More Information

Since the release of "Hogtied like a Rodeo" in 2002, through last year's acclaimed, "Prepare for Black And Blue" EP (Nettwerk), The White Buffalo has driven thousands of miles to dozens of cities performing their songs and connecting with music fans.

The White Buffalo's latest album, "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,") from 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."
