Legal name: Seth Haley
Com Truise is the stage name of Seth Haley, an American electronic musician originally from Oneida, New York, and later, Princeton, New Jersey. The name is a spoonerism of Tom Cruise. Originally an art director, he turned in his resignation prior to his first release as Com Truise. Prior to this, Seth Haley was a drum and bass DJ until he began to use the '80s style that he is known for today.
Com Truise's synthesizer-heavy production work, influenced by 1980s musical styles, was first offered on the Cyanide Sisters EP, which was initially a free download from the AMDISCS label and was reissued digitally by Ghostly International. A remix of his appeared on the Tron: Legacy Reconfigured album soon after. In June 2011 he released his first full-length album, Galactic Melt.
