: Hi. I am in a band that has a record contract but it has gone sour and we are now sueing the record company. I would love to stay working as a bass playing and really do not want to have to get a regular job. Can anyone give me some advice?? Apart from trying to get another deal or join another band that is signed what about session work, studio work etc. What other options are there for someone who has recoreded an album with a top producer and toured etc?? I would really love to still make a living from playing but I am not sure on how to continue and what options and routes are available to me and how to go about it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hi, If you can read music like you can read english then you have a slim chance of making it as a studio musician. The problem is, hooking up with a studio(studios) that dont already have a list of musicians they are comfortable with. But if you know somebody.....who knows. You could sell you time as a bass teacher. some stores dont require a degree to teach. You could try working out of home while you search for a working band. Put your music out on your own. There are many avenues today, just look. well, good luck........john
