The White Buffalo also recently shared the song “The Observatory”, which premiered on Rolling Stone Country who writes, “There’s something ancient about Jake Smith’s voice… it’s the perfect instrument with which to ponder the secrets of the universe or the ties that bind his fellow humans, which is just what Smith does on the newest White Buffalo track, ‘The Observatory.'”

Known as The White Buffalo, songwriter Jake Smith has resolutely charted his own single-minded musical course for more than a decade. His captivating live presence and workingman’s approach to his craft has earned him a loyal fan base nationwide, as well as glowing reviews from press outlets including Rolling StoneEntertainment Weekly, Paste, and more. Smith has toured alongside Ryan Bingham, Jack Johnson, Xavier Rudd, State Radio, Ziggy Marley, and most recently Flogging Molly. He has also been featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live – watch his performance HERE
Over the course of five albums, various EPs, and numerous prominent placements in such high-profile outlets as TV’s Sons of Anarchy and Californication, Smith has built a powerful body of work that marks him as a genuine original. He was nominated for a 2015 Emmy for his song “Come Join The Murder“, co-written with Bob Thiele & Kurt Sutter for the final episode of Sons Of Anarchy. The California-bred artist writes timeless, vividly detailed character studies, tapping into the emotional lives of various misfits, outsiders and troubled souls with insight and compassion. His songwriting is matched by his rough-hewn, deeply expressive voice, and by his distinctive instrumental arrangements, which are simultaneously intimate and epic.
The voice inside him whirls… hitting the air like a fist.”
Jeffrey Fleishman, L.A. Times
“..he’s a turbo charged Bruce Springsteen, equal parts brain and brawn”
