Chicago singer-songwriter, Sarantos Melogia, whom we have proudly reviewed on numerous is back with his third single, ‘Back And Forth’, in a series of 11 songs, each dedicated to a different charity. In fact Sarantos’ has a strong motivation with his musical passion to raise money for charity. 33% of any music-related sales profits are going straight to charity. For “Back And Forth”, Sarantos has chosen the American Lung Association. The decision was really simple. As well as losing his father 2 years ago, Sarantos has battled asthma the last three years and he knows that this is a disease that affects millions of people around the world.
Sarantos who was born and raised in the Chicago area has a dedicated passion for music and has written over 2,000 songs already! The buzz around his musical and donating activities has continued to build and has quickly spread around the globe. After the United States, Sarantos’ music is now avidly followed in Japan, Philippines, Israel and Mexico.
Sarantos who will be finally releasing his long-awaited and eagerly anticipated debut solo album during 2014, has decided to release a new song on the first Tuesday of every month to tease his fans. The full CD of his recent music will be released on November 18th 2014.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a significant portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each album song include 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.
“Back And Forth”, the 3rd music video in the series, has now been released worldwide. The video shows a glimpse into the sarcastic and playful nature of Sarantos, as he says that: “This song is a smooth and intense pop song, about a man going back and forth about love and being ultimately indecisive. He just cannot make up his mind and his mood swings carelessly.”
I think it’s because of Sarantos’ silky-smooth vocals and the up-tempo music that makes me constantly think of summer days. This latest effort fits like an old pair of sneakers, comfortable and perfectly molded to your feet. No new ground is broken here, no new sounds to push the envelope of rock, just another great song to fit into a collection of Pop musical gems assembled by one caring songwriter.
As he works his way to concluding his album, Sarantos has been releasing a batch of songs with great melodies, diverse lyrics and terrific arrangements. The styles vary quite a bit, all held together by Sarantos voice, and the focus is on the music as a whole rather than on some star. Because the real star here isn’t Sarantos, it’s the songs, and that’s how it should be.
“Back And Forth” is quality all the way. Listen, enjoy, watch the video and lend a hand to charity.
