Every so often, you find an artist who is on the cusp of something extraordinary. You know that their music has its own momentum, and all you can do is enjoy the journey. I believe Co. Fermanagh's Rose Connolly is this artist, if you keep scrolling you'll understand why. Plus, her taste in music is *chef's kiss*
