San Diego, CA – February 21, 2017 – Scarlet Moon Productions is pleased to announce the addition of vocalist and lyricist Emi Evans to their roster of world-renowned talent at Scarlet Moon Artists. The partnership, under which Evans will be represented by Scarlet Moon Artists, will see her contributing to an even wider variety of videogame projects both big and small.
“The team at Scarlet Moon Productions has been a great source of encouragement and support ever since I shyly made my debut into the world of videogame music almost ten years ago,” reflects Evans. “I’m delighted to be working with them and am excited to have the chance to reach out with my voice and collaborate with so many more talented creators out there!”
Evans joins an acclaimed roster of composers at Scarlet Moon Artists which includes Hitoshi Sakimoto (Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy XII), Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana, Indivisible), Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth (Transformers: The Movie (1986), Rocky IV), Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid series, Bayonetta series) and many others:
“I’ve been following Emi’s work since her first foray into games with the Etrian Odyssey 2 arrange album,” comments Scarlet Moon Productions producer Jayson Napolitano. “It’s such a huge honor to work with her in this capacity, and we already have new projects in the works!”
Scarlet Moon Artists was launched in 2014 with the goal of bridging the gap between top game music talent from around the globe and smaller developers interested in their services. Since that time, Scarlet Moon Artists has featured talent in games including Indivisible (Lab Zero Games), Starr Mazer (Imagos Softworks), ’90s Arcade Racer (Nicalis), EarthNight (Cleaversoft), PAC-MAN Pop (Bandai Namco), YIIK (Ackk Studios) and many more.
