    The White Buffalo represents an authentic homage to the times of hard touring, hard drinking artists who truly lived what they sang about.  Seamlessly moving from heartfelt ballads to raucous bar songs,  The White Buffalo sings with honesty and thoughtful reflection as he wanders the road, sharing his music.  Everything about him is big, from his imposing physical size to his amazing vocal range.

    The White Buffalo’s latest album, "Once Upon a Time in the West", (Unison Music-fall, 2011) 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").

"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."
