KIEFER SUTHERLAND UNLEASHES 'OPEN ROAD,' BACK ON THE ROAD IN 2019
Kiefer Sutherland's passion for the road and appreciation for the men and women behind the big rigs appears in his new featured track, "Open Road," AVAILABLE TODAY from his forthcoming album, Reckless & Me. Kiefer will also return to the road for select tour dates in 2019, including performances in Mt.Crested Butte, Colorado as well as France, Germany and England (additional dates to be added).
Kiefer collaborated with longtime manager and producer Jude Cole on "Open Road," which features world class musicians like Brian MacLeod on drums, Chris Chaney on bass, Waddy Wachtel on electric guitar, Jim Cox on piano, Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Chaz Mason, Samantha Nelson and Carmel Echols on background vocals as well as Cole on acoustic guitar.
After 50 shows in 3 months across 9 countries in 2018, Kiefer will continue playing select festivals and venues across North America and Europe in 2019. During his lengthy shows, he also covers some of his favorite songs from Merle Haggard and Tom Petty, displaying equal ease with both rock classics and country standards. Musically his shows encompass country, rock, blues and Americana driven by his gritty vocals and anchored by his gift for telling compelling stories in his songwriting.
Though he loves writing and recording, the stage holds a special place in his heart, and for the last three years, he’s toured extensively earning the acclaimed actor a reputation as a relentless road warrior. His primary motivation as an artist is the thrill of forging that connection with his audience through the music. "I couldn't have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring. To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience, for me, has proven to be priceless," Kiefer said.
A riveting performer, Kiefer engages the audiences with his self-deprecating wit and shares the stories behind the highly personal songs that populate his 2016 debut album Down In A Hole, and his forthcoming new release Reckless & Me.
