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!”

Rhett Daneka: Soaring Through Life From Aviation To Rock Music
Born and raised in Baytown, Texas, Rhett Daneka initially started college at Texas Tech after graduating from Robert E. Lee High School in 1986. However, his interest in aviation led him to overcome financial challenges to pursue his dreams.
Within less than five years, Rhett earned his ATP and became a Gold-Seal Flight Instructor, eventually becoming Chief Flight Instructor at Hooks Airport. Later, he dedicated himself to piloting an Air Ambulance, rescuing premature infants from small towns, and transporting them to top neonatal hospitals.
In the early 2000s, Rhett transitioned to self-employment, discovering a passion for singing. After a decade-long hiatus from music, Rhett reignited his enthusiasm in 2020, assembling a top-tier team of musicians, producers, a renowned studio, and a vocal coach to fulfill his creative ambitions.
Nowadays, Rhett Daneka is fronting Daneka Nation, his musical project. The band has released six singles since January 2021 and is now busy making more music for people everywhere.
Listen to his most recent track, “Fight Song,” on Spotify, which has garnered over 300,000 streams so far.
Undoubtedly, the lyrics of “Fight Song” convey a message of empowerment, resilience, and determination, highlighting the strength to beat the odds and follow one’s goals. Besides, this tune exists with the purpose of keeping your spirits high.
Somehow, it’s necessary to listen to the guitar chords and passionate vocals behind this rockish track to rise up stronger and not let problems defeat us. Indeed, Friedrich Nietzsche’s wisdom holds weight: “Without music, life would be a mistake.”
In short, Rhett’s journey from a pilot to the stage shows that perseverance can make your dreams come true, no matter when you start.
