The White Buffalo Make a “Wish” for Struggling Soldiers

After hearing the White Buffalo’s diverse, heartfelt tunes and being instantly hooked by singer Jake Smith’s full-bodied vocals, I’ve pretty much decided to join the herd. Here the longhaired Southern Californian delivers an aching solo performance of “Wish It Was True,” which finds him portraying a soldier struggling after his return from war. After first confronting his parents, he turns his resentment toward the country as a whole, bitterly asking where we are in his time of need. Take a look.
