One of the most innovative bands ever.

Walk Off the Earth brings back a time when cover versions were something completely normal. Every blues musician, every Rock’n’Roller (and by the way, every Baroque composer) has used, played, quoted, covered songs from colleagues. Not because they could think of nothing new, but as a tribute and a bow, often to give a song a new colour, to gain a new accent. In this tradition, the five Canadians are pleased that they have been asked by renowned bands such as Coldplay, if Walk Off the Earth might not even be able to take over something from them. With their choreographed videos, they reliably add a highly original accent to each track – their version of Gotey’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” played on a guitar made them world-famous in 2012 in one fell swoop. But even with their own songs, such as the recently released “Nomad”, they prove that they can not only process the spiritual good of others. Ryan Marshall, Gianni “Luminati” Nicassio, Mike Taylor, Joel Cassady and Sarah Blackwood are all fantastic musicians.

Their shows live on the constant change between ukulele, theremin, loop station, trumpet, cake forks, lamello and other ordinary and unusual instruments – to enumerate all of them would go far beyond the scope of this text. The individual vocal styles of Marshall, Nicassio and Blackwood, the enchanting harmonies, the versatile arrangements, the driving beats make Walk Off the Earth one of the most innovative bands ever. Already in June, they twisted heads and ears in an exclusive show in Berlin, because even their roadies can not only throw instruments to the musicians precisely and at the right time, but they can even play with a sixth or seventh voice if necessary. So we’re happy that Walk Off the Earth has confirmed a full tour for next April.
