Chris Isaak put out his first album, Silvertone, in 1985 and has since released 14 records, including his breakthrough 1989 triple platinum record Heart Shaped World.
His most recent 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.”
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.
