The SessionsArticle by Sean Mitchell // November 20 2012
There are moments in every musician’s life that involve a heightened sense of clarity. For me, that moment came on Saturday, November 17th, at The Sessions in Seattle. The Sessions, a free eight-hour seminar hosted by a panel of experts in the music industry, is the brain child of Jules Follett, photographic author of the Sticks ‘n’ Skins coffee table book.
What transpired at The Sessions was nothing short of amazing. The panel covered topics spanning the entire industry—and there was invaluable Q&A time as well. The end of the seminar was a true highlight for me, as yours truly jammed “Superstition” with guitarist Bruce Kulick (KISS/Grand Funk Railroad).
Rather than trying to explain what The Sessions is, I had a quick chat with The Sessions host Dom Famularo, legal advisor Paul Quin and creator Jules Follett. What I can say is that if The Sessions is in your neck of the woods, do all that you can to attend; it will forever change the way you look at the music industry.
