Wistful, but hopeful—and perfectly illustrating her vibe as “Mary Poppins with a broken heart”—Melanie Peterson’s latest single “Sunshine” is a breath of TLC for a broken heart. And even more poignant is the fact that it’s being addressed to an ex in need of some heart healing.
The lyrics are full of wise and warm advice from a trusted friend, compassionate and positive—all delivered with Peterson’s sweet, lilting vocals.
You don’t have to take my word for it: give “Sunshine” a listen on her Bandcamp page.
