5. I can see the value in using these tracks to practice with but do you really enjoy playing gigs with backing tracks?

In a perfect world I would rather play with real talented musicians hands down any day. Unfortunately we live in a world based on business and budgets so a lot of the gigs out there are very scaled down these days. Club owners,Hotels/Resort F&B managers want a good sounding musical option that is affordable but also sounds professional and high quality. All these factors have brought me to this point of creating these tracks and keeping myself employed and gigging. 

6. I'm a vocalist and I love your tracks but can u make a track in a different key for me?

No problem, plus a lot more, please check out the CUSTOM section and let us  know  your  needs.

7. Whats up with the bundles?

The bundles are stylistically grouped tracks that are bundled (zipped).They are a great way to save!
