Throughout his impressive recording career right from his stunning 1985 debut to this latest stellar effort Chris Isaak has tunefully and artfully explored the good, the bad and the ugly of love, as well as other matters of profound human interest.
He has done so with an abiding respect for popular music's past, but at the same time with clear and vital passion for the here and now.
Besides having a successful music career, he has been in numerous films and has made many TV appearances.
Among the movies in which he has appeared are "Married to the Mob" and "The Silence of the Lambs."
On TV, he appeared on an episode of "Friends" and had his own show, "The Chris Isaak Show," from 2001 to 2004.
