In a world of shuttered music venues and snatched-away opportunities, Ireland’s music community continues to defy the odds – with young, emerging artists defiantly rising above seemingly insurmountable challenges, and flying the flag for their country.

Hear: ‘Save The Day’ from her debut album Hemet.
Watch: Her album launch performance of Hemet at the Black Gate.
