Chicago Farmer & The Fieldnotes
The son of a small town farming community, Cody Diekhoff logged plenty of highway and stage time under the name Chicago Farmer. Profoundly inspired by fellow midwesterner John Prine, he’s a working-class folk musician to his core.
“I love the energy, music, and creativity of Chicago, but at the same time, the roots and hard work of my small town”
From punk rock to Hank Williams, Diekhoff’s musical journey shaped his identity as Chicago Farmer.
A lot has changed since Americana, acoustic folk artist Mike Mangione left his hometown of Chicago for L.A in pursuit of a music career. Subtlety, silence, and patience combined with maturation and time has given birth to a woven lush complexity.
“Songs utilize a broader palette through the power of imagery, poetry and mystery to create a complete picture that is accessible to each individual”, Mike Mangione argues.
