Walk off the Earth is a three-piece indie rock band that has, among its many peers, stood out with its mastery of harmonies as well as its low-budget music videos. Hailing from Ontario, the band skipped the standard prerequisites set out by the music industry and built a fan base without management, agents or a record label. The band instead took to Youtube to expose its covers and original material to a world-wide audience, demonstrating a talent-driven DIY mentality and earning the respect of artists and fans alike. Walk off the Earth's cover of Gotye's hit "Somebody That I Used To Know," featuring five people playing a single guitar, was uploaded to Youtube in 2012 and received over a hundred million views within five months. A month after the video was released, Walk off the Earth signed a contract with Columbia Records and continues to release new music.
