This is year #4 of the journey and Sarantos is having a blast. Working hard every day to get better at lyric writing, tighter with instruments, improving vocal pitch and range, making creative videos with cool stories and hidden messages and writing fictional book chapters that parallel the songs is a lot to do. It’s not easy. Love never is! There have even been a few occasions when Sarantos has been overwhelmed. Sometimes it seems like he’s running on this hamster wheel of life fast on the road to nowhere while making absolutely no progress at all. Everyone has been there.
This song is ultimately about perseverance and not knowing when that “lucky break” is coming. Does it matter though? Living life every day wearing a smile and doing what one loves should be the goal. Why? Why ask why? Many questions run thru our minds on a daily basis. Everyone is passive aggressive whether they realize it or not. How often are there moments of supreme confidence followed by chasms and valleys harboring the lowest points in our lives? Sometimes one just never knows why good or even bad things happen. Stuff happens for the strangest of reasons sometimes. Explanations, excuses and rationalizations can range from divine intervention to a lucky break to connections or to the disguised ruler of our planet – money. If one believes in themselves however, eventually someone else will too. And, when you least expect it, life can change in a heartbeat! It really can.
“This Tom Petty-like rock song is about hanging in there,” says Sarantos. “You never know. I remember so clearly in my own life a powerful lesson I learned – how quickly a crummy day can turn into one of the most memorable moments in your life. Life’s hard. I get it. I agree. Though I’m usually a very positive person, I’ve certainly had my share of ups and downs. I vividly remember during one of the worse times in my life, when I was playing Wilson Philips’ Hold On maybe 10 times a day being super sad and hating life. After a few days, I decided I’d had enough and was going to pick myself up off the floor. I got motivated. I planned out my week including getting back in shape, studying, personal time etc. I hopped in the shower thinking this was Day #1 of my new life. Suddenly my day turned with a simple phone call. All the plans I had just made got thrown out the window! Just like that, my entire life changed forever. If you hang in there, you just never know what waits for you right around that corner!”

Sarantos and fans chose this charity for this song – ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. They offer support services for children with cancer from the moment of diagnosis extending through treatment and beyond.
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.”
Since 2014, Sarantos has won over 36 awards with Akademia LA Music and Beat 100, while also being nominated for the International Music & Entertainment Awards and the Hollywood Songwriting Awards. Even without ever using a professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, “Dreamer” & “What If I Never See You Again” have spent many months 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 has hit the top 10 twice.

Believe it or not, 16-year-old frontman Riley Schmelzer has a project called No Signal that is looking to break through in 2019. He has released a pretty rockish 10-track EP entitled, ‘Seat Of Dreams’. Hailing from Colorado, the indie artist was immersed in music from a young age, and today we can see the fruits of his hard work and artistic passion. Interestingly, this EP explores current events in the world. I feel that it’s like a wake-up call to start fighting for the planet and all of its inhabitants. Almost all these tunes shine due to his thought-provoking lyrics. Proof of this can be found in the 100K streams he has earned lately. Follow him on socials for more exciting announcements.

WATCH: Greg Hoy & The Boys’ “Brilliant Jerk!” Music Video
Hailing from San Francisco, California, Greg Hoy isn’t a newcomer in the music industry. On the contrary, his rockish songs have been featured on TV shows like “One Tree Hill” and MTV’s “Made”. It is important to highlight he runs a record label called 30 Peak. Also, under the moniker of earhopper he produces all kind of tracks, including soundtracks.
On this occasion, he is promoting a music video. So, if you grew up listening to punk-rock bands, then you’ll enjoy hearing the new single, “Brilliant Jerk!”. Frankly, I would dare to say he centers around a great rock-n-roll punchy drumming and a splendid guitar work too. Moreover, the rebellious rhythm matches perfectly with appealing visuals.

Texas-based Musician Mark Winters Drops An Acoustic Jam, “Copper Queen”
Here’s an acoustic jam for the weekend! The new Mark Winters single “Copper Queen” makes us realize that soft rock is absolutely delightful. Hailing from Sugar Land, Texas, he puts all his energy and love for the guitar melodies. Moreover, I’m really impressed by his poetic style, inculcated in early life thanks to his grandmother. For some reason, his voice soothes your body and mind, bringing positive vibes right from the start. Recently, Mark revealed that his new album ‘SlipStream’ drops in August and monthly music videos are coming our way… Stay tuned!

Lounge Act Jam Pushes The Boundaries Of Experimental Rock Music
Alan Tzu-yu Yang aka Lounge Act Jam is an avant-garde artist who has a special love for acoustics. This has become evident on “Pluto Waits For Nothing”, a unique track taken from his 2019 album ‘Diabolical’. One way or another, he pushes the boundaries of experimental music by mixing rockish guitar solos and crispy drums. However, what grabbed my attention is the balance he keeps between high and low frequencies of this instrumentation. Besides that, if you’re into glitchy sonic textures, then all these driving chords will help clear your mind or escape reality for about two and a half minutes.

US Rock N’ Roll Band Remember The Monsters Drop New Video For “Sink”
“Sink” by Remember The Monsters is a virtually perfect Rock N’ Roll song for today’s generation. The Arizona-based quartet create a sense of introspection with the lyrics, which appear to reference that sometimes you have to start over from scratch. This is especially so when a destructive person tries to sink you down into the abyss. In other words, as soon as your five senses perceive any uncomfortable situation, you must take action before it’s too late. Well, I really like the concept behind this effervescent rockish anthem because it invites listeners to lift their spirits. Best of all, these guys offer a high-quality music video to capture the lead singer’s raw emotions and overall performance. Watch it down here.
