About Walk Off The Earth
Walk off the Earth is a Canadian indie pop band from Burlington, Ontario. Formed in 2006, the band is best known for its unique music videos that feature covers and original compositions. The group’s music videos utilize instruments such as the ukulele and theremin and often make use of looping samples. All of the band’s recorded music and videos are produced by member and multi-instrumentalist Gianni “Luminati” Nicassio. In 2012, the band achieved global fame when their cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” went viral on YouTube, garnering over 175 million views in four months.
In 2012, Walk off the Earth signed a recording contract with Columbia Records and has since released several albums and toured extensively. The band’s music has been featured in a variety of TV shows and movies, including the theme song for the Catalan TV show El Foraster and the soundtrack of the 2015 animated film Snowtime!. In 2016, Walk off the Earth won a Juno award for Group of the Year. In 2018, band member Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor passed away from natural causes, leading the group to cancel their scheduled performance at the Niagara Falls New Year’s Eve Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television special. However, the group continued on its 2019 tour in honor of Taylor’s memory.
