About Walk Off The Earth:
Walk Off the Earth is a Juno Award winning, musical phenomenon taking the world by storm. Based just outside Toronto, their brilliant 5-people-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” blew up on YouTube, gaining over 180 million views. Since then, the band has released multiple successful originals, “Red Hands” (#1 at AAA), “Fire In My Soul” & “Rule The World” (multi-platinum in Canada); sold out venues across the globe, and collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world (Lisa Loeb, Snoop Dogg, Nicky Romero, & Sarah Silverman).
In 2018, the band won a Streamy Award for Best Cover Song for their interpretation of Maroon Five’s “Girls Like You” and released a holiday EP, “Subscribe to the Holidays,” that charted as the #1 independent release in Canada for the last week of November.
In late 2018, the band faced a major and unexpected loss with the sudden death of band member Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor. Mike’s incredible ability behind the keys gave the band a sturdy foundation to soar and create. In the wake of Mike’s passing, and with much difficult consideration, the band decided to move forward and use the opportunity to honor and share the extraordinary legacy Mike left behind. 2019 will be a year full of new and original music from the band. Their independent spirit, unstoppable work ethic, and awe-inspiring creativity has catapulted Walk Off the Earth into new and uncharted waters with only bigger and better things on the horizon.
