  • We talk about the importance of networking when it comes to becoming a session musician
  • Build connections with record studios, as they may recommend you if artists are looking for session musicians
  • We talk about creating a showcase or portfolio of your work online so people know you are available for session work
  • “Make sure you advertise the fact that you are available for hire!”
  • We talk about what artists need to do when hiring a session musician to make sure they are prepared for the studio
  • “In the studio, be clear and direct about what you need”
  • We share some experiences of sessions that have gone horribly wrong
