“It was a huge honor receiving ConcernedApe’s message indicating he was a fan of the series and asking if we would consider producing a volume dedicated to Stardew Valley,” reflects Scarlet Moon’s Jayson Napolitano. “I almost feel bad that we turned things around and put him to work, but I must say having the personal touch of the composer and creator of Stardew Valley makes this volume all that much more meaningful. We hope fans enjoy it and continue to enjoy the series long into the future!”
“As a long-time fan of GENTLE LOVE, it’s been an honor and a pleasure to collaborate with them,” comments Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone. “I believe this is a deeply relaxing and beautiful album.”
