Walk Off The Earth
Walk Off The Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomena that is currently taking the world
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” recently exploded on Youtube garnering well over 35 million views in under 2 weeks.
The massive fan response quickly drew attention to their collection of innovative songs and videos spanning
their last 5 years and generated an unprecedented flood of media interest. New fans from around the world
immediately fell in love with the band’s organic, independent, sincere and honest original songwriting, cover
interpretations and beautifully filmed videos. For the past 5 years, the band has built a massive following of dedicated
fans from around the world through their unique and heartwarming approach to songwriting, filming and constant,
open interaction with everyone their music touches.
The chemistry between the members of Walk Off The Earth is undeniable. Marshall, Sarah and Gianni’s individual vocal
stylings mesh seamlessly with Taylor’s haunting harmonies and keys all the while soaring over epic melodic
arrangements held together by Joel Cassady’s driving and prolific percussion work. 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.
Opening Acts include:
Scars on 45, Kopecky, and The Wind + The Wave
“We are pleased to able to touch so many people and contribute to the needs of our local community,” remarked Alpha

in the Rose Festival RoZone. KINK’s presentation of its New Music Discovery Showcase is a major attraction of the 2015
Portland Rose Festival celebration, highlighting the Rose Festival’s commitment to quality live music on the waterfront,”

inception in 1968. We continue that tradition with our KINK on the Waterfront series. In the past few years we’ve
presented Music Discovery artists Alabama Shakes, Imagine Dragons, Fitz & The Tantrums, Capital Cities and others. We
are proud to bring another concert of Music Discovery to Portland.”
