For the past 27 years, composer Jeff Walton has been writing music for film and television.
Jeff began his musical career when, in 1979 at the age of sixteen, he recorded his first record with a group of high school friends. By 1981, The Judy’s had become a ground-breaking, minimalist, new-wave trio - playing sold out shows, opening for the likes of The B52’s and Talking Heads, and selling an impressive amount of records throughout their home state of Texas. The band released two critically acclaimed
albums, Washarama (1981) and The Moo Album (1985).
By 1987, the original members of The Judy's had gone their separate ways and while studying music at the University of Houston, Walton began to pursue writing music for film. He got his first real break in 1992 with a low-budget action movie, Fatal Justice, and soon more work followed. As of today, Walton has scored thirty -plus feature films and has written music for numerous television projects, documentaries, anime, radio, and commercials.
In March of 2014, Walton composed his most ambitious project to date, A Soundtrack for the City - an original score for a short promotional Imax-type film for the city of Houston performed and recorded by the Houston Symphony in Jones Hall.
Currently, Walton is scoring made-for-TV movies, including Deadly Shores, A Mother's Revenge, The Twin, and Unwanted Guest for the Lifetime Movie Network, working on an orchestral/electronic project, and producing a soundtrack album release for later in 2020.
