Kiefer Sutherland, whose “unexpected, unvarnished authenticity as a singer/songwriter” (Associated Press) and “edgy vocals blended with passion” (Rolling Stone), recently performed 50 shows in 7 countries in less than 3 months during his 2018 Reckless North American and European tour.
Sutherland’s career as a touring and recording artist has catapulted him globally as a respected guitarist and vocalist. A riveting performer, Kiefer engages audiences with his self-deprecating wit and shares the stories behind his highly personal songs that populate his 2016 debut album Down In A Hole, and his forthcoming new release Reckless, including his new single “This is How It’s Done.”
During his lengthy shows, he also covers some of his favorite songs from Merle Haggard and Tom Petty, displaying equal ease with both rock classics and country standards. Musically, his shows encompass country, rock, blues and Americana driven by his gritty vocals and anchored by his gift for telling compelling stories in his songwriting. Though he loves writing and recording, the stage holds a special place in his heart, and for the last three years, he’s toured extensively earning the acclaimed actor a reputation as a relentless road warrior.
His primary motivation as an artist is the thrill of forging that connection with his audience through the music. "I couldn't have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring. To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience, for me, has proven to be priceless," Kiefer said.
