Sarantos just released a new song called “The Silence Doesn’t Bother Me.”
According to Sarantos, “The song is about being comfortable in the silence of your art not being well-received. Regardless of whether it’s a movie, song, book or painting, the artist is in a very real sense naked and exposes all personal vulnerabilities when their art is released into the public light.
No artist ever creates something out of nothing without pouring their heart and soul into it, viewing it from every angle, and ultimately thinking it is a masterpiece. Critics and fans might not always agree however but that doesn’t mean everyone is not entitled to their opinion either. There is freedom of expression in the world today and that’s ok.
Artists need to overcome their fears and grow comfortable with the silence if and when it comes. At one point, there will surely be silence whether it’s failed art today or a failure to recapture the glories and heights of the past. Maybe there is silence because a lover or a fan does not want you anymore.”
“This is a song about silence,” says Sarantos.
“My initial intention when I wrote the lyrics was to think about my first live performance. I was of course very nervous. The song taps into that but then also reaffirms that eventually he decides that even if the crowd hates him and doesn’t clap or cheer, the silence won’t bother him. He will finally be free because he no longer cares what they think. The rules are gone as he finally lets his true colors show. He has been waiting for this moment all his life. His music will play regardless of what they say! Of course there are several hidden meanings to the lyrics as they can also be applied to any art form and even interpreted as a once famous artist who no longer can get back on top and is left alone in silence.”
By the way, 33% of any music-related sales profits from this song go straight to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Their mission is to save lives by fighting to prevent and cure ovarian cancer. They also work to improve the quality of life for survivors.
