Kiefer Sutherland has been a professional actor for over forty years. He has distinguished himself in many films such as "Stand By Me", "Young Guns", "Dark City", "Melancholia", and of course the series "24 Hours". But the actor has several strings to his bow, since he also excels in music! Now, when he does not shoot, the actor takes his guitar and walks the stages of the world to defend his own compositions.
He is best known as Jack Bauer, in the series "24 Hours", the famous agent of the anti-terrorist cell of the CIA. With this role, Kiefer Sutherland won a Golden Globe in 2002 for best actor in a TV series. He also won an Emmy Award in 2006. In 2008, the actor turns under the direction of French director Alexandre Aja in "Mirors". He then takes on the role of the narrator in "Twelve" and thus finds Joel Schumacher with whom he has already shot several films. In 2011, the actor joined the cast of "Melancholia" by Lars Von Trier before playing in "Pompeii" in 2014.
Outside the cinema, the actor has always been passionate about music, especially country music. In 2002, with Jude Cole, his best friend, Kiefer Sutherland created the label Ironworks. Among the bands on the label are Rocco DeLuca and the Burden, HoneyHoney and Billy Boy On Poison. In 2009, Sutherland left the label to embark on a new adventure.
At the beginning of 2015, Kiefer Sutherland found Cole and played him two songs he had just written. His intention was to record them as demos and offer them to other artists. Cole was enthusiastic about this first listen, and gradually an album began to take shape. Two songs became four, then six, until Cole offered to make a whole record. Down In A Hole", Kiefer Sutherland's first album, was born from this collaboration. The release of the album will be accompanied by a promotional video for the song "Not enough Whiskey". Sutherland then gathers a band and goes on tour for a few months.
In 2019, his second album, "Reckless and Me", was released, including new compositions with Jude Cole. Thus, Sutherland proves to be a multi-talented artist, who has not finished surprising us!
