Standout Isaak hits include the iconic “Wicked Game,” “Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing” and “Somebody’s Crying.” He has appeared on many TV shows and several films, starred in Showtime’s “The Chris Isaak Show” and “The Chris Isaak Hour” on the Biography Channel. A recent judge on the “X-Factor” in Australia, Isaak performed at the opening of the Super Bowl festivities in San Francisco and was recently profiled on CBS Sunday Morning.
For Isaak, continuing to write and record is one of his best and least twisted ideas. “People who love music still get excited for a great new song or a performance that connects,” he explains. “Making [‘First Comes the Night’] wasn’t a contractual obligation – it was a thrill and a privilege to be making music with so many great people. I don’t think, ‘I’m going to sell 40 million records.’ I think, ‘How I’m going to make a hell of a record even if it’s for 40 people who just listen to it a million times.’ I think about it this way – I’ve worked my whole life and never missed a gig in 30 something years. I want to do this, and for me, the thrill is not gone.”
