Chris Isaak will take the stage at Indian Ranch, the popular Webster, MA venue on Saturday, June 30, 2012. Chris Isaak put out his first album, Silvertone, in 1985. He has released 14 records since then, including his breakthrough 1989 triple platinum record Heart Shaped World.
Isaak’s music has been featured in many films. Two songs from his debut album, “Gone Ridin’” and “Livin’ For Your Lover,” were featured in David Lynch’s 1986 cult classic Blue Velvet. In 1999, his song “Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing” was featured in Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. He also penned the theme song for The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. In addition to Heart Shaped World, three of Isaak’s records have gone gold or platinum, including 1993’s San Francisco Days, 1995’s Forever Blue, and 1996’s Baja Sessions.
His latest album, 2011’s Beyond the Sun, is an homage to the legends of the past. Recorded through Vanguard Records, this collection comprises songs recorded by Sun Records artists such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. Tracks on this record include Cash’s “Ring of Fire” and Presley’s “I Forgot to Remember to Forget.” “I’ve always wanted to make this record,” says Isaak. “There's no way to do it exactly like they did it, so you've gotta give a little bit of your own take on it.”
