Sarantos Gets Back to Work After the New Year with the Latest New Age Meditation Music Release in 2015 & a 2nd Studio Album

Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) January 06, 2015

Sarantos gets back to work after the New Year with the latest new age meditation music release in 2015 and a second studio album.

Sarantos is keeping his promise as he kicks off 2015 with his sophomore album. This album will reflect the style the fans and fellow musicians felt best suited Sarantos as he veers into a classic mixture of 80s rock merged with today’s soft rock and pop music. But before fans fantasize about the other songs that fit his unusual style, Sarantos thought he’d make the first song and album title a new age song. With his background as a youngster in the church choir, this Enya-type of song is a soothing and relaxing venture. Close your eyes and feel Sarantos powerful vocal reverb literally vibrate one’s entire body as fans become vested into the pure emotion of this new song.

This is a calm but inspirational relaxing song that is perfect to help erase the stress from your mind, body and soul,” says Sarantos. I think this is what heaven would sound like. Hopefully on your way to heaven, the angels will be singing this song! I’m so excited to start releasing my sophomore album and I have listened to what the fans want. By the end of this CD, I feel like the fans will know so much more about me. So here we go…

33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to the Foundation For End of Life Care.

Sarantos music has received rave reviews and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream. 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 was nominated in 2014 for 2 awards for the 2014 International Music & Entertainments Awards for the categories of Rock Song of the Year and Pop Album of the Year.

With recorded hits and new tunes waiting to be released every single month until the day he dies, Sarantos music screams success and stimulates an overdue conversation in the changing music industry. Sarantos loyal music fans continue to show their support by proudly showing off Sarantos merchandise and staying tuned into Sarantos daily down-to-earth and very real social media revelations. His songs are being broadcast every day on various radios stations around the world. Sarantos continues to do interviews around the world every single week and fans can listen in to some of them on his YouTube page. Lets not forget his funny, sarcastic, witty and genuine music videos that leave his fans not knowing what to expect next.

There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year as Sarantos strives to release something for his fans every single week. Every year until the day he dies, Sarantos will release a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a chapter from his fiction/fantasy book on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. A new CD will then be released every November.

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 and downs, the timing was finally right. And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.

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 launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude’s, Hellenic Academy, American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children’s Hospital of Chicago…

The website, Melogia (which in Greek means “with words”) was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.

*Because Sarantos wants his music shared throughout the world, fans can always find all of his songs, lyric sheets, videos and books on his website for free at He openly gives everyone the right to share his song mp3s for free with anyone they want via email or any of the social media platforms.

Sarantos Mission or Goal:

My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to:


-Dance or move to the groove

-Play the song over and over again
