He Flies: Some Info

3 Apr

We just finished a CD called He Flies, and it’s streaming free at BandCamp:

The CD is also available at CD Baby and digital downloads are available there, too. Digital downloads are also available at Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, and everywhere else you can download music. (At iTunes just get into the store & search for “He Flies by Kent McDaniel.”)

The lyrics to all the songs are up at BandCamp, too.

And here are the people who played on the album:


Alpha Stewart plays percussion and/or drum kit on “May You Still Believe,” “He Flies,” and “Big Jim.” He’s who we count on for drums when we play out.


Robert Marshall plays drums on “Zombies Stink (& Vampires Suck),” “May Third,” & “Your Love Set Me Free.” He also mixed and mastered the album, at The Cave Recording in Evanston, Illinois.


Dorothy McDaniel, plays bass and flute.

For some reason, I write few love songs, but “Your Love Set Me Free” is one. The best move I ever made was hooking up with Dorothy, my wife, and this one’s about her. You can click on the icon below to hear it. (It sounds way better through headphones) The lyrics are below, too.


Your Love Set Me Free


Your love set me Free. Your love set me free.

Up in the ozone, I was alone


When you caught my eye, I felt my spirit fly


You saw through my jive, made me be alive


You made me a man and glad that I am


Oh, my God, your lips, are worth all your trips


Yeah, you knock me out. There’s not a shred of doubt.


We  been together, always and forever


You’re rain drifting down on a meadow,

and by now I think you know
