Recently a reader got in touch and asked me the questions that appear below. He agreed to let me publish his questions and my answers to them. Readers of my blog frequently ask similar questions and so I thought that by posting this Q & A it could be helpful to the community at large. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions you would like to ask, please get in touch!
Q: Firstly. I live 30 minutes from ------------------, so the demand for such things is prominent in my area. However there doesn't seem to be any agencies in the area that cater to session or stand-in musicians. Have you got any Idea what kind of representation I would need ((agents, managers, etc)) and where they could be found?
Q: I have heard of people contacting studios to be put on an "on-call" list of sorts. Should I submit an official press kit as I would for a full band?
Q: Finally. In your opinion, is this a rewarding career? I am willing to do anything to make it in the industry, so there isn't much that can dissuade me.
