Melanie Penn – ‘Immanuel’ album review

It’s rare that an artist makes their initial splash onto the recording scene through releasing a Christmas project, but with Immanuel (buy), Brooklyn, New York native Melanie Penn has done just that. Interestingly enough, Penn enjoyed a tenured career on the national Broadway touring stage before penning her own songs in an official capacity—a fact that might find some surprised, considering her deep, velvety vocal work. Incorporating rich instrumental textures and reverent melodies, Immanuel is an entirely original soundtrack that seems to fit in perfectly with the old, familiar story. Written from the perspectives of Mary, Joseph, The Wise Men, The Innkeeper, and so on, this musical nativity truly comes to life, even in this modern-day setting. Penn has really created a work of art that should be cherished for years and years to come.
