Fresh from releasing a brand new album, Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland is heading to Exeter for a one-night-only appearance this summer.
He is best known for his roles in movies like Stand By Me and The Lost Boys, as well as the TV series 24 and Designated Survivor, but what you might not know is that Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland is also a talented and critically acclaimed musician.
In 2002, Sutherland, with his music partner and best friend Jude Cole, began a small record label called Ironworks. After leaving the label in 2009 for new ventures, Sutherland returned to music in 2016 with his critically acclaimed debut album Down In A Hole.
Now Sutherland is back with his sophomore album Reckless And Me, spanning country music, Americana, folk, rock, blues and a whole lot more. The album is connected by Sutherlands love of sharing stories, whether by recounting snapshot of his own life or relating the experiences of others.
‘As an actor I know that making a connection with an audience always comes by virtue of the story or the character’, he explains. ‘This is very different. Theyre personal stories from my life. As lucky as I am, there are things you cant avoid: friends of yours are going to die, youre going to be let down, your heart will be broken. Hopefully they help both me and the audience to realise that none of us are alone in trying to get these things in life. And theres something comforting about that. At least to me’.
