My name is Anton DeFade and I'm a bassist from Pittsburgh, PA.  Welcome to my website! I feel extremely privileged to be able to travel the world and make music with some incredible musicians in all sorts of musical situations.  Thanks for taking some time to check out my site.  

I like to record because that’s like perfecting a moment where performing live is creating a moment
