Session Musician’s Career Survival Guide To The Pandemic
The current pandemic has effected everyone working in the music industry, and while closed venues and cancelled tours grab most of the headlines, things are also difficult for session musicians. Here one session drummer offers some suggestions for getting through the pandemic with your career intact.
In this latest post on MusicThinkTank, contributor Eddie Vessey breaks down some tactics for how sessions musicians can endure the industry lockdown caused by COVID-19.
“The best kind of work you could possibly offer as a session musician is remote work. Not only is this more reliable and enables you to land much more work, offering this kind of work is future proof. This means you’ll be much safer if an event like coronavirus reoccurs.
Remote work essentially means you can operate from the comfort of your home or wherever you happen to be, with absolutely anyone around the world. It doesn’t matter where you live, as long as you have an internet connection.”
