wbw-108

White Buffalo Woman is a young, howling mess crouching on all fours, readying itself to pounce on the world of rock ’n’ roll.

White Buffalo Woman Started in Minerva Ohio in Drummer Joe’s basement below their family-run Funeral Home. White Buffalo Woman is comprised of Evan Rutledge (Vocals), Adam Murphy (Guitar), Alex Leggett (Bass) Devin Bezeredi (Guitar) and Joe Wales (Drums) fuse rock, blues, psychedelic, souland punk into an explosion of new music.

They have played in multiple states and opened formultiple acts including Dex Romweber, Patrick Sweany, The Buffalo Killers, Dan Sartain, Jacuzzi Boys, The Ettes, James Leg and The Stone Foxes.

Their most recent Self titled CD/LP is released by Grimtale in early 2016. They have released a 7” vinyl record “My Days/ This Town” (released on Grimtale Records) in 2012, followed by a self released four song EP in 2013 and a 7″ single “Like You Used To Do/Always on My Mind” released on Grimtale records in 2014. This sublime debut album got them airplay on Little Steven’s “Underground Garage” on SiriusXM and a thumbs-up from J. Geils frontman singer Peter Wolf. Contents veer from organ-laced garage rock to Southern-fried soul to uncannily Stonesy, all great fun.

“White Buffalo Woman is carving a niche for itself in the Northeast Ohio scene, with a sound that can veer from ’60s garage-rock to soul, blues to punk, R&B to psychedelic in the space of a single bar set. –About Magazine – July 2016
“The band performs with plenty of swagger on the album. A plodding ballad like “Baby Please” features woozy vocals that would make Mick Jagger proud, and “You Will See” features a nasty mid-song guitar solo that nicely accompanies Rutledge’s enthusiastic yelps. Though retro-leaning, the songs sound as contemporary as anything by Cage the Elephant or the Black Keys.” -Jeff Niesel – Cleveland Scene – July 2016
“Fans of blues-centered rock and roll will immediately catch the grooves White Buffalo Woman are laying down.  They throw some vintage soul and r&b into the mix and even sprinkle on a bit of power pop for your sweet tooth.  There’s never been a gimmick with WBW.  They write rock and roll songs and they’re pretty damn good at it.  Hop on the train now before you’re left in the dust.” –David Hampton – slyvinyl.com – May 2016
“This sublime debut album from hungry young Minerva band White Buffalo Woman got them airplay on Little Steven’s “Underground Garage” on SiriusXM and a thumbs-up from J. Geils frontman singer Peter Wolf. Contents veer from organ-laced garage rock to Southern-fried soul to uncannily Stonesy, all great fun.” Dan Kane – Canton Repository – December 2015

“The Canton-area band has created a record that’s full of soulful tunes like the R&B-infused tearjerker “Always on My Mind” and latest single “Find My Love,” an organ and rhythm guitar driven rocker that sounds like a lost J. Geils Band hit. In short, White Buffalo Woman has the chops to propel the band into the same rare air that produced fellow Northeast Ohio acts like Boz Scaggs, Chrissie Hynde, the O’Jays, Devo and Dave Grohl. – Kevin Wierzbicki – AXS – January 2016

“On the basis of White Buffalo Woman’s new EP and previous vinyl 45 — rootsy meldings of garage rock, blues and Memphis-style soul — the band is the Canton area’s answer to Kings of Leon.” – Dan Kane – Canton Repository – March 2013
