When it comes to backing tracks, many of our clients find the cost in both time and money — of finding their own musicians, rehearsing them to their satisfaction, and then booking enough studio time to perform the parts to a professional broadcast standard —to be way out of their reach. Especially if they want to stay in budget. Which is why they come to us. Our Custom Backing Track deals make it far easier and quicker for them to achieve what they want without all the extra hassle.
If you have written a song and need musicians to create and play parts for the song this can be very time consuming and expensive if you don't have your own band.
We can work with a basic demo of your idea and develop it along the lines of your own preferences, influences and references to music you like which you think might fit with your song.
We create custom backing tracks from a wide pallet of live and sampled instruments, sound designed to suit a range of styles. If the budget allows we can also employ our roster of top class session musicians to add to your tracks.
