The Walkmen

Biography

All five members of the Walkmen were born in the 1970s and spent their childhoods in Washington, DC. Singer Hamilton Leithauser and organist Walter Martin are first cousins and grew up across the street from one another. All but bass player Peter Bauer went to the same high school. Each listened to many of the same bands, went to the same shows and hung out in the same places handed down from generation to generation.
