54•40 counts 36 years, 22 albums ahead of 2 hometown gigs

Type “54-40” in Google; you’ll likely get “14” before the numerous achievements of one of the city’s most famous — and long-lived — bands.

But 54-40’s release Keep on Walking next month also happens to be the quartet’s fourteenth full album.

Launched in an East Vancouver bar in 1981, they boast three platinum-selling albums – Dear Dear, Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret, and Trusted By Millions – and one Canadian gold-selling album, Since When.

This year, they were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and their new single, the imminent album’s title track, was released in May.
