As in life, so in the music business - it's the 1% who are earning 80% of the fame and fortune, while over 90% will spend their entire careers remaining 'undiscovered'.  Even for those who do achieve a level of recognition, it can be fleeting - or limited.

 

This feature-length documentary focuses on the career of Mick Flannery who has achieved significant success in his home country of Ireland, but is virtually unknown abroad.

 

By following Mick around Europe and Ireland over the course of a year and interviewing other musicians, industry professionals, journalists and promoters "How High" examines the life of a working musician, what does it take to succeed and does everyone have the same definition of success?
