And for First Comes The Night—his first album of new material in six years—this singer/songwriter is bringing us a load of strong and intriguing songs from which to choose.
“There was no mission for this album other than to follow the songs,” Isaak explained. “My last release was Beyond the Sun—my tribute to Sun Records—so this time around I had a lot of new material that I was thrilled to record. My manager always tells me, `We need more songs.’ This time, even she realized she’s creating a songwriting monster, and had to beg me to stop.”
The new album, which had a large portion written in Nashville, fittingly represents a number of firsts for Isaak and features him at his best. For all the firsts, there’s a strong through-line that continues from Isaak’s earlier triumphs like Silvertone (1985), Chris Isaak (1986), Heart Shaped World (1989), San Francisco Days (1993), Forever Blue (1995) and Always Got Tonight (2002).
In part because of his new position on The X Factor Australia, Isaak finds himself thinking back to his own path to stardom and the musicians who made that journey more meaningful. For Isaak continuing to write and record is one of his best and least twisted ideas.
“I’ve realized the real prize isn’t how much money you make or the gold records,” Isaak said. “The real prize is the people you work with. That sounds like a Hallmark Card, and that might sound crazy to a 20-year-old who just wants to get famous, but it ends up being true. I’ve always gone out on the road with people who I love and respect as musicians and as people.”
Blue Confusion is the fusing together of three powerhouses of the regional music scene. Todd Mihan, Nik Rael & Jorge Pertuz each with a strong following of their own. All are from varying sections of the musically fertile Hudson Valley. The band’s influences include blues, country, soul, reggae, psychedelia, and folk music.
