Who is chris isaak dating now
Now, with all of them – with the exception of Lewis – dead, Isaak has stepped up as the guardian and curator of the Sun sound. I thought that I had put out enough work by now that I would finally not be defined by it.
I could put out a Hawaiian album [now] and people wouldn’t go, 'Chris Isaak, Hawaiian artist’.
Chris Isaak feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and he has little taste for convention and tradition.
Though I’ve been allocated only a brief interview slot with Chris it’s still a delight when the man behind the million-selling 1989 single Wicked Game then launches into Mr Lonely Man, a track from his haunting, country-influenced new album Mr Lucky.
” Indeed, with his retro look, many people have accused Isaak from the earliest days of his career of being a Fifties throwback, a charge he hotly denies.
“There was a misconception about me when I started off because I had my hair greased up and I have some vague resemblance to the hillbilly gene pool that Elvis came from.
It’s only when Isaak, perhaps seeing the desperation in my eyes, drops the convivial, easy-entertainer shtick – the compulsive jokes and songs – and starts talking seriously about his rather good new record that I realise there is more to the Californian than just being a heartbroken one-hit wonder.
This transformation has come about through a CD of cover versions.
