Chris Isaak Tickets for Sale

Chris Isaak clearly loves the reverb-laden rockabilly and country of Sun Studios. In particular, he transfers the sweeping melancholy of Roy Orbison's classic Monument singles ("Crying," "Oh, Pretty Woman," "In Dreams") to the more stripped-down, rootsy sound of Sun. His stylized take on '50s and '60s rock & roll eventually made him into a star in the early '90s, thanks to the hit single "Wicked Game."

Christopher Isaak (born June 26, 1956) is a U.S. indie rock, pop and rock and roll singer and songwriter. He signed a contract to Reprise Records in 1984 for his first album Silvertone. Isaak released his first album, Silvertone, on Warner Bros. in 1985. It was critically well-received, yet it didn't sell. Two years later, he released Chris Isaak, which managed to scrape into the Top 200 album charts. After its release, the singer began an acting career with a bit part in Jonathan Demme's 1988 film, Married to the Mob; he would later have parts in Wild at Heart, The Silence of the Lambs, and A Dirty Shame, as well as starring in his own situation comedy series for the Showtime cable network.

He released his best-known song in 1990: "Wicked Game" from the album Heart Shaped World and also from the film soundtrack starring from the David Lynch film Wild at Heart and from the 2000 film called The Family Man. The video for the song, directed by Herb Ritts, is also well-known: shot in black and white, it stars Isaak and model Helena Christensen rolling on the beach, holding each other, and whispering in each others' ears.

In 2001, Chris Isaak stared on his own television show called The Chris Isaak Show. It aired from March, 2003- March, 2004 in the United States on the cable television network Showtime. The show featured Chris Isaak and band playing themselves with the episode plots based on fictional accounts of the backstage world of Chris Isaak.

Chris Isaak's circle of business acquaintances may include hot '90s icons like David Lynch, Jonathan Demme, Keanu Reeves and Bridget Fonda, and his face may appear on the cover of such up-to-the-minute fashion magazines as Elle, but his music comes from the same territories Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, and Ricky Nelson explored long ago.
