    If you can find a record label that wants to use real session musicians anymore…..sure.

    Sure you can, just don’t expect any positive feedback.

    These days, record labels proactively seek (or manufacture) the kinds of “artists” that they want to support. An independent musician has to be pretty spectacular (or very pretty) to get noticed, and preferably already have proven success playing at bars and the like to large audiences.

    Music is a hard way to make a buck. I was at it for years. Still make music out of a need for artistic expression, but it’s no way to make a living.

    If you have some good songs, and a good demo, and you’ve played gigs, and people like your music, and the label thinks you might sell records… Or you want to be a session musician, maybe.

    Labels don’t sign up ‘prospects’ and wait for them to produce something. And they don’t care about your ideas or how good you sound in your bedroom or how great your friends think you are. If you’ve not written any songs and at least had the initiative to record a demo, why should any label care?

    Of course, if your name is Jonas Hellborg none of this applies.
