Sarantos continues releasing a new
song and music video every month in 2016 as he unveils his highly anticipated 3rd
album. This CD will expand on his unique signature style that merges 80s rock
with modern pop rock music. Fans and fellow musicians marvel at his humble
down-to-earth demeanor, his dedication to his mission and the wealth of free
content that continues to drop every month!
His 1st solo album dropped on November
18th 2014 and the diversity was amazing as Sarantos tackled almost
every genre imaginable ranging from pop, rock, jazz, rap and country. As a complete
surprise to his fans, one week later on Black Friday Sarantos also released a
Christmas album. This was a wonderful collection of 4 brand new original
Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas
short stories. Families will enjoy listening to this CD every Christmas season.
After his sophmore album in 2015, there was again another bombshell on Black
Friday as Sarantos released a solo instrumental CD along with a bonus cover for
the holidays. Fans wonder if there will be another surprise waiting for them at
the end of 2016??
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 won the Akademia LA Music
Awards in 2015 for Best Song (What If I Never See You Again), Best Rock Song (Easy
To Believe), Best Rock Music Video (We Accept The
Love We Think We Deserve), Best Singer/Songwriter Song (A Mission Of Heart, I

has won twelve Beat 100 song & music video awards in 2015 and 2014. Sarantos
was nominated for the International Music & Entertainments Awards in 2015
for “Rock Song of the Year” and in 2014 for “Rock Song of the Year” and
“Pop Album of the Year.” In 2014, he was also nominated for the Hollywood
Songwriting Awards for Best Unsigned Song (Are You Sure You Can Last).
Even without ever using a
professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, Sarantos song
“What If I Never See You Again” was in the top 200 on the majors list in the US
for radio airplay according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the
independent charts, Sarantos was in the top 10. He was on both these lists for
most of 2015!
Sarantos prides himself on not releasing
robotic music. In concert or on the radio, Sarantos music is authentic and
real. It has imperfections like genuine human music should. Despite the momentum and continued traction, Sarantos
still have not turned a profit since he gives away all of his songs, videos and
books for free and of course, everything costs money to make. That said, Sarantos
donated $2,000 anyway in 2015 to the various charities that were picked for
songs released so far. It's not much but every little bit counts. Hopefully
this number will continue to increase as his journey continues.
Sarantos currently has over 1.4M
Social Media followers and is rated #2 on Reverbnation in the pop genre
worldwide. Sarantos performed at the
Toronto Music Festival in May to a sold out live audience. Sarantos music has

There will be plenty of continued

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.
Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs!
Having undergone several personal
challenges with Sarantos' father passing away four 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 was finally right to start pursuing his lifelong dream.
And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for
33% of any music related sales are
going straight to charity!
Sarantos has always been inclined to
help people in need and is proud to release his music as a way to donate a
portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the
same. His fans help him choose the charity each month. Just a few of the
charities chosen so far include American Cancer Society, American Lung
Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's,
American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Feed The
Starving Children, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, The National Center
For Fathering and many more.
The website, Melogia (which in Greek
means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer
and song writer.
