Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!"
Sarantos will offer a wide variety of music including soft rock, pop, country, dance along with some some international flavor. Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby.
Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos' father passing away two years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life's ups & downs, the timing is finally right. Sarantos main motivation, however, is to raise money for charity. 33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!
"This music will have diverse styles that will delight everyone's taste but will appeal to a core group of people in the 18-55 year old age range," says Sarantos. "I personally believe that music is important to all people across the world and age is not a factor. It's finally time to pursue my life long dream! I realized that I can raise a lot more money for charity with my music than with any other business I currently own and run."
Life always kept Sarantos busy and delayed his dream of inspiring people with his songs and lyrics. Music, however, was always on his mind and Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs!
The 1st song from the music CD and the 1st music video will be released worldwide on January 2nd 2014.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each song include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The website, Melogia (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
