Biography

Anthony Setola has displayed the playing possibilities of bass guitar in a variety of settings. From demonstrating for a major amplifier manufacturer, to giving clinics with bass legend Jeff Berlin. He can be seen supporting the Washington D.C. regions top artists, in addition to his session work both as a player and a producer.

Now he allows us to get even closer to some of what lies beneath his prodigious ability, to a project and vision he calls Interstellar Appeal. There is an incredible depth you will encounter in this debut release. With distinctive nods to the likes of Stevie Wonder, Francis Rocco Prestia, and Sly Stone. This record has caught the attention of "bottom feeders" everywhere, including NYC's groove titan Reggie Washington (Branford Marsalis, Steve Colemen, Me'Shell Ndegeocello).

It's really neat when a person can push the parameters of an instrument. It's amazing when that level of playing is situated in a geography that paints all the parts with as wide and generous a brush as each of them could gleefully be. All you have to do is close your eyes and listen.
