Sean Schafianski, saxophonist, producer, and purveyor of so many awesome RPG VGM covers, has a new EP called The Mementos Sessions: Music from Persona 5. Here’s a bit of background from him on the Bandcamp page.
Hello everyone! I am proud to present the culmination of my time at Berklee College of Music. This EP was my Thesis project and a labor of love. I’m excited to get this out into the world and I hope Persona and Jazz/Fusion fans alike get something out of this album!
Having listened to the songs, I think “labor of love” is a very apt way of describing this collection. Here’s the full track list for reference.
- Last Surprise (feat. Myranda Polk)
- No More What Ifs (feat. Claire Mulvaney)
- The Whims of Fate (feat. Maria Wirries)
- Beneath the Mask (feat. Claire Mulvaney)
“No More What Ifs” is my favorite Persona 5 tune, and I believe their cover did it justice. Speaking of covers, our own Steph Sybydlo illustrated the exceptional album art for this one. Everyone involved really brought their A game for this.
Sean’s discography explores a wide range of genres; we’ve reviewed some of it if you’d like to learn more, and even had him as a guest once on Rhythm Encounter. You can find his music on Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp. For more Persona 5 and general VGM coverage, pretend you’ve got RPGFan’s calling card and expect more news from us!
