Kiefer Sutherland has been a professional actor for over thirty years, starring in movies such as Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, Young Guns, Flatliners, A Few Good Men, Melancholia, Dark City, A Time To Kill, Phone Booth and, most recently, Forsaken. His portrayal of Jack Bauer in the tv series 24 earned him Golden Globe and Emmy awards.
In 2002, Sutherland, with his music partner and best friend JUDE COLE, began a small record label called Ironworks. The goal of the label was to record local musicians and distribute their music at a time when the industry was going through a monumental shift. Some of their artists included Rocco DeLuca and The Burden, Lifehouse, Ron Sexsmith and Honey Honey. In 2009, Sutherland left the label to recharge and figure out what he was going to do next.
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 debut album Down In a Hole. (click to hear the album on Soundcloud).
