Acclaimed roots rocker, The White Buffalo, will bring The Year of the Dark Horse tour to Montana for two shows in 2022. He’ll headline The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, December 9th, and The ELM in Bozeman on Saturday, December 10th.
Jake Smith, professionally known as The White Buffalo, is an Oregon-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist. His music has been featured on several TV shows including Californication, The Punisher, Longmire, This Is Us, and most notably, Sons of Anarchy. His song “Come Join the Murder” was used on Sons of Anarchy, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
Through his 7 studio albums and various EPs, The White Buffalo has developed a dedicated following — amassing more than a million monthly listeners on Spotify alone. His latest album, On the Widow’s Walk, came out in 2020 to positive reviews. Americana UK said:
‘On The Widow’s Walk’ is exactly the sort of record we’ve come to expect from The White Buffalo – big, narrative driven songs delivered with that strong, slightly gruff voice and a solid but not cluttered musicality that lets you hear individual instruments while appreciating the whole backing track.

About The White Buffalo
“At a show in Sacramento, in the space of five minutes, three people came up to me with life-changing stories. They told me how my music had helped them to deal with the loss of people close to them…”
The White Buffalo is about engagement. The White Buffalo makes people laugh and cry. The White Buffalo is truth and wild imagination working together.
The White Buffalo is Jake Smith – singer, songwriter, guitarist, teller of stories, Emmy nominee; an artist whose voice – a timber-shakin’ baritone of gravitas and gravel – seems directly linked to a greater truth; an artist who will not be swayed by fashion or curtailed by genre.
And now, on April 17th 2020, The White Buffalo releases new studio album, “On The Widow’s Walk” – a loosely linked collection of dark thrills produced by Shooter Jennings, who also provides piano and keys. With an eclectic history and catalogue to his illustrious name, Shooter doesn’t believe in sticking to the rules. He works with a diverse selection of artists, from Marilyn Manson to Tanya Tucker, and his collaboration with The White Buffalo has produced a special, signature release.
Of the six studio albums and three EPs thus far released under The White Buffalo banner, this latest 11-track outing is the most collaborative and organic, the most sonically round. It’s also the first for Snakefarm Records, a young label within the Universal Music Group focussing on music that’s roots-driven and real.
