Simply put this artist is ready for the big big time! I've know about thewhitebuffalo Aka Jake Smith for
many years and it's about time people have noticed this super star in the making for his talent! When
you hear a song from a band that's not on the radio most the time it's clear why they are not on the radio.
Most every time I hear a song something is lacking and big time! It could be the vocals, the lyrics, the
style of the band isn't exciting etc...
The opposite is true with the white buffalo. When You listen to his songs featuring his Golden voice
you wonder "WHY IN THE HELL ISN'T THIS GUY FAMOUS ALREADY!"... While I was in
the greater Los Angelo's area I checked a show out and wow is all I can say wow! The show was at
local beach side bar I believe it was ZOEYS but who knows it was a while back!
His band was top notch, the crowd On fire, The bar was full talking elbow room only ammed packed
to Hear The White buffalo Rock the House down! As many awaited the artist they came to see What I
will take from the show was how cool thewhitebuffalo was in person! With a packed house he took a
moment to chat with me.
At the Time I was back Packing through California and I did what ever I could to make the Show in
Hermosa Beach, California! I can't recall the name of the venue for some reason but the place was
Packed wall to wall! I recall what we talked about like it was a second ago. I Said "Hey man I've been a
fan since Your profile has new on purevolume and youtube". Told Him a was a big fan from Michigan
and I was visiting California and had to see his show
I know that's not the coolest thing to say but The white buffalo smiled and in a humbled relaxing way
made me feel like I was the only person at the bar and Thanked me for coming out as the bar gave the
signal for the show to start off he went! What a nice guy I felt! I mean a really Nice person! He was 1,000
times cooler in person and very humbled and super attentive! Simply put the guy was a star on stage and in
real life to his fans which matters the most!
I know he had a ton to do before he went on stage that night. Before a singer goes on stage there's allot of things
you think about before the show goes on. You think about the set list, about the crowd, You get into the zone, You
think about your guitar is it tuned, the parts your band was working on the night before etc.. The list is endless...
When we talked I told him
Check out this Timeless performances "wow" is all one can say!
how much I loved his songs and wished him good luck with everything in the future... I knew that second that he was going places and since then he's done exactly what I predicted. With a smile in a very unassuming way he went off to the stage grabbed his acoustic and without a moments notice hit the E chord opening up with a power chord starting out the song The Madman. From the opening note he commanded the stage and cemented the fact that at the time he was the most under-rated artist on earth. That show was a few years ago and I knew for the live performances and the strength of his songwriting he would be where he is today. Not only are his songs from his albums full of punchlines, sweeping rhythms and world class vocals but his Melody's are impossible to erase from your mind!
Thewhitebuffalo's featured song "Love song number 1"
The song was an instant hit to my ears the second I heard the song. The song performed live gave me goose bumps! Sounds Corney but hey it's true! The place went nut's and for a local artist man that's crazy! The audience sang along to every word, holding lighters high in the air, back and fourth singing loud! For a moment I thought I was back in the mid-west I had to check the room and make sure I wasn't dreaming!
California is a cool place, Lot's of fun but that night I really caught a rare glimpse of the people L/A finally loosening up and just have a good time! Cali can be like New York just with palm trees at times it's a very busy serious place at times.
Thewhitebuffalo's videos are performed live which I think is genius! What's most telling about thewhitebuffalo is the level of his dynamics in his songs. I would never tell anyone to run to youtube and check out every video an artist has but this guy is so incredible you should Naked, raw, and a Worlds best! WOW Does the White buffalo Rule!.
Thewhitebuffalo's ability to utilize dynamics while playing live and in the studio is what Set's him apart. His songwriting is YEARS BEYOND most anyone I hear that's not big time... His live performances make the song even stronger than the recordings from his CD. This is what separates the men from the boy's and Thewhitebuffalo's ability to hold melody's, lock in rhythm and build on hooks is second to none. Yes I'm glowing over this artist! He's worked his ass off to be great and it shows!
His voice has been compared to Eddie Vedder, another artist I think the world about but to me his voice offers even more than Mr. Vedder which is mind blowing to imagine. I'm a big fan of thewhilebuffalo, I'm a co-founder of this site and thewhitebuffalo is the first artist I wanted to do a review about hands down. I will contact his management and see if we can get him for an interview and once we get things really moving with our site i.e. once we are fully out of the beta phase and into promotion.
We would love to have him as a featured artist and we hold hope that in the future that we can somehow catch the attention of the people he has working with him so we can feature him here on theneverendingstage.
Thewhitebuffalo is an incredible artist and a true legend in the making which may sound crazy but it's 100% true! As a side note his music has been used nationally on TV commercials and his songs showcased for millions. His song the matador and a few others has been featured on the SMASH HIT SHOW "SONS OF ANARCHY!".
He's currently on tour headlining with shows from L/A To New York! I believe just got done with a New Cd for more info and most important current info check him out whenever You can! Simply put he's a living legend! I just can't say enough about this artist, I'm a fan, a big fan and it's been a honor to be a fan and I thank him for the joy I've received from his music through out the years! I would review each song, make comments, and do a full music review, but that wouldn't cover anything! You must hear it for yourself, it's impossible to explain by words...
