Song Writing & Custom Backing Tracks

Our song writing team has a vast amount of experience around them from working with big pop acts, to theatre, record companies and agencies. Collectively we have over 100 years of experience in the industry at many levels.

Whether you already have an idea that needs expanding on, or you’re standing in front of a blank canvas, book a friendly chat with us to see what we can do for your musical progression so that we can match you with the right team member for your next career move.

Stamp your identity:

A solid, memorable backing is the backbone to every great track. If you’re tired of using backing tracks that aren’t quite cutting the mustard, then why not let Big Jam create something unique and special for you. Engineers Kevin and Ricky have been writing and releasing music since 1995.

With experience and an appreciation for all styles and genres of music, we can work alongside you, playing to your strengths, to create the perfect backing track for you – be it pop, rock, dance, reggae, you name it. A lot of backing track creation is done through a range of different software-based instruments; however, we also have access to a wide range of professional session musicians who can be readily available for your session.

Just have a listen to some of our examples to see just what we can do.

Rates

Because every track and artist is unique, song writing and backing track sessions are charged per hour. We recommend a minimum of four hours for either service.

Vocal Coaching

Big Jam Studios have always aimed to provide our talented customers with excellent vocal coaching from a range of industry recognised teachers.

We love seeing all of the performers that walk through our door go from strength to strength and thrive with the platform we provide them.

Unfortunately, in August, we parted ways with our vocal coach and are now on the hunt for a teacher that will work on a one-to-one basis with our customers providing the priceless knowledge of technique, stage presence and vocal power.

Stay Tuned!
