Christopher Joseph "Chris" Isaak (born June 26, 1956) is an American rock musician and occasional actor. Isaak was born in Stockton, California, the son of Dorothy (née Vignolo), a potato chip factory worker, and Joe Isaak, a forklift driver. Isaak`s mother is Italian American, originating from Genoa. Chris has two older brothers, Nick and Jeff. Isaak signed a contract to Warner Bros. Records in 1984 for his first album Silvertone. The tracks "Gone Ridin`" and "Livin` for Your Lover", from this album, were featured in David Lynch`s cult classic Blue Velvet. Isaak`s second self-titled album Chris Isaak was photographed by fashion photographer Bruce Weber. Isaak`s contract was renewed in 1988 when Warner Bros. moved him to their Reprise Records label.

Isaak has also appeared in numerous films, mostly playing minor cameo roles, though he starred with Keanu Reeves and Bridget Fonda in the 1993 Bernardo Bertolucci-directed Little Buddha, and also played a major role in David Lynch`s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992). Other motion pictures include Married to the Mob (1988), The Silence of the Lambs (1991), That Thing You Do! (1996), and A Dirty Shame (2004).
