(Part2) Passion, Music and Going After What You Want w/ Musician Sarantos!

February 17, 2016


Welcome to part 2 with Sarantos! We dive into the creative process (artists hear music in their head), also we talk fears (money, failure, rejection), the battle between the purists and the commercial artists, and more! 

Sarantos' passion for music began before he knew what the word passion meant. He began writing lyrics as a small child while "people watching" in his mom and pop's family diner. That is to say, when he wasn't working and helping his mom and pop at the diner as a cook, dishwasher, waiter or cashier! In those days, he always had a pad of paper, loose-leaf sheet, or even a napkin to feverishly write down lyrics. As technology evolved, his iPhone, iPad, and computer have gladly become the recipients of those lyrics. Do you have any idea how long it took to digitize all those songs??

Sarantos love of music is profound. His lyrics express his love of people and the world around him. While life is fraught with many challenges, it also offers many blessings. His songs span an entire spectrum of emotion. And lest he takes himself too seriously, Sarantos has a pretty wicked sense of humor. You may recognize this in some of his more lighthearted lyrics, facebook or twitter posts, and even in a random music video or two...

Sarantos' unique sound has been 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 & pop music!"

Plus, how to handle jealousy! (Our own and from others)
