     Tommy Walter began his career in 1995 as a founding member of the critically acclaimed band Eels. As the first group to sign to Dreamworks Records, the band toured the world in support of their release Beautiful Freak and the alternative rock hit 'Novocaine For The Soul'. At last count, the album has sold well over a million copies worldwide. In 2001, he released 'Humanistic', the Abandoned Pools debut on Extasy/Warner Brothers. The album referred to his leaving behind a seemingly carefree upbringing in the L.A. suburb of Westlake Village to pursue a career in rock, after studying French horn, theory & composition and film scoring at USC and then the University of the Pacific. That dream had its roots in Walter's childhood love of pop and rock music, beginning with the Star Wars soundtrack and Prince, then growing to include '80s U. K. new wave bands, indie guitar rock and cutting-edge electronics, all of them apparent on Humanistic as well as his Universal Records album, Armed to the Teeth.

    That first album went on to sell over 100k, thanks to the Modern Rock hit, "The Remedy" and tours with Remy Zero, Garbage, Lenny Kravitz, Billy Corgan and A Perfect Circle. Produced by Tommy and Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Clinic, Erasure), Armed to the Teeth once again showcases Walter's ability to combine the macro and the micro, contrasting despair with world situations and personal affairs. The third album, 'Sublime Currency', is currently in production.

    Over the years, Tommy has been mixing and producing various projects and has recently been actively writing for television.
