Following a string of sold-out shows in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, The White Buffalo has announced the first leg of a national fall tour, kicking off with a hometown show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on 9/28. After charting his own musical course for more than a decade, the imposing singer/songwriter (aka Jake Smith) has been the subject of much buzz from loyal fans and new listeners alike. FX’s Sons Of Anarchy has made his music a mainstay on their show with 6 song placements (more than any other musician they have featured). Later this month, he’ll be sharing the stage with rock heavyweights Aerosmith and Kid Rock to celebrate Harley-Davidson’s 110th Anniversary. His upcoming new album, Shadows, Greys, & Evil Ways is out 9/10 from Unison Music Group.
The 14 songs of Shadows, Greys, & Evil Ways (produced by Grammy nominated producers Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn) tackle the big themes of human existence: sin and redemption, faith and doubt, mortality and the possibility of an afterlife. In early praise, the Wall Street Journal called the album "riveting" and Entertainment Weekly called his Sons Of Anarchy-featured tune "The Whistler" "awesome."
