From a very young age, Eban Schletter had a
hobby of making Super 8 films and scoring them
himself in an extremely lo-tech manner. He spent much of his after school time at the piano either writing his own music or figuring out piano
renditions of his favorite songs and movie themes. In high school he was asked to be the drummer for a hardcore punk band The Missionaries, and soon found himself drumming for various Bay Area bands such as Kwik Way and Speed Queens.

Meanwhile, Eban's friend Michael Moreira, who
at the time fronted the band The Undesirables,
offered Eban the chance to demo some of his
instrumental ideas on a cassette 4-track, in the
process teaching Eban the basics of recording.
The two eventually played together in the band
Twitch (Eban on bass, Michael on drums).

In 1989 Eban became the drummer for San
Francisco rockers Stone Fox, with whom he
performed in drag under the name of "Debbie"
(to preserve the "all girl" nature of the band)
until 1991 when he went to law school at the
University Of San Francisco. After passing the
California Bar Exam in 1993, he moved to Los
Angeles. Although he found it difficult to find
employment as a lawyer, he did find work as a musician.

In 1996 he landed a job composing music for
HBO’s “Mr. Show with Bob and David.” His work
there won a CableACE award and an Emmy
nomination. Since then, Eban has been consistently working in films and television.
