Event Details

Where his 2020 debut record Live Forever introduced the experiences and places that shaped
Bartees Strange (Flagey, Brussels; Mustang, Oklahoma), Farm to Table zeros in on the people –
specifically his family – and those closest to him on his journey so far. With his career firmly on the
ascent, Farm to Table examines Bartees’ constantly shapeshifting relationship with life post-Live
Forever. It also speaks to a deeper lore that says, don’t forget where you came from, and this album
is why. Across 10 songs, Bartees is celebrating the past, moving towards the future and fully
appreciating the present.
Born Bartees Leon Cox Jr. in Ipswich, England to a military father and opera-singer mother Bartees
had a peripatetic early childhood before eventually settling in Mustang, Oklahoma. Later, Bartees cut
his teeth playing in hardcore bands in Washington D.C. and Brooklyn whilst working in the Barack
Obama administration and (eventually) the environmental movement. Since charting a path as a
solo artist, Bartees Strange has released two records in quick succession: an EP reimagining songs
by The National (Say Goodbye To Pretty Boy, 2020) and his debut album proper Live Forever
