The White Buffalo

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. Smith's debut album, Hogtied Like a Rodeo, arrived in 2002, and he followed it three years later with The White Buffalo EP, which was produced by Eels' Koool G Murder. Released in 2008, Hogtied Revisited found Smith re-recording his first album in a friend's bedroom. Gigs with artists including Gomez, Ziggy Marley, and Donavon Frankenreiter, and in locales as widespread as Japan and Australia spread the word of mouth about the White Buffalo. When pro surfer Chris Malloy heard Smith's music, he included the song "Wrong" in his movie Shelter, and White Buffalo tracks later appeared on the TV shows Sons of Anarchy and Californication. The 2010 EP Prepare for Black & Blue brought Smith to the attention of Unison Music, which signed the White Buffalo; the label's heads, Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, also co-produced 2012's full-length Once Upon a Time in the West, featuring the talents of drummer Matt Lynott and bassist Tommy Andrews. It also placed on several Americana charts. Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways, a much angrier, prophetic and political concept album that was issued in 2013.

The recording was greeted with wide acclaim and it made Smith restless. Eager to alert new fans to what he'd done before and revisit a work terrain he felt was imperfect, he re-recorded Hogtied Like a Rodeo as a much rowdier, rocking, honky tonk album. Hogtied Revisited was issued in 2014.

Smith's work has always been marked by characters who experienced the darker, hard-bitten aspects of what life had to offer. He began working with Dorn and Witkin again in 2015 on a series of new songs revolving around such real or imagined people in dire circumstances. Entitled Love & the Death of Damnation, its music drew on country, blues, folk, and gospel sources. Released in August, the album placed on various charts. ~ Heather Phares

Come back to Australia saw him at great escape festival in 2005? Great side show at a pub candlesticks to boot. Sad as S**t but very edgy and could cut the air with a rubber spoon. Been following for years now I wish he would come to Melbourne and teach some of these bearded bun wearing kids how to write good music in a minor key !!!

Sons Of Anarchy is also how I started listening to The White Buffalo. He and Vedder have similar sounding voices, and I love that, but I'd say his voice is a tad lower. Definitely love both and love how both Eddie Vedder and The White Buffalo end up on each other's stations.

Saw him live and was bowled over. Few acts play live and live up to or surpass the CD. Jake does.

Pure Americana! This dude is legit, great story teller, and a humble dude. You'll find him sitting at the bar before gigs talking to everybody.

Been going to his gigs for several years ...from the smallest venue in seal beach to larger venues. I always thought he stole every show if opening with his power and tone. Glad he has been signed as it was a crime for the Buffalo to not go somewhere.

Fighter pilot song gives me the chills and wish he would throw down the Patrick swayze joint.
