at the heartland

 Guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Kent McDaniel makes Americana music: blues, roots rock, country, and jazz.  He works as a single, with a drummer and bassist, or with a fourth piece as The Kent McDaniel Band.

An SIU grad originally from Metropolis, Kent stayed in Carbondale several years after graduation playing music full time. He then moved to Chicago, where he lived and played for many years. Since moving back to Carbondale in early 2018, he’s appeared regularly at such venues as PKs, Tres Hombres, and Brews Brothers and on WDBX’s Lonesome Roys’s Country Hoedown. He also hosts a show Friday afternoons on WDBX, Down Home Cookin’. And in August, 2018 downstate blues legend Tawl Paul released  Kent’s song “When the Blues Come Knockin'”, which has received much airplay both in southern Illinois and around the country.

To hear recordings of Kent’s original songs streaming free, go to Band Camp

Below are two videos of him performing live.  (Headphones make them sound more like live.) Under the videos, are three songs from a recent live appearance  on WDBX radio
