Producer, Session Musician
Chris Boot studied a BA Hons in Professional Musicianship Drums at BIMM Brighton and even though he graduated with degree in drum performance, he has continued to expand his skill set into areas such as studio production and songwriting in order to become even more versatile and employable as a freelancer.
Here’s Chris showing off some drum and bass chops alongside Lone, with his track “Backtail Was Heavy”.
As an already very experienced session musician, Chris has lots of great advice for anyone looking to break into this line of work.
“Be the very best you can be – it is luck that will get you in the door but only by being good will you get repeat work, and that’s how you’ll make a living. Being personable, friendly, technically minded and positive are just some aspects of what it takes to be successful as a session musician. Things will get difficult at points, but with persistence and a positive attitude there will be pay-offs.”
