Alexander Burke is everybody’s favorite film and television composer, music supervisor and director, musical performer, actor, producer, and writer. To know him is to love him, and his energy is contagious.

Born and raised in Southern California, Alexander’s experience accompanying improvised comedy lead to him becoming the youngest musical director for the renowned Second City. Alexander was subsequently asked to be the musical director for “iO Theater 25 Anniversary Concert DVD” that included performances by Mike Myers, Amy Poehler, Tim Meadows, Andy Dick, Andy Richter and Rich Talarico (Rich later hired Alexander to be the composer of “Frank TV” on TBS – which would be his first TV gig).

During this time, Alexander became friends with Monique Powell (the lead singer of the band “Save Ferris”) through his neighbor Abby Travis (the bass player for “The Bangles”) and ended up playing on records for both of them and later joining the band “Save Ferris.” Alexander was a member of “Save Ferris” when they opened for Gwen Stefani at Irvine Meadows and for Mexico City’s infamous Ska Festival.
