Joel Cassady (Walk Off The Earth)
Joel is the drummer in the inimitable Canadian band, Walk Off The Earth. WOTE is a Canadian indie band formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario.
The band´s first success came from covering the songs of The Gregory Brothers. The video of their cover of Gotye´s "Somebody That I Used to Know" featuring The Creepshow´s Sarah Blackwood became rapidly popular on YouTube in early 2012, gathering over 50 million views in a single month and received positive responses from both Gotye and his co-singer on the song Kimbra. In the video, the five musicians play a single guitar. They claimed they all used the same guitar because they only had one guitar at the time. The band has also covered "Someone Like You" by Adele, "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO, and dozens of other tracks.
On February 7th 2012, the music industry publication Crazed Hits reported that the band had signed a recording contract with Columbia.
