Deniz Seki (born July 1, 1970 in Istanbul) is a Turkish pop singer. Seki is perhaps best known for her extra-marital affair with the clarinet player Hüsnü Şenlendirici. Her reputation was further damaged by the public's interest in the estranged miss Şenlendirici.
Seki joined TRT and met composer Melih Kibar. Through him she worked with Emel and Kenan Doğulu. Her album Hiç kimse Değilim came out in 1997. Since then she has released five other music albums: Anlattim, Şeffaf, Aşkların En Güzeli, Aşk Denizi, and Sahici.
In 2006, she appeared in the movie Turks in Space.
