The White Buffalo Once Upon A Time In The West Vinyl LP

Working under the apt nameplate The White Buffalo, singer/songwriter Jake Smith has resolutely charted his own single-minded course for more than a decade. An imposing figure with a voice to match, a resonant, roughhewn baritone, Smith writes about rebels, outsiders and troubled souls battling their way through the obstacles life throws in their paths, telling timeless tales generally set against recognizably contemporary backdrops. 

The White Buffalo’s 2012 Unison Music release - Once Upon a Time in the West - features songs that are rooted in the everyday struggles, of both epic and personal scales, with elements of blues, country western, folk, and classic rock. Influenced by story-tellers like Waylon Jennings, Tom Waits and Bad Religion, the album ranges in themes from slices of life in the shadows ("The Bowery") to coming out of a battlefield ("Ballad of a Deadman") to dark heroic fantasies ("The Pilot,") and putting the concepts of family and country under the microscope ("I Wish It Was True").

"The whole point of songwriting is taking people on an emotional journey, like a mini-movie," says Smith. "Most of my songs capture moments in time, small snippets of life and some paint broader pictures. It’s less about the Old West, than the new one I grew up in, with some politics and some nostalgic memories of my childhood in Southern California."
