Kiefer Sutherland brings his music to Blackburn’s King George’s Hall on Saturday 22nd February 2020
Kiefer Sutherland follows his critically acclaimed 2016 debut ‘Down In A Hole’ by releasing the follow-up ‘Reckless & Me’. ‘Reckless & Me’ is the second chapter in a musical journey that has seen Sutherland play hundreds of shows. Initial praise included The Guardian who stated, “The action star’s whiskey-sodden country music set is genuinely poignant,” while Rolling Stone noted his “edgy vocals blended with passion.”
While country music is the beating heart of ‘Reckless & Me’, its songs span wider Americana, encompassing folk, rock, blues and a whole lot more. They’re all connected by Sutherland’s 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. They’re personal stories from my life. As lucky as I am, there are things you can’t avoid: friends of yours are going to die, you’re 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 there’s something comforting about that. At least to me.”
