iTunes Review

Moving on from 19th-century folk tales to 21st-century narratives, The White Buffalo (Jake Smith) achieves a new immediacy on his third album, Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways. It seems fitting that this California-based singer/songwriter has become better known thanks to his contributions to the F/X biker series Sons of Anarchy. Smith’s intimidating vocal rumble and penchant for violence-streaked lyrics suggest a steely eyed outlaw worthy of a Cormac McCarthy novel. But as Shadows shows, these aspects of The White Buffalo’s persona reveal just part of the story. Smith’s latest work bristles with political anger and spiritual angst captured in sparse, carefully drawn story lines. Songs like “Joey White” (an unflinching soldier’s tale), “Joe and Jolene” (the story of two desperate lovers), and “Redemption #2" (a backslider’s cry of despair) ennoble the suffering of their characters with vivid lyrics and stirring melodies. Smith’s affinity for tragic balladry can be heard in the rugged, doom-struck imagery of “Set My Body Free” and “The Whistler”; his softer, more playful side is captured in the barroom swing of “Don’t You Want It.”

Can't wait!!

A voice that enters your and goes straight to your soul!

Powerful!!

Saw him do a solo acoustic show a couple of weeks ago in Boston. He played a couple songs off this album and they where amazing. He makes his song writing, and powerful unique voice seem so effortless. I can't wait for this album to come out. I need to hear the rest of the story. Not only was his music amazing he is a cool guy and had a beer with my wife and I after the show. From the songs I've heard this album will be magnificent. I just hope he come back to New England soon!

I'm obsessed

I cannot get enough of this artist I've been slightly obsessed since discovering him a few years ago and I got to see the White Buffalo play live a few weeks ago, incredible performance! I just listened to an online stream of this album and I am blown away. This guy is incredible, I hope he never stops!

The White Buffalo is the project of earthy, Oregon-born and Southern California-raised singer/songwriter Jake Smith, who grew up listening to punk bands like the Descendents and the Circle Jerks and didn't pick up a guitar until age 19. During his college years in the Bay Area, he began writing and performing his own songs, hitting upon the White Buffalo name as one of several suggestions from his friends that he drew out of a hat.
