Get Hip Recording Artist Slim Forsythe has run through a string of interesting "Day Jobs" in his 45 years in the work force. At his most recent post, Old Slim did Fleet Acquisition for the City of Pittsburgh. He worked with Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto.

One of the most exciting initiatives of the Peduto Administration is the goal of creating a 100% Fossil Fuel-Free Fleet by the Year 2030. Slim was involved in the procurement of the City's first four totally Electric Cars and (the topic of today's release) Five (5) "Solar Trees." Each Solar Tree charges two Electric Vehicles over night, giving them up to a 200 mile range. The cars really do "Drive on Sunshine!"

Slim, who recently retired from his City job, was so happy when he got the news that the Trees had arrived, he was inspired to write this song.

He debuted "We're Gonna Drive on Sunshine" with a live performance at Mayor Peduto's News Conference (4/18/2018) accompanied by his "Brothers in Surf," the Turbosonics. Video above!

On August 11th, he goes live again for his record release party at Nied's Hotel.
