Joshua Stearns The very moment I hit play and this story hit my ears, I knew that I had found something very special. An adventure that will take you many, many places, Seven Journeys to a New Home, is undoubtedly a hidden gem. In a world filled with horrible, heartless pop music, Kartmaze shines bright above all of that. A journey indeed and well worth taking often. Check out his other music, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for this album, to me, it is perfection.
