Chicago singer-songwriter, Sarantos Melogia’s music has received rave reviews so far and he relishes this chance to pursue his lifelong dream. His unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as a hypnotic and mesmerizing mix: “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 has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music has always been in his blood. It was always a passion and much more than a hobby – as he has written over 2,000 songs!
Sarantos will be finally releasing his long-awaited and eagerly anticipated debut solo album during 2014. Having undergone several personal challenges with his 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 through life’s ups and 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!
Sarantos Melogia released his first song called “Not Where I Wanna Be” on January 2nd this year. The music video was released on Jan 9th. 33% of all profits generated in any way from this song will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his upcoming CD as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The first 12 charities chosen for each song, includes 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.
