Sarantos is not only a professional songwriter, producer & poet but also an avid comic book reader, proud nerd, workaholic, one-time owner of the Millennium Falcon, gamer and zombie killer. He loves sarcasm because it's funny. He's more of a loner than a social butterfly but he's working on it. Sarantos prides himself on not releasing robotic music. Playing live, the music is authentic and real. It has imperfections because it is human. He is always trying to sound different musically, lyrically and vocally. He doesn't want fans or critics to get bored with his efforts or sound. Sarantos music and books stimulate an overdue conversation in the always-changing music industry.
Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Sarantos has written over 3,100 songs. He always had an abnormal fascination with music, much to the expense of a normal personality development. At least Sarantos finds humor while being candid about "making more mistakes than anyone else alive!"
He underwent many personal challenges including his father passing away in 2010 after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma, chronic allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis with a stricture the size of a straw and food allergies to almost everything.
Sarantos is a proud supporter of multiple charities and donates directly to many charitable organizations!
Sarantos website is called Melogia, which is Greek for "with words" -- an apt title indeed for an aspiring singer/songwriter!
