Sarantos finally releases first soft rock/pop song; insiders describe it as “emotionally powerful!”
Sarantos releases his first song "Not Where I Wanna Be" and now his fans await the release of his music video! "Not Where I Wanna Be" was one of the most eagerly awaited song debuts in the Chicago area in the last decade.
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!"
Solo music artist Sarantos has reached over 25,000 fans on Facebook and 50,000 Twitter followers without even releasing his first song yet. All this hype has made Sarantos even more excited for his music debut. The first song is titled “Not Where I Wanna Be” and was finally released worldwide on January 2nd, 2014.
Sarantos was born and raised in the Chicago area and it seems that the local communities are ready to support him. The buzz has been building for the past six months and the moment of truth has almost finally arrived. Sarantos' music has received rave reviews so far from industry insiders, and he relishes this chance to pursue his lifelong dream.
Sarantos' has a strong motivation with his musical passion to raise money for charity. 33% of any music-related sales profits are going straight to charity. For Not Where I Wanna Be, Sarantos has chosen the American Cancer Society. The decision was really simple. Sarantos' father passed away a few years ago after a long battle with lung cancer.
"This song is about turning 30 years old," says Sarantos. "It’s an exciting but also slightly depressing time in someone's life. The song is about a man wondering what he has accomplished thus far in his life. It is somewhat somber and the basic premise is that this is not the life he envisioned for himself. He feels like he has not accomplished what he wanted to by this point in his life. He is just not where he wants to be! Of course, the song can also be interpreted (on purpose) because of the charity chosen, as a song about someone struggling with a diagnosis & treatment of cancer. CANCER is also not where anyone wants to be!"
Sarantos strives to inspire people with his songs and lyrics. Music is always on his mind and Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs.
A new song will be released every 4-6 weeks to tease his fans. The CD will be released in 2014. Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a significant portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each album song include 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.
