The track is co-written by Love and Theft’s Stephen B. Liles and Eric Gunderson, along with SH’s lead singer/songwriter Natalia Morris. Southern Halo delivers a spring/summer escape with “Sunshine,” a groove-oriented, electrified wave of sound that lifts the listener out of the winter doldrums with high-energy musicianship and dynamic sibling harmonies.
The writers met up in the chill of January, and all three were longing for warmer weather. “The first verse almost wrote itself,” recalls Natalia. “Stephen and Eric immediately created a great, upbeat groove that was perfectly jamming to the theme, so running with it and telling a story of that vacation to escape felt natural. We love it and hope we’ll get to meet up with Love and Theft on the road again soon so we can sing it together live.”
