Got Your Backings
Do you get a pang of anxiety when the casting director sends over 32 bars of a song you’ve never heard before? Do you immediately start searching through Spotify to find the original cast recording to help you get a handle on the song, only to remember that you’re auditioning to be IN the original cast?

Well take a breath, wipe that sweaty brow and relax, because here at Got Your Backings, we’ve got your back(ings).

Hook us up with that scary sheet music, and we’ll fire you back a professional quality piano backing track, complete with an outline of the melody if required.

Got Your Backings is used by West End Professionals from shows such as Heathers, Bat Out of Hell, Girl from the North Country, The Man of La Mancha and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.

Prices start from as little as £10, so what are you waiting for?

Get your backings, with Got Your Backings
wait... who are you?
Jamie Ross is the human behind Got Your Backings, and he is filled with immediate regret that he started writing this in the third person.

I’m a professional Actor Musician, moonlighting as a Musical Director and Arranger. As a performer I have worked on the UK Tour of Footloose: The Musical, the world premiere of Mythic: A New Musical at the Charing Cross Theatre, and the acclaimed revival of The Secret Garden at the Barn Theatre.

I was nominated for an Offie for my work as Musical Director on Miracle on 34th Street at the Bridge House Theatre and I have worked as an Arranger for Stage Coach and the MAD Trust.

After years of being the go to guy any time a friend needed help with a piece of music for an audition, I decided to open up my services to a wider audience, I’m friendly and approachable, so feel free to get in touch or confront me in the street regarding your needs!

Well don't take my word for it, read these testimonials.

“I’ve used Got Your Backings for years & every job I’ve secured is thanks to Jamie.

The speed he can churn them out at whilst maintaining immaculate attention to detail is incredible. I was once asked to learn a 10 minute song I’d never heard before in 4 hours & Jamie had it notebashed & sent back to me within a half hour. It secured me my first West End job.

In an industry where it’s all about taking the ‘edge’ I think it’s essential to have a ‘go to’ like Jamie at Got Your Backings.”

Simon Gordon – Bat Out of Hell, Girl from the North Country, Moulin Rouge

Backing tracks came back quickly and were great quality. 100% would reccomend. Jamie’s a decent bloke too which always helps.

I don’t read music and learn purely by listening, so whenever I am sent sheet music to prepare, I always find myself in a bit of a panic. Luckily I know I can always rely on Jamie to give me a concise and detailed understanding of what exactly I need to work on, be it melody, rhythm or the general feeling of a song.

What’s also great is that Jamie is able to deliver these recordings back to you with a very short turnaround, leaving you plenty of time to efficiently sit with the material.
