Living the High Life


Highlife Records and Music has been an important fixture on the Drive for forty years, selling an eclectic range of world music, jazz, and instruments. The store also sells albums written, produced, and performed by Highlife’s owner, Kevin Finseth.

I am glad that the Vancouver Sun ran this feature for the launch of his latest album called Hertzog. Stuart Derdeyn describes Finseth’s music as “[p]aired with the lovely cello work of jazz cellist Peggy Lee, additional instrumentation from producer A-Dub and the bowed kemenche and wordless vocals of Turkish artist Asli Maj, the music is like a soundtrack to a film by Greek director Theo Angelopoulus.”

The store is always worth a visit!
