Chris Isaak
Yes, 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, Isaak's first Vanguard Records release out Oct. 18 "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 Lewisâ€"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. Beyond the Sun will be available in both the 14-song standard set as well as a double album version that includes an additional 11 tracks. 
"I did this because I love this music that's the entire reason," Isaak explains, advising, "you gotta listen to the original ones they're classics " they're awesome but you can have fun with them. These guys discovered this music for us and we had to rediscover it. There's no way to do it exactly like they did it, so you've gotta give a little bit of your own take on it.

A Californian, Prophet first achieved notice in the American rock group Green on Red, with whom he toured and recorded in the 1980s.

In addition, he has gained notice as a songwriter. Solomon Burke, Heart, Kim Carnes, Peter Wolf, Kim Richey and Kelly Willis have covered his compositions. He has toured with Memphis producer and pianist Jim Dickinson, who recorded Prophet's "Hungry Town."
