Alexander Burke is an established music professional having worked as a film and television musical writer and composer, music supervisor and director, a musical performer as well as actor, producer, and writer.

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).


After graduating from Columbia College Chicago, Alexander decided to move back to Los Angeles where graduated from the University of Southern California’s film-scoring post-baccalaureate program and then quickly found work in television (being hired as part of the house band for the television pilot for Robert Townsend’s talk show “Night of Townsend” on TBS) where he met Eban Schletter (the composer of “Sponge Bob Square Pants”) and Grant-Lee Phillips (who was also part of the house band) and that relationship led to Alexander playing in Phillips band.  These relationships lead to Alexander and Eban being asked to perform with, and open, for Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields’ band “Dead Man’s Bones”.


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…

My phone just reminded me that exactly one year ago today I had tagged along with @jon_schnitzer to @morbidofest to promote @hauntersthemovie there I met @alexnoyer and @bubblegumandblood and drank weird blue beverages filled with dry ice.
