The White Buffalo - Words and Music - 2012

by Russ Borris

The White Buffalo stopped by to chat and play a few songs from his latest album, Once Upon a Time in the West, and his voice sounded as big as ever. When I first heard the music of The White Buffalo, it seemed that he was as elusive as his moniker. There wasn't a lot of info on Jake Smith or his music, but over the last year or so, his story has grown. While there may be some challenges as a grass roots artist, Jake sees them as more of a positive. It's clear, too, that his music and storytelling are evolving. Many characters make their way into these songs. Check out the down-on-his-luck widower in "The Bowery."
