I was utterly blown away with this latest single by the band The Song Gardeners entitled Love Flows. Love Flows is simply musical beauty at a whole new level, and I testify to that, as this is now my fifth consecutive play and it won’t be my last. Here is a composition bathed in something we desperately as a planet need now, positivity, it is without doubt an absolute must buy song indeed.
