In 1997 I got into Cubasis and started sequencing my own Backing Tracks. I did move on when Steinberg released Cubase 1.06 and Halion 3 but now using v5 and Halion One.

What you’ll find below are backing tracks in various formats. Midi (instruments only), some MP3 files (with added Backing Vocals). I have attached a few full versions (with lead vocal)

I have used all of the tracks on stage at some point over the years. Performing as a solo entertainer doing One Man Band (OMB). I always wanted a title after my name.

I’ve personally sequenced about 95% of the midi files, the balance I’ve pulled down from the WWW. These I have re-sequenced/rearranged to suit my style and Key. Where possible I’ve added the persons name/location/source responsible for the original sequencing.

Not all songs are necessarily in the verse/chorus order as the original artist/song rendition. Again I’ve sequenced/re-sequenced the song to suit my Key/presentation. That might mean a different mix of instruments/sounds and musical style. Any body is welcome to use and or rearrange for their own use.
