After more than a quarter of a century into his career, Chris Isaak has finally created the album he’s always wanted to make. Beyond the Sun is truly a labor of love. As a child spinning his parents 45s in their Stockton, California home, this deeply committed artist has been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the visionary artists who got their starts there-including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis-all of them discovered and nurtured by the late, great Sun Records founder Sam Phillips. Now, at long last, Isaak has acted on this� lifelong obsession, magically recapturing the transformative hepcat brilliance of the classic sides cut by these greats at Sun with Phillips during the mid-’50s, while also getting down to the heart and soul of his own deeply rooted musical identity. See him live at the Historic Theater this summer.
