Kiefer Sutherland with Special Guests Marc Copely & Rocco DeLuca
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’, ‘A Time to Kill’, ‘Dark City’, ‘Melancholia’ and most recently, a western called ‘Forsaken’, as well as the TV series ‘24’, ‘Designated Survivor’ and the ‘The Fugitive’. He will soon be seen in the film ‘Violence of Action’ with Chris Pine and Ben Foster and ‘The First Lady,’ on Showtime playing Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Unknown to many, during his career he has taken on other vocations with the same kind of dedication and commitment. The first one, beginning around 1992, was that of a cattle rancher and competitive cowboy (roper) in the USTRC team roping circuit. He ran a successful ranch with partner John English for almost a decade and during that time won numerous roping events around the country including Phoenix, Indio and the Los Angeles Open.
In 2002 Kiefer Sutherland 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 2009 Sutherland left the label to recharge and figure out what he was going to do next.
Over the last five years Sutherland has focused on developing his music career. His debut album: ‘Down In A Hole’ was released in 2016. He released a second album, ‘Reckless & Me’, in 2019 and has toured both records extensively both in the US, Canada and Europe. ‘Reckless & Me’ entered the UK Album Chart at number 9 and topped the Americana, Country and Independent charts in the UK on release. It was also the number 2 selling Country Album in the UK in 2019.
Talking about his soon to be released third album, ‘Bloor Street’, Sutherland said: ‘Writing and recording this album was a unique experience given the pandemic and subsequent restrictions that followed. I found myself afforded time like I had never experienced before, which allowed me to not only reflect upon my life and what I see for the future but afforded me the time to write about it.
Music, whether touring or recording has always been a personal extension of storytelling for me. I couldn’t be more excited to share these new songs and, hopefully sooner than later, play them for audiences around the world.’
The Album ‘Bloor Street’ was released in January 2022.
