American Ma de
The White Buffalo returns
Americana songwriter Jake Smith AKA The White Buffalo releases his latest album DarkestDarks,Lightest
Lights on 13 October, and while his compelling lyrical storytelling is very much in place, it finds the guitar dynamic changing for some songs. “I approached guitar with a more riff-based attack,” Smith tells us. “Less chordal then ever before.” That’s very much apparent on lead-off single TheHeartAndSoulOfThe
Blues, but the Buffalo is still keeping his rig simple. “For acoustic, I exclusively played a Taylor 710e [pictured] recorded with Neumann U47 fet mic w/ a Neve 31102 preamp,” he reveals.
