NPR Tiny Desk Contest Submission, 'When I Was Younger, I Cried' a Cowbirl Song

March 10, 2020


I have thrown my Cowbirl hat in the ring for this year's NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest! Here's a bit about what this song means to me, we filmed it in our old sheep barn and we hope you enjoy it--


Cowbirl artist Ismay explores life in the rural American West, gender identity, and connection to place. While living and working on the family ranch for the past 5 years, they have found meaning in deep connection to the natural world, and uncovered how the setting of isolation in nature can unexpectedly provide comfort to a person trying to understand and express their non-binary gender.
