We all know Kiefer Sutherland best for his starring role on the Fox series “24” or maybe some of his movies such as ‘Stand By Me’, ‘The Lost Boys’, or ‘Young Guns’, but he will also be setting out on his debut tour as a Country musician to 26 venues across the country beginning April 14th in Milwaukee. More dates are expected to be announced soon.
Sutherland will bring his rich, soulful vocals and guitar licks to venues across the country when he performs for audiences with a set list that includes cuts from his folk-tinged album, “Down In A Hole“, set for release this summer.
The album’s 11 tracks have a “folky” feel and were written by Kiefer, who has been involved in music since opening a small record label called Ironworks in 2002 with his best friend, Jude Cole.
It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn’t counted on,” Sutherland said of the 11-track album. A track listing and release date will be announced soon.
In early 2015 Sutherland played Cole two songs he had written and wanted to record as demos for other artists to record. Cole responded positively to the songs and the album grew organically from those recordings. Two songs became four and four grew into six, until Cole suggested that they make a record. Their collaboration resulted in Sutherland’s upcoming debut album: “Down In A Hole”.
