Kiefer Sutherland is best known for playing the rough and tumble Jack Bauer on 24, or maybe you remember him from The Lost Boys, or from being the son of the Montreal Expos loving Donald Sutherland. Regardless, you probably have an image in your mind of him as a tough guy. So, perhaps, you will be surprised to find out he is releasing a “folk tinged” album.
Yes, Sutherland will be releasing Down in the Hole, an 11-track record, this summer. It will be the first album for the actor, because, you know, better late than never. Although, technically this is not his first foray into the music industry, because Sutherland is one of the founders of the record label Ironworks, and he collaborated with Ironworks’ Jude Cole to bring Down in the Hole to life.
“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,” said Sutherland about his album. He’s not merely releasing some music, though. He’s also embarking on a 26-date tour starting April 14 in Milwaukee. Has anybody been craving a folksy album from Jack Bauer? Probably not, but now we all have the opportunity to hear what it sounds like.
