THE WHITE BUFFALO aka singer songwriter Jake Smith kicks off his headline UK tour next week. A force of nature on stage, they whip up a righteous racket. A nuanced songwriter, Jake shows a rough tenderness on his more leisurely narratives resulting in comparisons to Johnny Cash, Eddy Vedder and Steve Earle.
The first date is January 19th in Bristol, and coincides with the release of a number of THE WHITE BUFFALO’s back catalogue titles, which are being made widely available in Europe for the first time. The first being ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ – twelve tracks of hard-driving blues and outlaw country tales.
