path: Home / About the Show * W.G. Snuffy Walden

The original Theme and Music for "The West Wing is done by W.G. Snuffy Walden (see his website). He has done approximately 35 -40 TV series in the last 14 years, starting with "30 Something" and "The Wonder Years" beginning in 1987 stretching to "The West Wing" and "Once and Again" this year. He does (write and/or produce) the music for "Providence," "Felicity," "Roswell," and Darren Starr's "The $treet" (canceled early December 2000) on the one hour drama front. He also does "Drew Carey" and "Norm" and one new half hour sitcom coming out in January on NBC called "Three Sisters." And he did "Sports Night" with Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme.

He has two other composers that work with him on three of these shows. The rest he seems to do by himself.

He is releasing a new solo CD on Windham Hill called "Music By...." early in February. It contains two bonus tracks from "TWW" on it. There is a suite of music from "The West Wing" as well as the Main Title. There are also soundtracks and collections he has done for various labels.

Information on the availability of his music is available on The Official W.G. Snuffy Walden Website. People can contact him through the site.
