Pete Giannini is the drummer for fast-growing female fronted rock band Chaser Eight. A few years back he was struggling with a terrible addiction, but through the love and support of his band mates and family he was able to overcome his problem. He is now living clean and sober while creatively contributing to Chaser Eight’s new EP due out at the end of September.
North Haven, Connecticut rock quintet Chaser Eight craft epic and moody rock that recalls the grandeur of David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, The Doors, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Killers, and even Lana Del Rey. The group boasts bluesy and richly expressive vocals, mesmerizingly textured guitar playing, and a dynamic and imaginative rhythm section. Their latest EP, Up and Up, is emotionally expansive, from the soulfully uplifting “Take Me Higher” to the gorgeously gloomy “Addict.”
Chaser Eight has opened for The London Souls and The Radiators, and has headlined sold-out shows in Connecticut and New York City. The quintet’s music has been played, and is in heavy rotation, on Connecticut radio stations 99.1 WPLR and Radio 104.1. Currently, the group is featured in the pitching catalog of an esteemed film and TV synch-licensing publishing house, APM Music. The band recently made its TV debut, performing two songs on WTNH's Connecticut Style Stage 8. In addition, *AUDRA* had the remarkable distinction of auditioning three songs to The Rolling Stones’ iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham.
