Sunshine works as a studio session singer and comes from a family of musicians. Her highlights onstage when not performing with Furthur include performing with the king of the funky drums, Zigaboo Modeliste, and many many amazing tours and performances with SoVoSo and the groove driven rock band Passenger.
