Dubgee – “Truth” is a prime example of how much of a dedicated artist he is

Doug Tree better known as Dubgee is a rapper, producer, beat maker, and label owner, from Vancouver, Canada. As an old school hip hop head, I’m so thankful that I stumbled on to his latest album “Truth”. Dubgee is a genuine artist and a true musician.

Sarantos: “The Happiest Time Of The Year” – For a warm and jubilant period of peace and goodwill

A wonderful collection of 4 original Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas short stories.

Sarantos has had quite a busy year producing 34 songs and a whole lot of music videos. Many of which led to his recently released debut 14-track album, “Not Where I Wanna Be”. The musical variety on this CD is far-reaching, as Sarantos tackled almost every genre imaginable ranging from pop, rock, jazz, rap and country. However as if this didn’t seem enough, Sarantos went one step further, by finishing up an extremely busy year with a 23-song Christmas Cd release!

“The Happiest Time Of The Year” is a wonderful collection of 4 original Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas short stories.

“This is always something I wanted to do,” says Sarantos. “I love Christmas! It is the most special holiday of the year to me and I am absolutely thrilled to release a Christmas CD. Hopefully, families will enjoy it every year for a long long time. It was quite a challenge putting together something unique like this with 23 tracks on it. Just like the best Christmas present you’ve ever gotten, I wanted to keep it a secret. I hope the fans enjoy it and I have only this to say – Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!”

As usual, 33% of any music-related sales profits from this Christmas CD are going straight to Sarantos’ chosen charity – which this time around is the Salvation Army.

“The Happiest Time Of The Year” is an absolutely beautifully recorded and sung album. The arrangements are stellar, featuring big band and full orchestra sounding backings. Sarantos slows the tempo way down and then winds it up joyously, turning the festive season into a very warm and jubilant period of peace and goodwill.

Sarantos’ album is a must-addition to your Christmas music collection. This collection of songs offers the traditional, laid-back feel that every Christmas album should embody and is reminiscent of albums from great crooners of the past. While many big stars attempt to rework and mangle Christmas songs, Sarantos chooses to showcase his talent by adding his vocals to classic arrangements, as well as proposing some of his own compositions.

It’s nice to hear someone perform songs in the classic style, not try to overly vocalize or ‘pop’ them up. Some songs are meant to be sung as they were intended, and that is exactly what Sarantos does with the help of some exquisite work by his backing choir. As someone who has spent every Christmas listening to the classics from artists like Johnny Mathis, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra. I was immediately taken on a trip through Nostalgia-land upon hearing it. If the Christmas classics appeal to you, then I would definitely recommend this album.

Some Sarantos milestones include: currently over 1.4M Social Media followers and #6 rating on Reverbnation in the pop genre worldwide. Sarantos performed at the Toronto Music Festival on May 6th to a sold out live audience. Sarantos was nominated for 2 awards for the 2014 International Music & Entertainments Awards for the categories of “Rock Song of the Year” and “Pop Album of the Year”. His songs are being broadcast every day on various radios stations around the world. Sarantos continues to do interviews around the world every single week and fans can listen in to some of them on his YouTube page. Let’s not forget his funny, sarcastic, witty and genuine music videos that leave his fans not knowing what to expect next.

In 2015 there will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year as Sarantos strives to release something for his fans every single week! Every year until the day he dies, Sarantos will release a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a chapter from his fiction/fantasy book on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. A new CD will then be released every November.
