Here’s a statement from the artist:
Hi! Evelyn (Coffee Date) here.
I’m so excited to finally share Hyrule Café. It’s my biggest project yet and by far the one closest to my heart. The way I see it, this album has been over 10 years in the making. I started playing The Legend of Zelda when I was 12 years old (and became obsessed), but when I first discovered remixes of Zelda music on YouTube, it blew my mind that remixing game music was even a possibility. I didn’t have access to music lessons, so I started self-teaching violin and piano so that I could play these songs that I loved so much. With a lot of practice, patience, hard work, and that spark of inspiration, it finally culminated in Hyrule Café — which to me serves as proof that dreams can come true.
I’m incredibly honored to have worked with my friends and colleagues to create six of these tracks, as well as the artwork. Dj Cutman also dedicated time to re-mastering six of my older tracks for Hyrule Café, and I couldn’t be happier with how they came out. Working on this project with a team has shown me how beautiful it is to share in the experience of creating with others and working together to make a vision come to life. It’s the effort of everyone together that makes this album what it is, and for that I am beyond grateful.
To the listeners, to the team, to my friends and family, and to whoever else reads this: from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for making this dream a reality.”
