With historic albums like 1987's Show Me and 1994's Smilin' Buddha Cabaret, which yielded big songs like "Nice to Luv You" and "Ocean Pearl," Vancouver quintet 54-40 climbed from college rock stars in the 1980s to national acclaim and chart success. While their early songs featured a jangling folk-rock and post-punk sound that drew similarities to R.E.M., later tracks featured a harsher, electric-driven sound that earned them a string of platinum albums. 54-40's reputation for excellence and consistency persisted into the new millennium, led by singer, guitarist, and lead songwriter Neil Osborne, with albums like Yes to Everything from 2005 and Lost in the City from 2011.
