On Friday, February 12th, singer and songwriter Jake Smith of The White Buffalo released his 3rd album entitled “Love And The Death Of Damnation.”
I love the upbeat tone of the songs, the catchy lyrics and the deep, soulful voice of Smith paired with a guitar. You would never guess by his voice that he was born in Oregon and raised in California. His style is a great mixture of rock, folk and country music. I definitely feel like songs such as Dark Days, Go The Distance, I Got You, and Where Is Your Savior. The lyrics are amazing stories that leave a lasting impression. I found myself listening to Where Is Your Savior three times in a row. It is not my usual choice of music but I’m so glad I have been exposed to Smith and his unique talent.
Overall, I don’t have any criticism for this album aside from offering a clean version of the album for those listeners who may not want vulgar language a part of their listening experience.
Jake Smith has experienced success with his first two albums, landing his songson the hit TV show‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I have no doubts this album will bring additional success for The White Buffalo. Grab an ice-cold beer and take a listen. It’s available now for purchase online and on iTunes.
