Ironworks was a small independent record label created and owned by the lead actor of the Fox TV hit series 24, Kiefer Sutherland, and his long-time friend and fellow musician, Jude Cole.

The studio's first signed band, whom it is also known for, is Rocco DeLuca's band, Rocco DeLuca and the Burden.

Ironworks Studio was housed in an old ironworks foundry in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.

The studio is managed by guitar tech "Captain" Mark Somgynari, and it operates five to six days a week, 12 hours a day. "We don't rent the studio out," Sutherland said. "It's literally for bands that we have developed and that we're finding. It's unbelievable how many fantastic bands there are out there that are just not being heard. We just want to make records and try to figure out how to get them out there."

Sutherland also goes on to state that: "I don't play in a band, and I didn't build the studio so I could make a vanity record. Jude and I built it together, and it was really to start a label that was going to help young artists that might not be able to find their way in what is becoming a very shrinking corporate music industry and try to make records for them, and either get them out independently or actually use the distribution apparatus of a major."
