Kiefer Sutherland brings conviction at Milwaukee country tour kickoff
By Piet Levy of the Journal Sentinel

Actor Kiefer Sutherland’s played a bad boy vampire, a musketeer and counter terrorism agent Jack Bauer on Fox’s hit action series « 24. »
But could Sutherland play a country singer…in real life?
That was the big question Thursday when the 49-year-old Sutherland kicked off his first tour at Shank Hall in Milwaukee.
A couple hundred people packed the club, despite the fact that Sutherland has only released one song. And right before the actor took the stage, one fan screamed « Lost Boys, » the title of one of Sutherland’s most famous films.
But by the end of the show, fans were swayed by Sutherland’s abilities. One fan was flashing devil horns during the smoking « Down in a Hole, » the title track from Sutherland’s debut album, coming out in June. People may have come to see a celebrity up close, but Sutherland earned the crowd’s respect through solid songs instead of star power.
His original, unheard material dominated the vast majority of Thursday’s 80-minute set. Nothing he displayed would be considered groundbreaking — Sutherland’s songwriting is rather simple and straightforward — but all of the originals conveyed conviction and character. There wasn’t a single dud or awkward lyric in the bunch.
« Shirley Jean » is Sutherland’s admirable homage to the songwriting styles of Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard, about a young man thinking about his lost love right before his execution. There was a rich moment of juxtaposition in which Sutherland sang of dancing with Shirley Jean, his arms wrapped around his acoustic guitar as he swayed, the romantic sounds of Spanish-style guitar swelling from the stage. But the character is merely daydreaming, right before « they flip the switch. »
« Goodbye » was a Tom Petty-inspired power rocker that ended with Sutherland barking « I’ll see you in hell when I (expletive) die. » Sutherland said it won’t appear on the album, but it should.
The standout was « All She Wrote. » It sounded like a death march in the desert, with slow, twangy guitar and sparse, foreboding drums giving way to dramatic surges of menacing country rock and sturdy vocal harmonies. It was a fine match with Sutherland’s vocals, full of danger and dread, expressed through a gravelly rasp.
Sutherland also brought his acting chops to the stage, handily conveying longing, regret and devilish charm when the moment called for it. It helped that Sutherland was supported by a strong four-piece backing band as well. Drummer Jes Calcaterra played with punk-like relish, her tongue sticking out like Michael Jordan during her flashy kit moments. And guitarist Michael Gurley, best known for fronting rock band dada, mastered Bakersfield twang, visceral rock swagger and everything in between.
But Sutherland still wouldn’t have been so successful Thursday if the songs hadn’t come from a personal place.
« Truth In Your Eyes, » he said, was inspired by a friend, a « beautiful woman, » who lived a hard life and died too young. « My Best Friend » chronicled a personal epiphany, that he needed to learn to love himself before he could be a good friend to others. Multiple tracks, like lead single « Not Enough Whiskey, » addressed the dark side of drinking, something Sutherland has struggled with himself.
Sutherland’s covers came from a personal space as well. He covered « Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door » because it was the song his father, actor Donald Sutherland, would blast in his Ferrari driving a 5-year-old Kiefer to nursery school. Those were some of the only times he spent with his father as a young child, Sutherland said, and he brought the warmth of that memory to his performance.
And he didn’t appear to be acting when he said he had been waiting a lifetime to play for a crowd like this one.
Maybe being a country singer is the role Sutherland was born to play after all.


Talking with Kiefer Sutherland about his first album and his love for Bob Seger

Sutherland says every song he wrote for the album is personal to him.
    « The lyrics are from my life and they are really personal. This album is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal. »
    « Calling Out Your Name’ » is a song about a break up I had when I was 24 or 25 that really broke my heart. It takes you from being a young man, to a man for better or for worse. Another song, ‘Down in the Hole’ is about a really good friend of mine that lost his life after making some very poor choices. That friend is someone I miss and I wrote a song about it. »
    « Doing a show, I get to explain to the audience where I was when I wrote the song. It also allows me to show that their experiences are not much different than mine. »
Sutherland says he has been writing music since he was 14 or 15, but never planned on releasing an album.
    « I had no intention of making a record. I had four or five songs that I liked and wanted to see if any other artists were interested in them. I went to my friend Jude Cole’s studio to record them. We did two songs and he said he really liked them. He said the songs were clearly mine and that we should make a record. I laughed and said it would never happen. After a few drinks, it seemed like a better idea. We recorded a few more songs and said if I didn’t like how they were going, we’d send them off to someone else. »
Sutherland says Michigan native Bob Seger has always been a huge influence on him.
    « As a writer, Bob Seger is just extraordinary. He has such a beautiful gift. »

Kiefer Sutherland – Making of Album « Down In A Hole »

Part 1: The Beginning

Kiefer Sutherland - Making of Album

With Jude Cole

438422431 dans → 02-Guitare/Musique/ZZ Lightfoot/Barefoot Boys of Box Canyon/The Kiefer Sutherland Band

Kiefer Sutherland se lance dans la musique avec « Not Enough Whiskey ». Un titre qui mise sur la mélancolie, et à travers lequel Kiefer évoque son besoin irrépressible de boire de l’alcool pour évacuer son malheur.

« Not Enough Whiskey » est le premier extrait d’un album qui devrait sortir cette année. Baptisé Down In A Hole, ce premier essai est présenté comme le fruit d’une collaboration avec Jude Cole, musicien et ami de longue date de Kiefer Sutherland, avec lequel il avait créé le label Ironworks en 2002. « Lui et moi sommes amis depuis l’âge de 20 ans environ. Nous nous sommes très vite entendus. C’était déjà un joueur de guitare incroyable. Si bien que j’ai fait en sorte de cacher ma guitare pendant trois ans, parce que je ne voulais pas jouer devant lui. » a raconté l’acteur de 49 ans au site Billboard, expliquant que l’idée d’écrire un disque a germé après que Jude Cole est tombé sur une maquette qu’il avait enregistrée. « Jude m’a incité à le rejoindre en studio et m’a conseillé. Puis nous avons bu quelques verres, et là, l’idée semblait plus intéressante. Ensuite, nous avons bu quelques verres de plus, et ça avait l’air encore mieux. Donc, nous avons convenu qu’il fallait enregistrer quelque chose, mais que nous ne le sortirions que si c’était bon » a-t-il renchéri.

Lors de cette interview, Kiefer Sutherland a également précisé qu’il ne cherchait pas à obtenir de « disques de platine » ni à « remplir des stades ». Il donne néanmoins rendez-vous au public américain dans les salles au printemps. Il va tester ses chansons lors d’une courte série de concerts aux mois d’avril et mai. aficia.info


Kiefer Sutherland’s upcoming debut album Down In A Hole partly stems from his long friendship with artist Jude Cole, who produced the project.

“He and I have been friends since I was about 20 years old. We became friends in about 20 minutes. He was an incredible guitar player — so good that I just kind of I hid my guitar for about three years, because I didn’t want to play around him, » Sutherland tells Billboard. « One of the great connectors for him and I both was music. He turned me on to a lot of music that I didn’t know about, and that became a real kind of avenue of communication for the both of us.”

Former ’24′ Star Kiefer Sutherland Announces Debut Album ‘Down In a Hole’

The two would continue their friendship over the years, and work together on videos for artists that Cole was working with. Then, one day, the 24 star bought a building in California when he made quite the discovery — one that he had to share with his friend.

“There were some offices there that I was going to knock down. One of them had a long rectangular window that looked like a control booth window. I made the mistake of calling Jude up and said ‘You’ve gotta come over and look at this building. I’m thinking of turning it in to an art studio.’ He came over and looked at the room, and said ‘We could do some recording stuff there.’ So, we ended up building one of the most state-of-the-art studios, and we started a label called Ironworks.” The two worked with newer artists on the label, in most cases trying to set them up for deals with bigger labels. After a few years of this, Sutherland had finished his run as Jack Bauer and ended up moving to New York.

However, that wasn’t the end of the story. Cole found a disc of a song that Sutherland himself had recorded and called his friend to see if he had any other songs in his stable.

“I had been writing the whole time, and thought about getting some demos done, maybe send them to EMI and Sony and see if anybody would record them,” reflected Sutherland. “Jude talked me into coming into the studio and doing that, and then he said ‘I think you should keep these, and make a record.’ I just laughed at him. We had a couple of drinks, and the idea sounded smarter. Then, we had a couple more drinks, and it sounded even better. So, we agreed to record some stuff, and if we liked it, we would do something with it. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t.”

Kiefer Sutherland Shares Old-Timey Country Drinkin’ Song ‘Not Enough Whiskey’

Before he went into the studio, Sutherland weighed the fact that actors weren’t typically successful as recording artists — and he knew there would be skepticism. However, he decided to roll the dice — and the results can be heard on Down In A Hole, out this summer.

“Something that made it much easier for me is the fact that I’m not trying to sell out stadiums, and I’m not trying to have a platinum record. I love these songs, but there’s no single thing out there that is for everybody, and I’m well aware of that. » Watch a behind-the-scenes look into the making of Down In A Hole, which Billboard is premiering exclusively.

Sutherland will give fans a taste of the music with a tour that begins on April 14 in Milwaukee. He will hit the road heavy for two months, and then will be working on the ABC series Designated Survivor, but he will be continuing to play shows during breaks in filming. « For the people that enjoy the music, if they want to come out and see a show, we’ve worked really hard, and I think we put on a really great show, » he explains. « I can’t promise anything more than that.”

At its heart, Sutherland thinks of his music as telling stories. “There’s a real country base to the record. It’s heavily country-influenced. I’m not from the south, so I don’t have a specific twang in my voice, so some have called it more of a singer-songwriter/Americana feel with a country kick. There’s some old-school country songs on there, and some of that stems from the fact that my interest as an actor and why I got involved in doing a play, film, or TV show, was that I really like the idea of telling a story, » he says. « Any role that I have ever picked as an actor has not been because of the character, but rather, ‘Man, that’s a cool story to tell.’ I don’t think there is another genre of music that does that. In rock and roll, the use of metaphor is really huge, from Pink Floyd on down the line, metaphor is a real strong concept. In country music, it’s not. It’s exactly what it is — ‘I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die,” he said quoting Johnny Cash’s classic “Folsom Prison Blues.” “That’s very literal. I just naturally gravitate towards writing like that.”

Of course, never far from the minds of fans of the actor is the future of Jack Bauer and 24. Sutherland is involved in the production of the upcoming Fox revival of the series, but as far as his character goes, that’s unclear. “I have no idea what’s in store for Jack Bauer, » he says. « I certainly have learned to never say never. When we finished season 8, if you would have told me that I would have done season 9, I would have stabbed you in the heart with a pencil,” he said with a laugh.

What was it about the series that captivated audiences for so long? “There were a few factors that registered in the show’s success,” he says. “For me, Jack was a flawed character. He was someone who was trying to the right thing all the time, but as any human does, there are moments where he would fail. There were also moments where what they thought was the right thing might not have been the right thing. I thought there was a real humanity to the character.”
He also says that timing may have played a part. “I think after the events of 9/11, I as a citizen felt helpless. I was so angry and heartbroken to see people jumping out of those buildings, and 3,000 people dying that just simply went to work, » says Sutherland. « It’s still impossible to articulate the depth of that tragedy. You saw it unfold on television, and I think a lot of people were angry. All of a sudden, you saw this show — which we started before 9/11 — with this guy who was going to take on these insurmountable odds and do something good. For a lot of people who felt really frustrated, and there was nothing they could do — to watch someone do it in the context of this show was satisfying, I guess on some level.” billboard.com

Kiefer Sutherland – Not Enough Whiskey Review

When I first heard about this happening I was sceptical at how good it would be. I love country music, what I’ve heard of it anyway, and I love Kiefer Sutherland as an actor. But when I heard of him releasing a country song, I was sceptical to say the least.
I knew I’d end up liking it, but initially thought I would simply because it was Kiefer. But do you know what? I genuinely love this song and am really looking forward to his album this summer. It feels to me like genuine country music, full of that brand of melancholy we know and love of the genre. album-reviews.co.uk

Kiefer Sutherland discusses new country album with AXS

It’s easy to forget that an actor – one who spends his time in the spotlight sharing the humanity of others – has the same emotional needs as his fans.

Unknown to a lot of people, Kiefer Sutherland has spent the last ten years writing incredibly personal music to accompany his already legendary career as an actor. Following in the narrative dedication in music to heroes like Jackson Browne or Kris Kristofferson , Sutherland didn’t just want to tell anyone’s story through song. He wanted to tell stories that had an impact on him. Enter his debut album Down In A Hole, his own exploration into the spiritual territory of country and americana music.

AXS was able to chat with Sutherland to discuss the record, for which he’s currently on tour.

AXS: Your album Down In a Hole comes at the artistic captaining of longtime friend Jude Cole, who oversaw your Iron Works Records outfit to the creative success of artists like Billy Boy On Poison. For AXS readers who are unfamiliar with Jude Cole, who is he?
Kiefer Sutherland: Jude Cole is a Warner Brothers artist at first. He’s done phenomenal records… everything from Start the Car to Baby It’s Tonight. He’s had a couple big hit singles back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. He did another record called Falling Home, and he’s been my best friend… gosh, twenty-seven years.

But he’s an extraordinary guitar player. He’s played for everybody from Moon Martin to Al Green. So he’s an extraordinary musician – a session player and a singer/songwriter, and has now been a producer for the last fifteen years. I think the biggest band he had – a band he managed and produced – is called Lifehouse. He’s produced a lot of other stuff, some things for us at Iron Works. When we started the company, he produced Rocco DeLuca’s first record. He produced a really great record for a band called HoneyHoney.

So he’s that. He’s a fantastic musician who works as a producer, as a player, as a writer, and was a Warner Brothers artist. I think he was on Island Records during the 80s and 90s.

AXS: What did he bring to the project for you? In what way did he sort of… fill in the creative gaps?
KS: Well, first of all, as a great friend, he was the person who I played these songs for just to get a sense of what he thought. As a musician, the fact that he was someone that I have so much respect for and that he liked them as much as he did made me feel confident about going forward. Again, this is a very new process for me, so I would say my confidence is not my great strength. Certainly when we started making the record. So he was instrumental in that.

And being a really great friend… if we got through eight or nine tracks, and at the end of it said “You know, I’m not really liking this,” I knew he’d be alright with that. I think that that was really important to me as well. And his talent as an arranger, his talents as a recording producer, are so vast that he made a record that I’m really thrilled with. The sound of it, the mood of it… I think one of the things that we were really cautious about when we had Iron Works as a label was that we felt very few people were making great albums. That the songs did not have a real continuity from beginning to end. Or that there would be four songs that you would clearly hear on an album that were designed to be singles, and the B-sides were not… they seemed like they were not even cared for at all. What I love [about] working with Jude is that there’s a real… you know, we ended up recording fifteen songs, and the four songs that didn’t make the album “didn’t not make the album” because we were really [unhappy] with those songs. They didn’t make the album because we were trying to really blend something from track one to eleven that made a really nice listening experience. Whether we succeeded in doing that or not is up to the listener, but we certainly made an effort at it.
So for all of those reasons, I certainly could not have made this album the way we did without Jude.

AXS: You’ve previously shared through other interviews that almost all of the songwriting in this album is your equivalent of a diary, and that you really took note of the narrative talents of artists like Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings – their ability to talk about things like injustice, etc. Is it fair to say that you’ve seen a lot of injustice, and that that sort of went into the album?
KS: Well, everybody has their own perspective on the way that everything happens or unfolds in front of them and in their life. For me, I’ve always had an issue… if I felt something was really unfair… that’s certainly something (for better or worse) that I’ve reacted to in my life. That certainly is a thing. I think I spent a lot of time as an actor on the road, and I think that that can get kind of lonely. There’s certainly… I’ve had a marriage that didn’t work and didn’t get to live with my kids, and you know, those are all choices that I was part of making. So there’s a sadness in that.

There’s also some songs that are really actually hopeful, and that kind of fantastic moment when you realize that you’ve been looking for someone to fall in love with forever and that they’re standing in front of you. That’s a song called “I’ll Do Anything.” It really rides the gamut of different points in my life that for whatever reason, when I sat down to write popped into my head.

And then there’s a couple other songs on the record that are more observational. Certainly “Shirley Jean” is one of those songs. But yeah, I think thematically… I’ve had “highs,” I’ve had “lows,” I’ve been surrounded by people, I’ve been completely alone at different times. It’s the human experiene, and I’ve tried to write as much about my human experience in this record.

AXS: With your sharing of the various parts of the human experience, were there particular tracks that you almost didn’t share on the album?
KS: Yeah, there’s a song called “Calling Out Your Name” that was really personal and… and what was funny was I think that was like the third song we recorded, or the fourth song we recorded. I always find it ironic is that the one thing you’re thinking is “well maybe I’ll just keep this one in my pocket for myself. I’ll play it at home.” When we ended up recording it, it became my favorite song. That was the one that I wanted people to hear the most, so I found that kind of ironic. There are some other ones that are just sad. “Down In A Hole” is a sad song about a friend that I lost. That just… didn’t do things very differently than I did, he just wasn’t as lucky. He got carried away one night and didn’t make it, you know.

And so, that’s interesting. Recording that, I didn’t feel that way. There’s a great guitar lick on that, and the lyric was personal. It kind of reminded me of that friend, and that was a good thing. When I go to play it live, I’m actually really angry when I sing that song, which I found really interesting. That’s what drives me when I’m singing that song.

AXS: Angry in general, as a displaced emotion or…?
KS: When I was singing the song, I was angry that the guy died. I was angry that my friend passed away. I was angry that he made the dumb decisions that he did that led to that, and I was very kind of surprised. Because that’s certainly not how I felt when I was doing it on the record. But in front of an audience – and you’re kind of finding the energy of a song live – it’s been really interesting how each song kind of affects me differently as a performer. And that one, “Down In A Hole,” I got to let a lot of that out.
AXS: So the album combined with the live touring has put together a cathartic experience for you?

KS: The recording of the album, it’s certainly not… we’re not necessarily chasing anything with the album. We put the album out, and if people like it they can get it. If people don’t, they don’t have to. The great benefit for me is to be able to go and play these songs to two hundred to four hundred people. And yes, its cathartic, it’s visceral, it’s a completely different form of expression that I’ve had for almost thirty years. So for me, its incredibly exciting for that reason. axs.com

    Triste, décontenancé, Sutherland se promène à la recherche de whisky pour éponger une difficile peine d’amour. S’il ne révolutionne pas le genre, l’acteur assure avec sa voix grave. huffingtonpost.ca

Un titre assez peu joyeux, dans lequel il est notamment question d’un manque de whisky pour que « les choses aillent bien », émaillé par la voix abîmée de l’acteur. Allociné.fr

While Sutherland isn’t a natural vocal talent, his singing here is serviceable. The slow and contemplative elegy—which he and writing partner Jude Cole tailored to his vocal abilities—doesn’t require crooning so much as a close-to-the-mic growl at which he seems quite adept.

“Its lyrics are simple and somber, with just the right dose of heartbreak thanks to his distinctive, gravelly baritone.” –Amy McCarthy, TheBoot

Kiefer Sutherland fait ses débuts de chanteur Country Américain dans un clip vidéo « Not Enough Wkiskey »

Kiefer Sutherland a financé le clip lui-même – «Je voulais quelque chose qui était personnel et voyager», dit-il – afin que lui et son partenaire songwriting (co-auteur) Jude Cole puissent trouver un motel où ils ont pu filmer un long clip, à travers un parking et dans un bar. C’est une vidéo qui met en valeur délibérément Sutherland, qui ne veut pas « se cacher derrière une bande » pour prouver son engagement comme artiste musical.

« Not Enough Whiskey, » comme beaucoup de chansons sur l’album, qui doit sortir cet été, est personnel pour Sutherland. « J’ai certainement été là, où quelque chose se passe dans la vie, et qu’une, deux, trois bouteilles de whisky ne vont pas le réparer » dit-il. « Dans le contexte de la chanson, ces moments sont importants pour réaliser, que vous devez trouver une autre façon de traiter avec tout ça. Je suis sûr que beaucoup de gens ont ressenti cela »

La possibilité de raconter des histoires à travers la chanson est ce qui a attiré Sutherland à la musique country, un genre sur lequel il se penche sérieusement au cours de la dernière décennie. « Je n’ai jamais pris un script parce que, Ooh, c’est un personnage que je veux jouer » dit-il. « Ça a toujours été parce que je pensais qu’il y avait une histoire intéressante à raconter. La Country musique pour moi est comme ça »

Kiefer Sutherland travaille sur cet album depuis la fin de 24: Live Another Day, il y a deux ans. Un opus aux sonorités folk-rock qui comprend 11 chansons.

Mais puisque Jude Cole connaissait la nature personnelle des chansons, il a réussi à convaincre Sutherland de les chanter lui-même sur un couple de boissons. « La chose que j’aime avec ma voix, est qu’il y a beaucoup de texture, et c’est une voix qui semble avoir beaucoup de miles (km), qui a vécu», dit Sutherland. « D’une certaine manière, cela convient à mes textes et mes chansons, et je commençais à me sentir à l’aise à ce sujet »

Dans « Truth in Your Eyes, » il raconte une autre histoire personnelle, à propos du témoignage d’un de ses meilleurs amis qui perd un partenaire violent. « Je peux seulement imaginer à quel point il était dévastateur pour eux parce que j’y pense encore comme l’un des moments les plus tristes de ma vie » dit-il. Une autre, « Calling Out Your Name » parle d’une relation qu’il avait au début de la vingtaine qui est tombé en morceaux alors que sa carrière d’acteur a décollé. « Il y a un moment dans la vie de tout le monde quand ils vont d’une jeune fille à une femme ou d’un garçon à un homme, et que la transition, au moins de mon expérience, est illustrée par le chagrin » dit-il. Et puis il y a la chanson titre « Down in a Hole» (tomber  dans un trou), qui rend hommage à un ami qui a bu jusqu’à la mort…

«Si j’apprends qu’un acteur veut faire de la musique, je suis le premier à être surpris. Ça a été fait avant, et bien souvent pas très bien. Beaucoup d’acteurs ont fait des CD, mais sans faire de tournée ou de clip pour soutenir leur travail. Et ça fini avant même d’avoir commencé. J’ai ressenti que c’était quelque chose que j’avais vraiment envie de faire», a-t-il confié au magazine Rolling Stone début mars.

L’acteur désormais chanteur sillonnera les États-Unis lors d’une tournée qui débutera à la mi-avril.

« I felt strongly that this was something I wanted to do, » actor says of upcoming LP, ‘Down in a Hole’

As Kiefer Sutherland, star of 24 and countless movies, preps the release of his debut album — an Americana and country outing dubbed Down in a Hole — he already knows what people might be thinking. « If I hear about an actor doing a music project, my eyes are the first to roll, » he tells Rolling Stone. « It’s been done before and, on some levels, not very well. A lot of actors make records but won’t tour to support them or make videos, and it ends up not being serious. I felt strongly that this was something I wanted to do. »

Today, the actor, who will be presenting at the ACM Awards this year, proves just how genuine he is in his ambitions by releasing a music video for « Not Enough Whiskey. » He financed the clip himself — « I wanted something that was personal and traveling, » he says — so he and his songwriting partner Jude Cole found a motel where they could film one long shot, through a parking lot and into a bar. It’s a video that purposefully showcases Sutherland, who didn’t want to « hide behind a band, » to prove his commitment to being a musical artist. »Not Enough Whiskey, » like many of the songs on the album, due out this summer, is personal for Sutherland. « I’ve certainly been there, where something will happen in life, and one, two, three bottles of whiskey are not going to fix it, » he says. « In the context of the song, those moments are important to realize so you have to find another way to deal with them. I’m sure a lot of people have felt that way. »In « Truth in Your Eyes, » he tells another personal story, about witnessing one of his best friends lose a partner violently. « I can only imagine how devastating it was for them because I still think of it as one of the saddest times in my life, » he says. Another, « Calling Out Your Name, » reflects on a relationship he had in his early twenties that fell apart as his acting career took off. « There’s a moment in everyone’s life when they go from a girl to a woman or a boy to a man, and that transition, at least from my experience, is illustrated through heartbreak, » he says. And then there’s the title track, « Down in a Hole, » which pays tribute to a friend who drank himself to death.The opportunity to tell stories through song is what attracted Sutherland to country music, a genre he got serious about during the past decade. « I never picked a script because, ‘Ooh, that’s a character I want to play,’ » he says. « It’s always been because I thought there was an interesting story to tell. Country music to me is like that. »Although he claims to be a huge rock fan, citing AC/DC, Neil Young and Paul Simon as some of his favorite artists, he is as much a fan of Kris Kristofferson (« a genius writer »), Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. « I could hum you every melody or guitar solo from a Pink Floyd record, but I couldn’t tell you what the hell they were talking about, » Sutherland says with a laugh. « There’s no messing around with a Johnny Cash song, and there’s something I really admire about that. »Sutherland first started work on the record about two years ago, after he finished the last season of 24. Initially, he and Cole wrote 17 songs, and he hoped to shop them around. « I’ve never been hugely confident about my voice, » he says. The pair had already gained experience running a label called Ironworks, which issued records by Rocco DeLuca, Billy Boy on Poison, Lifehouse and others, and the experience of working with singers had made him shy.

« Playing live is an experience I’ve been enjoying that I couldn’t even describe. »
But since Cole knew the personal nature of the songs, he managed to convince Sutherland to sing them himself over a couple of drinks. « The thing I like about my voice is there’s a lot of texture to it, and it’s a voice that sounds like it’s got a lot of miles on it, » Sutherland says. « Somehow it fit my lyrics and my songs, and I started to feel comfortable about it. »Sutherland has already begun playing gigs around California, and he says performing has been an exciting and fun experience. « It was challenging for me, » he says. « There were moments that made me very nervous. » But these are the kind of nerves he likes. Sutherland will be embarking on his first-ever music tour on April 14th, a trip that will run through the end of May. »The nice thing about being able to play these songs live is you can take a minute and tell the stories: ‘Look, I was here in 1994, and this is what was happening,’ » he says. « My experience so far, playing 250-seat rooms and bars, is that it’s created a level of intimacy. It’s an experience I’ve been enjoying that I couldn’t even describe. »

Some of you may have heard that I’m putting an album out this summer, called ‘Down In A Hole’. The album in many ways is like a journal of my last twenty years. If you notice a country flavor to some of the songs that’s because I’ve always found country music tells a story. The first song and video from the upcoming album is called ‘Not Enough Whiskey’. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did recording it and as much as I do playing it live. As always, thanks for your support. – Kiefer

Certains d’entre vous ont peut-être entendu dire que je sort un album cet été, appelée « Down In A Hole » . L’album est à bien des égards comme un journal de mes vingt dernières années. Si vous remarquez une saveur de pays à quelques-unes des chansons c’est parce que j’ai toujours trouvé que la musique country raconte une histoire. La première chanson et la vidéo de l’album à venir est appelé «Not Enough Whiskey». J’espère que vous l’apprécierez autant que j’en ai eu de l’enregistrer et autant que j’en ai de la jouer en live. Comme toujours, merci pour votre soutien. – Kiefer
