Kiefer Sutherland returns to WNY for Niagara Falls show

All WNY Radio     Sunday, December 11, 2016    



NIAGARA FALLS -- Kiefer Sutherland must have liked it here. Having performed at Buffalo Iron Works over the summer, the actor-turned-country-singer is making a quick re-visit in the form of a Feb. 18 concert at Seneca Niagara Casino & Resort.

Tickets are $45 each for the intimate Bears Den setting at the casino, where Sutherland will showcase his debut album “Down In A Hole.” The country music collection is the culmination of what he calls the “closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary.” In addition to the Iron Works show in May, Sutherland's tour has included performances at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards and on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Sutherland has been a professional actor for over 30 years, starring in movies such as "Stand By Me," "The Lost Boys," "Young Guns," "Flatliners," "A Few Good Men." He is perhaps most known these days for his award-winning role as Jack Bauer on the hit FOX series "24." Sutherland now stars on the hit ABC series "Designated Survivor."

Unknown to many during the course of his career, Sutherland has taken on other vocations with the same kind of dedication and commitment - one of those being music. In 2002, Sutherland, with his music partner and best friend Jude Cole, began a small record label called Ironworks. The goal of this label was to record local musicians and distribute their music at a time when the music industry was going through a monumental shift. Some of their artists included Rocco DeLuca and the Burden, HoneyHoney and Billy Boy On Poison.

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, encouraged Sutherland to record them, 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. The collaboration resulted in Sutherland's debut album, "Down In A Hole."

He hit the road for the first time earlier this year, and has performed the album live across the country.

"All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences," Sutherland said. "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."

He continued, "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."
