Chris Isaak shot to prominence with the Top 10 song Wicked Game. His Gold and Platinum-selling albums feature hits such as Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing; Somebody’s Crying; and Forever Blue. More than a quarter of a century into his career, Chris Isaak has finally created the album he’s always wanted to make: Beyond the Sun, released in October 2011. As a child spinning his parents 45s in their Stockton, California home, this deeply committed artist has been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the visionary artists who got their starts there—including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis—all of them discovered and nurtured by the late, great Sun Records founder Sam Phillips. Now, at long last, Isaak has acted on this lifelong obsession, magically recapturing the transformative hepcat brilliance of the classic sides cut by these greats at Sun with Phillips during the mid-’50s, while also getting down to the heart and soul of his own deeply rooted musical identity. Isaak will be performing songs from the album, popular hits from his catalog, as well as some holiday favorites.
