Saturday, September 7
With a name like "Walk Off The Earth," you might say this band sounds otherworldly. In fact, it's very much grounded in reality.
"We wanted to come up with a name that would make people forget about their problems, not worry about everyday issues," says Gianni Luminati. "And walk off the earth with the music."
Walk Off the Earth is a Juno Award winning, multi-platinum musical phenomenon currently taking the world by storm. Based in Burlington, Ontario (just outside of Toronto), their brilliant 5-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" exploded on YouTube , garnering over 180 million views. Since then, the band has released a string of successful original songs.
