has been winning fans, critical acclaim and their own special
place in the pantheon of Canadian rock music since 1981, when
they broke onto the independent music scene at Vancouver's legendary
Smilin' Buddha Cabaret.
Brad Merritt, who co-founded 5440 with guitarist and vocalist
Neil Osborne, has been honoured with fellow band members by the American
Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) for their
song I Go Blind, which received the most US airplay in 1997
as a result of Hootie and the Blowfish's successful cover version.
The band's June 2003 release Goodbye Flatland (Divine Industries/RED)
is their 10th studio album will be supported this summer with tour

their unique brand of music and powerful live performances. Their
gold and platinum records include: Since When, Trusted By
Millions, Smilin'Buddha Cabaret, Dear Dear, Show
Me and Sweeter Things.
as a true Canadian Rock'n'Roll Road Warrior, Merritt has dedicated
himself to a challenge that many musicians know all too well
-- finding a decent cup of coffee. "As a service to my peers,
I should compile the Great Canadian Coffee Atlas - the best
and worst coffee spots from coast to coast," he says.
he found the road to the best coffee always led him home to his
beloved French press. It also inspired him to create the Decent
Coffee Cosy, an insulating wrap-around jacket designed to
keep coffee hot in the French press. No longer would expensive home-brewed
coffee go waste by getting cold between cups. Solving this cold-coffee
conundrum proves once again that necessity truly is the mother of
The Decent Coffee Cosy, the
French press and
coffee history and culture!
