shades of Broadway, ’30s jazz, and gospel. After years of unfailing effort, she is beginning to reap the rewards. Her debut album, Seasons of My Soul, reached No. 3 on the UK charts and was certified platinum. Rumer joins Michael Feinstein to talk about Judy Garland, Burt Bacharach, and old Hollywood, all of which inspire her to perform a few tunes from the Great American Songbook along with her own songs.
