Biography

Chaotic Soul is a sound universe of good vibes and soul searching truth. The relatively new band has accomplished musicians from the Western Mass area that bring out traces of everything from Soul Live, Jamiriqui, Stevie Wonder and the Meters. John Currier, founder and main songwriter of the group is at the top of his game. His credits include, playing and co-writing for Boston based band, Organism and sit ins for the Boston Horns. His self produced project, Mashed Buhdda, is a drum and bass, electronica outfit, that has drawn international acclaim. Eric Brandoli has spent years with the seven piece funk band, Brotherman, of Amherst U-Mass fame. He has since spent time with various bands including J-Cat, that recorded a live CD with Staind right before they hit it big. Clarky "Chopper" Siebold is the foundation and groove master. Voted best drummer in the Pioneer Valley, 2002, by the Valley Advocate. His accomplishments include, playing with Jeff Pitchell and Texas Flood, Jazz vocalist Montenia, Ethel Lee and Shwa alongside John Currier. Nick Cressotti is a funk bass, monster. Long time "gun for hire" is ready to settle in for the ride of his life. His accomplishments of late include playing and recording with Jimmy Mazz, John Clark and touring band, Maxxtone. The singer, Eric Brandoli has been on a quest for enlightenment from an early age.
"My parents, both working musicians, told me to find another path because it's just not financially plausible" After service in the Marine Corps, including action in the Gulf and many years as a Firefighter, eventually injured on the job, Eric explains "There is a higher power that wants me to sing, wants me to write music. I'm finding my way and I want everyone that wants to explore Who They Are, to come along".
