Alec Marken is the lead singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist of Deep Stirrings, who loves to play music that stirs you!
Alec is a long time singer/songwriter/guitarist/actor/dancer/choreographer/ballroom instructor/model/emcee/concert producer/activist, who believes in mixing arts and activism. Some of his tunes touch on his hopes for a world with more peace, justice, and awareness...such as the a capella song Rescue My Family, a plea for compassion and for recognition of human rights.
He also likes to dabble in comedy via music (his Santa song) and some standup.
Deep Stirrings is an eclectic Folkrock band, with 7 members (lead vocals, backup vocals and harmonies, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, acoustic bass, keyboard, fiddle/violin and African drum), who loves to play everything from our originals - which cover a range of style and dynamics- to favorite Folk, R&B, Jazz, Pop, Swing, Rock, Blues, and Irish covers. They're fun!!!
Favourite performances have included Folklife (Seattle), Bands & Bellies Peace Concerts (music/Bellydance showcases), international festivals, Denis Kucinich presidential campaign, World March For Peace (SoCal main event in downtown LA), Costa Rica, Ireland, and many festivals/causes/cafes/pubs/interesting venues around Southern CA.
