The Sunshine started as a band in the fall 2003.

The band has through their enthusiastic and sparking live shows developed a reputation as one of Swedens best live acts. The Swedish booking agency is called Beat Agency.

The Sunshine's debut album Love was released in September 2005 in Sweden by Groover Recordings and got great reviews in the Swedish music press. The singles got picked up by Swedish music television and radio play lists. Love is a 10 song explosion of strong melodies, happiness and excitement.
