Seth Haley, known by his stage name Com Truise, is an American electronic music producer and synthwave artist[1] from Oneida New York, who now resides in Princeton, New Jersey. The name is a spoonerism of Tom Cruise.[2] Originally an art director, he turned in his resignation prior to his first release as Com Truise. Prior to that, Haley was a drum and bass DJ who has released music under the pseudonyms Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, and Airliner.[3]

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[4] 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.[5] In Decay was the immediate full-length followup in 2012. Com Truise's songs are represented by Downtown Music Publishing.
