Chris Isaak is something of a renaissance man. In addition to being a talented singer and songwriter, he's an actor, guest-starring in popular television shows like "Friends" and "Hot in Cleveland"; he even had his own series on Showtime in the early 2000's. He's been in movies with Michelle Pfieffer, Jodie Foster and Tom Hanks. He's done some voice-overs, and he was recently named as a judge on "The X Factor Australia." But the truth is even if »»»
Beyond the Sun CD review - Beyond the Sun
Chris Isaak has spent the better part of his career clearly showcasing the influence of Sun Studios recording stars like Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley so it shouldn't come as any surprise that Isaak has finally turned back to his influences for "Beyond the Sun."

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
