Le héros de « 24 Heures », Kiefer Sutherland, en concert à Paris le 14 juin 2017

Gérard Drouot Productions annonce que l’acteur va se produire sur la scène de La Cigale, à Paris, le mercredi 14 juin. Il y interprétera les titres de son 1er album, « Down in a Hole », sorti l’été dernier.

Dans un style country et avec sa voix rocailleuse, il risque de surprendre beaucoup de monde. Les places sont en tout cas d’ores et déjà en vente et les prix s’étalent de 45,50 à 60,35 euros.

Kiefer Sutherland n’est pas le premier acteur à sortir un disque et à venir le défendre en concert à Paris. Ces dernières années, cela a déjà été le cas pour Kevin Costner ou encore David Duchovny. ladepeche.fr

Kiefer Sutherland, star de Designated Survivor et de 24 heures chrono, s’est mis à la musique avec succès.

Kiefer Sutherland, l’acteur principal de la série Designated Survivor, a partagé cette semaine le morceau « I’ll do anything », extrait de son album Down in a Hole. La vidéo pour ce morceau a été filmée sur scène, en noir et blanc, pour donner un véritable effet atmosphérique. Dans son titre-single, Kiefer Sutherland demande à la femme qu’il aime de lui donner sa chance, après qu’il a réalisé qu’il est tombé amoureux d’elle.

« I don’t expect that you could love me or even see me in this light » / « Je ne m’attends pas que vous puissiez m’aimer ou me voir même dans cette lumière »

Un sacré changement de registre auquel il faudra pourtant s’habituer. Si Kiefer Sutherland joue les gros bras à l’écran, en studio il se fait plus romantique et plus folk voire country. Avec son premier et nouvel album, Kiefer Sutherland entre dans la cour des grands, en annonçant une tournée de 26 dates en Amérique du Nord et quelques dates à travers le monde (dont une en France, le mercredi 14 juin à la Cigale).

Grand amateur de music, Kiefer Sutherland a fondé en 2002 son propre label, Ironworks Records avec Jude Cole. C’est également avec Cole que Sutherland a travaillé pour aboutir à Down in a Hole. rollingstone.fr

‘Designated Survivor’ star shares black-and-white clip for track from his ‘Down in a Hole’ album

He may play the leader of the free world on ABC’s prime time drama Designated Survivor, but in his new video, Kiefer Sutherland is just a guy, standing in front of a girl, asking her to love him.

In the atmospheric, black-and-white performance clip for « I’ll Do Anything, » Sutherland pleads with a woman to give him a chance after he realizes that he’s fallen in love with her and aches to move out of the friend zone and into true romance.

« I don’t expect that you could love me or even see me in this light, but this feelings hit me so strong, this feeling that I cannot fight, » he sings in the sweet country shuffler.

The song appears on Down in the Hole, Sutherland’s fine country debut, released last August and produced by his long time buddy, Jude Cole, who convinced him to record the songs he was writing instead of handing them off to others to sing.

Sutherland told Rolling Stone last year that he’s the first to know that actors-turned-singers are a deservedly maligned lot (even though he’s been singing as long as he’s been acting, if not longer). « I had to have that come-to-Jesus moment because, trust me, an actor doing music makes my eyes roll in the back of my head, too, » he said. « So I can’t blame anyone for thinking that, and that’s why we’re prepared to go one bar at a time. It’s the most constructive thing I’ve ever done in a bar [laughs], so it’s working out. »

« I’ll Do Anything » ends before we know if Sutherland’s « perfect angel » returns his ardor, but not before he declares that he is in it for the long term as he vows, « You will take my hand and together we can make a stand. »

Kiefer Sutherland Still Doesn’t Have Enough Whiskey

Kiefer Sutherland is on TV once more with his new show “Designated Survivor,” and soon he will be on stages with his “folk-tinged” country tunes.

The famed actor released his debut LP, Down In A Hole, last year and is bringing those country tunes around the world on the “Not Enough Whiskey Tour,” with stops planned in the U.S. and Europe.

The U.S. dates are first on the docket, starting at Texas Music Revolution in Plano, Texas, on March 25, followed by an appearance at Stagecoach in Indio, Calif., on April 30. After that, it’s headline gigs from California to New York, with plenty of stops in between.

This week he announced headline dates in Europe throughout June, the first of which is in Alborg, Denmark on June 1. The last stop of the month is in Glasgow, Scotland, on June 27. That leg of the “Not Enough Whiskey Tour” will see Kiefer playing 19 times in nearly four weeks.

The last appearance we have on the books for the man who looks strikingly like Jack Bauer is at Oro-Medonte, Ontario’s Boots And Hearts Country Music Festival on Aug. 11.

Down In A Hole
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 Kiefer Sutherland’s upcoming debut album: ‘Down In A Hole’. Sutherland says of the 11 tracks that make up the album, « 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 ».

« Au fond du trou »
Au début 2015, Sutherland a joué à Jude Cole deux chansons qu’il avait écrites et voulait enregistrer en tant que demos pour d’autres artistes. Cole a répondu positivement aux chansons et l’album a grandi. Deux chansons sont devenues quatre et quatre sont devenues six, jusqu’à ce que Cole suggère un disque. Leur collaboration a débouché sur le prochain album de Kiefer Sutherland: ‘Down In A Hole’. Sutherland dit des 11 morceaux qui composent l’album, «C’est la chose la plus proche que j’ai jamais eu comme un journal intime. Toutes ces chansons sont tirées de mes propres expériences personnelles. Il ya quelque chose de très satisfaisant à être en mesure de regarder un retour sur ma propre vie, les bons et mauvais moments, et d’exprimer ces sentiments à travers la musique. Autant  j’ai apprécié le processus d’écriture et d’enregistrement, autant j’ai une grande joie maintenant d’être en mesure de jouer ces chansons devant un public en direct, ce qui était quelque chose auquelle je n’avais pas pensé ».

Album Down In A Hole Review :

The debut Country album from Kiefer Sutherland might strike several of you by surprise. Many times, when an actor from movies and / or television records an album, they tend to overcompensate for their supposed lack of “Country” roots, and the results can often across sounding hokey.

Down In A Hole is not one of those albums.

First of all, Sutherland has been doing this for a while. Music isn’t just something that he discovered over the past few weeks or days. It’s also not an attempt to pay the bills (Come on, 24 has been one of the most successful TV / Movie franchises in recent years, so money is not an issue here).

These songs – none of them, as a matter of fact, are far from sweet little fun three minute ditties that were penned to entertain the masses. You get the idea that these lyrics have been lived in. This is not a pretty record, by any stretch. Sutherland laid his soul on the line – for all of us to hear.

Whether it be the opening “Can’t Stay Away,” (which scores, in part to some incredible and soulful harmonies) or the moody, Springsteen-ish sounds of “I’ll Do Anything,” this definitely rings true as one of the most honest records you’re going to hear this year. He also oozes with gritty realism on the powerful “Down In A Hole” and “All She Wrote.”

But, for me as a listener, the thing that makes this album the most affecting is his touch as a songwriter. “Calling Out Your Name” drips with pain, while he flips the emotional coin a bit on “My Best Friend,” which effectively represents a man at peace with his life and decisions. “Shirley Jean” perhaps is the most tear-jerking song on the album, given the bittersweet vibe of the fact that the lead character is going to be facing his own end soon, and, quite possibly, the lyrical masterpiece of the album is the jaw-dropping “Truth In Your Eyes,” in which the lyrics about taking someone for granted who was so much a part of your life ring very true.

Sutherland isn’t by any definition a smooth balladeer who sings on this album about everlasting love, and holding someone under the stars in the skies. Quite honestly, one gets the feeling that he’s lost many of the people he has held those moments with en route to where he is now – which is what makes this album a keeper. It’s not flashy. It’s honest. The way that pure music is supposed to be! soundslikenashville.com

Kiefer Sutherland on His Debut Album: ‘I Hear About an Actor Wanting to Do Music and My Eyes Roll Back Too’

Kiefer Sutherland is well aware that when an actor takes a stab at a music career, people tend to be extremely skeptical.

« I had no intention of making an album. I hear about an actor wanting to do music and my eyes roll back too, » he tells PEOPLE exclusively with a grin. « I’m completely aware of the stigma and that’s why I never did it. »

Until now, that is. Despite his apprehension, Sutherland, 49, is embarking on a second career in music with an intensity and dedication that would make Jack Bauer, his alter ego from the hit TV series 24, very proud. Sutherland’s debut album, Down in a Hole, releases Friday. The video for his new single, « Can’t Stay Away, » recently premiered on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown.

« People have asked, ‘Oh, what girl is that about?’ It was never about a girl, » Sutherland says of « Can’t Stay Away. » « It was about a bar up the street, walking in the wrong direction when I should be walking home. There was a period, for better or worse, I spent a lot of time there around 2002 or 2003. »

Seated in the office of his Nashville publicist, wearing jeans and a fitted, charcoal gray V-neck pullover, Sutherland is warm, friendly and possesses a self-deprecating sense of humor. He’s obviously passionate about music and anxious to discuss Down in a Hole. He co-wrote every song on the 11-track album with longtime friend/producer Jude Cole.

Sutherland credits Cole with encouraging him to record his own album. His original intent was to pitch the songs he’d been writing to other artists to record.

« I went up to Jude’s studio to record them and we did two songs in the first couple of days, » says Sutherland, who is also starring in Designated Survivor, a new ABC series premiering Sept. 21. « At the end he said, ‘I really like your songs and they are clearly yours. You should do them. You should make a record.’ I laughed at him and said, ‘That’s never going to happen,’ and somehow we had a few drinks and at the end of that night, it seemed like a better idea. »

He continues, « We ended up recording a couple more, always with the caveat that if I didn’t like the way it was going, then we’d just send them off to someone else and see if they’d want to do them. It wasn’t until we were about four or five songs in that I started to get a sense of the shape of what we could do as an album. »

Music has always been part of Sutherland’s life and he started writing songs at 15.

« Music was something that I became really seriously attached to as a really young person because I had an older brother who I idolized and he was the biggest music fan in the world, » he tells PEOPLE with a grin. « I just wanted to be exactly like him. I made the joke that I was probably the only third grader that was listening to Aerosmith, so country music was not the music that I certainly grew up on. »

Sutherland fans got a taste of his debut album when he hit the road this spring for an extensive tour.

« We didn’t play any major markets, » he notes. « We played Birmingham, Alabama, Sellersville, Pennsylvania, Wilmington, Delaware and other cities. We wanted to go to places where most people don’t stop by and those people were incredibly generous to us. We didn’t play New York, didn’t play L.A. We didn’t play Chicago, Nashville and Austin. We’ll earn our way to those spots. »

Sutherland enjoys life on the road. He spent 10 years traveling the rodeo circuit as a team roper and says the life of a touring musician suits him.

« The nicest moments I’ve had have been after you play a show. You get back on the bus, go to bed, wake up the next morning and you’re in a new town, » he tells PEOPLE. « Everybody else is off the bus because they don’t sleep as well as you did on the bus. You hop off and step outside with a cup of tea and a cigarette. ‘Okay, here we are today.’ It makes you feel like a kid. It’s just that exciting for me. That’s been something that I really, really enjoy – waking up in a new town every day. » people.com

Kiefer Sutherland gets personal.
After Kiefer Sutherland’s blockbuster movie roles, famous drinking episodes, time in roping and rodeos, runaway stardom as Jack Bauer of TV drama 24, music label management and now work as a touring musician, you can make a compelling case he is uniquely qualified to talk about reinvention.

When he does, he evokes David Bowie, just a couple of days before the singer’s death. Bowie purists needn’t worry: Sutherland proves too grounded about his career and his new band to compare himself to Bowie musically.

“Bowie totally did it in the context of being an artist, very aware of what he was doing and why he was doing it,” Sutherland says. “Not me. My reinventing came out of necessity.”

He goes on: “When my film career went to shit I decided to do something else. When 24 did really well, I had extra cash and music was a passion, and I was seeing great artists not getting signed because the record industry was getting this colossal shift, and I realized there was an opportunity to help.

“I’d love to say it was part of a larger plan or an artistic concept like Bowie. It’s not. For me, reinvention is solely born out of interest in those things – it’s more ADD – and it kept me alive in a way that, as I look back on my life, if something horrific happens to me on the way home, in the last second I’d go, ‘This has been awesome.’ A lot of people would say something else. There’s not going to be a lot of should’ves in my last moments.”

When he appears at Fox Theater in Salinas Saturday, Jan. 23, he’ll visit his last moments, in a way, with a song called “It’s My Last Night.” The audience eavesdrops as he voices a final letter to a lost love from a prisoner sentenced to death.

“Writing these words don’t come easy to me/ but I’ve run out of time and soon I’ll be free,” he croons, part Tom Petty, part Americana, part saloon rasp, with Sutherland at his best with ballad-like, country-leaning songs like this one.

That’s not a coincidence. Petty is clearly a primary influence. He also cites Hank Williams.

“Petty always had such incredibly simple lyrics that manage to drive a narrative of a song home to your heart,” he says. “It reminds me of Hank Williams – albeit a different generation and genre – but both knew how to tell a story.”

Storytelling runs throughout his career, and right into his songs: “If there’s an extension from actor to musician,” he says, “it’s something about music I’ve always loved: the ability to tell story. It wasn’t the action, the fighting, the girl: I loved idea of a story that affected me.”

His songs come driven by his experience, experience he calls “very personal.” They also resonate with themes of loneliness, loss and resilience. On “Can’t Stay Away,” he admits he’s “Walkin’ in the wrong direction/ Know I should be walking home/ Smart enough to know much better/ Tough enough to be alone.”

When his friends dug it and asked what woman he sang of, he said it was his older daughter.

Only she called B.S.

“She said, ‘That’s not about a girl, that’s about a bar up the street.’ I talk about that in my set. It’s about the time in life when the bar felt like my girlfriend, which is not always a good thing. The song is me trying to explain that to myself.”

He accesses other tough times, with songs like “Calling Out Your Name,” a song about his first real love of his life (“It didn’t work out, for a variety of circumstances,” he says, “and it was a very public thing”); “Down in a Hole” (“I had friends who got into a lifestyle and paid a real price; writing a song helped me deal with it”) and “My Best Friend” (“There’s a moment you realize, to get yourself out of a ditch, you’re the one shot you got at it”).

The content stirs up something familiar from a conversation the Weekly had with 24 co-creator and Monterey native Bob Cochrane as the show’s popularity was exploding in 2006. Cochrane called Sutherland “a very smart guy,” adding, “I’d seen his work. And he projects an inner demon that we liked.”

The Sutherland conversation roams from there – from family work ethic to L.A. punk bands to pop culture to Picasso. You get the sense the show will enjoy a similar depth and accessibility. But since there won’t be a ton of Q&A, it was important to steer our talk toward other important items, like Jack Bauer (his unforgettable anti-terrorist operative in 24) and The Lost Boys (a breakout hit shot in Santa Cruz).

His favorite Bauer moment: when he must mail proof of an assassination.

“I had to say, ‘I’m gonna need a hacksaw,’ and I had to do it 10 times to say it without laughing.”

His strangest fan interaction: when a man dropped down his chimney. “I wasn’t in town, and I got a call from the fire department, saying they might have to knock down the chimney.”

On The Lost Boys: When they cast the extras as vampire bohemian types, they told everyone who showed up to appoint themselves how they would normally. “They didn’t have to dress a singl. montereycountyweekly.com

…What’s the set list for the show?

I made a record that comes out around March. The set list will be that record and a couple tunes that reflect my American influences and why they’ve important to me.

Who’s on that list?

Tom Petty always had such incredibly simple lyrics that manage to drive a narrative of a song home to your heart. It reminds me of Hank Williams—albeit a different generation and genre—but both knew how to tell a story.

With Petty I’ve never listened to a song, whether nonsensical as “Honey Bee” or as meaningful as “Louisiana Rain,” that doesn’t take my breath away.

Petty felt that way about Bob Dylan. There’s an anecdote I have about Bob Dylan that goes with a song I play in concert.

Growing up in Canada, [internationally touring singer-songwriter] Gordon Lightfoot did lyrics that drove home to me too.

The record I made, and the songs I made that I was proud of, they’re all story-oriented, all very personal.

In the oddest way, if there’s an extension from actor to musician, it’s something about music I’ve always loved: the ability to tell story.

I loved that about acting. It  wasn’t the action, the fighting, the girl: I loved the idea of a story that affected me.

From “Can’t Walk Away” to “Down in a Hole” to « I’m Going Home »—themes of loneliness, loss and resilience aren’t subtle in your music. Why is that such a clear and present part of your songs?

“Can’t Stay Away” I find ironic. A couple of friends heard an early version, and told me how much they liked it.

They asked “Who’s the girl?” I told them it wasn’t a woman [I dated]. It was my older daughter.

When I asked her about the song, she said, “That’s not about a girl, that’s about a bar up the street.”

I talk about that in the set. It’s not about a person, it’s about the time in my life when the bar felt like my girlfriend, which is not always a good thing. The song is me trying to explain that to myself.

What else can you tell me about the inspiration for your songs?

I’m looking at the set list now.

“Calling Out Your Name” is a song about first real love of my life. It didn’t work out, for a variety of circumstances, and it was a very public thing.

I wrote the song a long time ago. I hope at least the lyrics are linear and make some kind of sense.

“Down in a Hole”?

I had friends who got into a lifestyle and paid a real price—the ultimate—and I don’t know how to express that tragedy. I’ve had moments in my own life when I felt closer to that place than I do now.

Writing a song helped me deal with it.

It kept memories of those situations and people I lost alive.

There’s a weird comfort in that for me.

“My Best Friend”?

There’s a moment you realize, to you get yourself out of ditch, you’re the one shot you got at it. You can’t expect someone else to always be there for you.

I think they’re really clear narrative songs, and certainly not complicated songs. I like the lyrics, and I hope the audience likes them too.

How do you describe your style of music?

I’m not good with the labels. The label I hear a lot is Americana. We can be more country western to some, more rock to others.

It’s in between genres, more singer-songwriter stuff than anything.

[Friend/business partner] Jude Cole has amazing parts on the record, and gives it dynamic life.

How did early LA punk—Black Flag, The Germs—affect you? Does that express itself in what you do?

Probably not.

The wonderful thing about punk rock music to me—why I went and watched those shows but didn’t play in a punk band—is that it’s music is driven by such a sense of alienation and desire to create a brand new community.

I never felt that alienated, but I was always interested by people that have the courage to stand on their own.

I was more interested in pop culture, films like [The] Godfather and French Connection and bands like Boston.

I dug all that. So I was mostly a voyeur into the punk world. I found it so earnest and interesting.

« La voix fatiguée et usée par la nicotine de Sutherland montre une véritable émotion »

Actor Kiefer Sutherland takes the stage for The Kate Season 2 to showcase his debut album, Down In A Hole. This show is being filmed live for the CPTV series ‘The Kate.’

This performance is being filmed for The Kate series on Sunday, February 19th at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.

Yep, Kiefer Sutherland’s coming Sunday to the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center for a sold-out appearance.

I know what you’re thinking: Why is this happening?

Well, because he wants to sing for you. Y’see, last year, Sutherland released « Down in a Hole, » a heartfelt and more-than-competitive debut album containing 11 country/roots tunes he co-wrote with producer/pal Jude Cole.

Often, the impulse, on learning that yet another actor has decided to become a music star, is to slice your ears off. « Please! No more Keanu-ness! » But it wouldn’t be fair to dismiss « Down in a Hole » without giving it a listen. Sutherland’s weary, nicotine-savaged voice shows real emotion, and « I’ll Do Anything, » « Calling Out Your Name » and « Gonna Die » are some pretty fine tunes. I suspect that all the folks who bought enough copies of this album that it hit #33 on Billboard’s U.S. Country charts are glad they did so — well beyond just the curiosity or memorabilia quotients.

It’s also fair to suggest that Sutherland can presumably afford to pay a great backing band — which includes guitarist/vocalist Michael Gurley, one of the three members of dada, THE great overlooked American power-pop trio. theday.com
