Starting a new business? Get 40% off our accountancy services for 3 months! 😀


Every month we catch up with one of our clients to feature there business and spread the word! This month we’re talking to Joe Blackie from Alpha Backing Tracks, a business that creates and produces – you guessed it – backing tracks.

We caught up with Joe to hear about his company and what they do.

Tell us a bit about Alpha Backing Tracks

We launched in January 2016 and aim to provide the highest quality backing tracks to professional singers, acts and entertainers!

I have a lot of experience in the karaoke industry and creating a new website specifically targeting customers wanting professional quality backing tracks was an area I thought I should expand into.

How do you create the tracks?

We have a network of long-standing session musicians and producers that work for us. We have guys that play sax, trumpet, harmonica and ukulele as well as the more popular instruments like guitar and piano.

Have you got any genre you enjoy creating in particular?

We’ve done some children’s TV themes just recently which took some of us back to our childhoods and that was great fun! We produce tracks from all musical genres but we’ve enjoyed making some obscure reggae stuff lately that customers have asked for.

Do you have any other hobbies outside of the business?

Strangely enough most of my hobbies revolve around music: I love going to karaoke and I recently started piano lessons myself at the age of 36 – there’s a musician in me struggling to get out!

What made you pick The Accountancy Partnership?

I was impressed by the reviews that other businesses had written and the straightforward service appealed to me.

Is there any member of the team in particular who’s given you good accounting and business advice?

Henry Pugh was a big help in answering all my queries when I signed up. I had signed up elsewhere to begin with but I cancelled and joined The Accountancy Partnership because the service seemed better and Pandle, the free online bookkeeping software, was another good bonus.

How has the service you’ve received been?

All good so far after almost 6 months of trading!

If you want to catch up with Alpha Backing Tracks you can head to their website or find them on Facebook!
