2016 album from the actor/performer. In early 2015 Sutherland played Jude 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.
Sutherland says of the 11 tracks that make up the album,
“It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary. 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. 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”.
Down in a Hole is a country album containing 11 songs written by Sutherland and Cole. The actor first announced his venture in music in 2015.
