new music: eclectic funkster marcus alan ward’s ‘little sunshine’ is an instant mood-boaster

June 23, 2016

One of the best feelings in the world, to me, is falling in love with a song less than 30 seconds in. Being unceremoniously introduced to the perfect combination of sounds and rhythms that both relaxes and energizes you. At the risk of over-hyping it, Marcus Alan Ward’s ‘Little Sunshine’ is such a song! The smooth, infectious melody are paired with soulful vocals and 70s-inspired harmonies that come together in sweet funk-soul bliss. Treat yo self, listen to ‘Little Sunshine’ down below.
