Kiefer Sutherland doesn’t care about the actor turned singer stigma anymore

The Desert Sun Published April 30, 2017

Fans of Hollywood mainstay Kiefer Sutherland know him as Jack Bauer from the critically acclaimed “24” or as President Tom Kirkman in the current television series “Designated Survivor.”

On Sunday, inside the Palomino tent at Stagecoach, he was a country star with a deep, gravelly voice and a story to tell.

He performed songs from his debut studio album “Down in A Hole” released Aug. 19, including the prison ballad “Shirley Jean,” which has a video, just released on Friday – the first day of Stagecoach.

The crowded tent was filled with fans, many whom loved his energy and emotion which at times had him stomping around the stage, jumping off the drum stage and strumming so hard you might expect him to break some strings.

The actor turned country singer was just as grateful to be performing at what he called the « pinnacle » for country music. At one point, he even raised a glass of beer with the audience for a universal « cheers.”

“I would have played at 8 in the morning and I would have played for 15 minutes. Incredible privileged. I feel really lucky to have been invited. And … the audience was so fantastic I was so thrilled,” he told The Desert Sun in a post-performance interview.

Many of Sutherland’s longtime fans came to know him in the 1980’s when his movie career launched with notable such films as “Stand by Me” in 1996, “The Lost Boys” in 1987, “Young Guns” in 1988, “Flatliners” in 1990 and “A Few Good Men” in 1992. He continued making movies through the 90s and in the 2000s shifted to television where he became known to all as Bauer – the self-sacrificing, counter terrorist, former federal agent. And he’s now in the ABC political drama “Designated Survivor.”

He’s also making an appearance later this year in the reboot of “Flatliners” starring Diego Luna and Ellen Page.

“In my head, it was the same character. It’s more of a smile,” Sutherland said. “The director was phenomenal the cast was great. But Michael Douglas who produced the original “Flatliners” gave me a call and asked if I would partake in it and it’s just something you can’t not say ‘Yes” to. It was a lot of fun for me to do. I’m looking forward to seeing it because I only did a little bit.”

For as illustrious as Sutherland’s career has been, there is one obvious thread that weaves through the 50-year-old’s career in front of a camera – storytelling.

“I never looked for a role, there was films I wanted … but it was always up to a director to decide what part they thought I was best suited to help tell that story. And I’ve always approached that like that, same with television. And music is just another way of telling a story, just for me on a more personal level,” Sutherland said.

He’s been writing for a long time and music has always been a part of his life but, aware of the stigma that can be attached to an actor doing music, he kept that itch at bay.

“It was never something I wanted to do. Definitely not in my 20s or 30s and even 40s, but I’d written some songs that I was really proud of and I really liked,” he said.

His initial plan was to record some demos with his best friend and writing partner, Jude Cole and then hand them off to Sony or BMI and see if they can get other artists to do them. But, he really liked the way the songs sounded and after initially saying “no” to Cole’s suggestion of recording an album himself, he finally gave in.

“He was pretty smart, he took me to a bar and it started to sound like a better idea and so we agreed to do a couple of songs at a time and for me there was a moment, it was around the 6th or 7th song and I had to just acknowledge that I really liked the way he had made them sound and I really liked the songs and I really wanted to play them live,” Sutherland said.

“I got to a point in my life where I really didn’t care anymore if someone’s going to make fun of you, or do whatever they’re going to do. I hit a point in my life where I wasn’t doing it for any other reason than this was another way of telling a story that mattered to me and that’s really what I loved about acting and so this was a very natural transition for me.”


Sutherland has much respect for and looks up to legendary singer-songwriters like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson because, much like him, they have faults and aren’t afraid to write about them and sing about them.

“When I heard their music, there was something really comforting in knowing that we’re not in it alone. We all make mistake and we have to pick ourselves up and move forward. That’s really my attraction to the genre and I’m certainly no different. I’ve made plenty of mistakes in my life but it’s a long life, » he said.  »It’s hopefully something we can learn through and maybe help other people through .. and move forward and that’s what country music represents to me personally and I would love to contribute in that fashion in some way. »

It is through his writing music and live performances that, for the first time, he can’t hide behind a character when telling stories – a big deal for the seasoned entertainer.

He’s enjoying the ride for as long as it lasts.

“There is no real goal. Which is very comforting. If I can play the bars I’ve been playing and have people come out until the day I die I will be grateful for that. And with regards to songwriting, that’s just something I do. Its nice to have it transition from a very private personal thing to being able to share that.” desertsun.com
