Kiefer Sutherland carries the momentum of his live shows in his debut album Down In A Hole, from Warner Music Nashville/Ironworks Music. A special edition vinyl LP is available exclusively at Barnes & Noble.
(Note from Bear Radio’s Dann Miller: “Before you dismiss the latest Celeb to cut country tracks…Check out the video for “Not Enough Whiskey”. I love the pedal steal work and while Southerland does not present much of a vocal workout…his voice has a Paycheck/Cash whiskey growl that makes single an ear bore. I found myself singing the chorus later in the day.”)
Sutherland recently wrapped up a North American tour where he sold out venues across the U.S. and Canada. His soulful baritone vocals and guitar licks continue to captivate audiences with his second music video, “Can’t Stay Away,” which premiered exclusively on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown.
“This record is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. 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 Down In A Hole.
Earlier this year Sutherland gave fans a taste of his songwriting notebook when he released the pedal-steeled “Not Enough Whiskey.” Sutherland co-wrote every song on the upcoming 11-track album with producer Jude Cole.
“Kiefer shows off his rough-hewn vocals and a twangy, steel-guitar loving sound, along with a storyline that laments the problems whiskey just can’t fix.”
–Chris Parton, Country Weekly
“Its lyrics are simple and somber, with just the right dose of heartbreak thanks to his distinctive, gravelly baritone.”
–Amy McCarthy, TheBoot
Sutherland, an Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor, is known for his starring role on the Fox series “24,” starring roles in movies like ‘Stand By Me,’ ‘The Lost Boys,’ ‘Young Guns,’ Flatliners,’ and many more. Sutherland’s upcoming ABC series “Designated Survivor” premieres this fall on ABC.
