Chicago Farmer

Chicago Farmer (A.K.A. Cody Diekhoff) fans have asked him to release a live album over the years and he finally gave them what they have been asking for! Deikhoff independently release his first live Chicago Farmer album, Quarter Past Tonight, a two-disc set on Aug. 3. With long time studio engineer Chris Harden (I.V. Labs Studio/Chicago) in tow and armed with just his guitar, harmonica and distilled words and stories of heartache, social injustice, hometown pride, love and loss, Cody Diekhoff played two sold out nights at the Apollo Theater in Peoria, IL and captured it all as it went down during those two nights in December of 2017. Fellow renowned and critically-acclaimed folk singer and songwriter Todd Snider refers to Chicago Farmer as “the genuine heir to Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.”

Lyrically driven, Chicago Farmer delves into the social and political issues of today’s world, taking it all in and putting it back out through music as a commentary on modern times in the Midwest. With his unfeigned and relatable approach, Chicago Farmer has earned a place in the heart of this generation’s rise of protest songs. He composes music written and sung by and for the working man, the "regular person", bringing to mind modern day folk tales.
