Walter Meego formed in 2004 by Justin Sconza (guitar, keyboards and vocals), Pat Pellegrini, and Colin Yarck (production) in the basement of Pellegrini's house. Patrick Pellegrini left the band in 2005. In 2007, Andrew Adzemovic (guitar and vocals) joined. They released a series of EPs before their debut album, "Voyager", which came out in May 2008. The band's second full-length LP "Wondervalley" was released in November 2010 as a free download on the band's website, or as a paid download on iTunes.
Several of the band's songs have been featured on TV shows and advertisements, including ABC's Ugly Betty and the Heineken Beertender ads which aired in the spring and summer of 2008. Additionally, Justin Sconza's solo song, "Pretty Picture," was featured in the Cox Communications ad "Pod," starting in the summer of 2008. The spot was produced by Jan Chen and Lane Nakamura.
On October 12, 2011, Walter Meego's end was officially announced via the group's Twitter account.
