Biography

American musician and actor Chris Isaak was born in Californian town called Stockton in 1956. The parents of the future singer have always loved music, especially country and rock’n’roll, that is why they had a real collection of the most significant performers’ records. Well, that is not a surprise that Chris inherited that passion to the music. He was dramatically influenced by the king of rock’n’roll Elvis Presley’s compositions. Actually later Isaac was quite often compared with him and Chris was often called the “modern Elvis”. And there were definitely good reasons for that: amazing vocals, charisma and outstanding appearance of the singer played their role. Of course, Chris Isaac did not become the second Elvis, but what is more important – he became one of the brightest and the most recognizable artists of eighties and nineties of the last century.

Isaac started his career in the band, which he had created and called SILVERTONE. The group released the debut eponymous album in 1985, but it turned out that critics were not so pleased by it; however that did not stop Chris. The artist always had an incredible possibility to work really hard and in combination with his talent and charm, these qualities brought the well-formed and expected results. Thus, the musicians changed the name of their band – from that moment it was called Chris Isaak, and only a year after listeners got the new long play, titled Chris Isaak (1986). This time the famous chart Billboard Top 200 was conquered by the band, so it became a little bit easier to move forward. Indeed, the following studio attempt Heart Shaped World (1989) managed to peak in the top ten of the chart and it was certified Triple Platinum. That long play included the well-known composition Wicked Game, due to which Isaak got his popularity among listeners all around the world.

Later the musician’s discography was enlarged by such strong albums as San Francisco Days (1993), Forever Blue (1995), Baja Sessions (1996) and many others. It is interesting that Chris found his unique style pretty fast, without even trying to copy someone else’s features. Isaak feels comfortable in rock in general, from drive and energetic compositions to surf melodies and themes. By the way, the artist has always had diverse interests, so he is fascinated not only by music. Chris took part in movies; he had a TV show that was enjoyed by the audience for several seasons. There is a good saying that a talented person is talented in many spheres. Nevertheless, for millions of listeners Isaac has always been and he remains a musician, first of all. Lyrical and a bit sad ballads are definitely his signature feature and the best recognizable manner. The singer’s sensual voice fits the emotional compositions just perfectly, and nobody can argue with that. Chris’ albums are of the highest quality – they always were and they surely remain like this nowadays. The singer’s newest works Mr. Lucky of 2009 or Beyond The Sun, which was issued in autumn of 2011 will help to make sure of it. Rock’n’roll is still in the spotlight, and this is beautiful.
