    Hi Justin,

    My experiences have shown me how informally the music industry can operate for a band situation, but I have not been involved in any extensive session work yet, and am curious if finding this kind of work is often as informal a process.

    I am wondering, is a resume too formal a tool for helping to find session work? If no, what kind of format do producers, etc. want to see? Some kind of multimedia kit? A nice website?

    Thanks

    I think it's far to formal. I've never seen one handed over, nor have I ever been asked for one. People just generally Google your stuff and find a website with some credits, and you're done.

    That makes sense. Thanks!
