Reviewers are applauding Sutherland's vocals, guitar licks and songwriting style:
"Kiefer Sutherland...slows down and unwinds on his debut album, a collection of 11 rough-edged country songs...The album has an unexpected, unvarnished authenticity that is pleasant, if sometimes familiar."
- Jill Lawless, Associated Press
"Kiefer Sutherland's new album DOWN IN A HOLE casts the popular actor in the role of talented songwriter/musician, something as unexpected as a 24 plot twist. His voice and original material are strong, begging the question, "Kiefer, what took you so long?"
- Mike Ragogna, Huffington Post
"Highlighted by his gravelly, whiskey-soaked growl, 49-year-old Kiefer Sutherland's debut set of electric guitar-enhanced Southern rockers and smoky barroom ballads fares better than most other actors' first releases."
- Ian Drew, US Weekly
"The perfect soundtrack for your Americana, dive bar road trip, "All She Wrote" starts off with an intro that would sound right at home during the duel scene in a modern western. Sutherland's gritty vocals overlap electric guitar and crashing drums..."
- Kat Harlton, Lithium Magazine
"This record is the closest thing I've ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. 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," Sutherland said of DOWN IN A HOLE.
Sutherland recently wrapped up a North American tour where he sold out venues across the U.S. and Canada. Additional dates for this fall will be announced soon.
