Canadian Musician Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor Passes Away

Posted by Greg on Dec 31, 2018 in Music |


A sad day in the music world. Keyboard player and multi-instrumentalist Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor of the award-winning Canadian band Walk Off The Earth has passed away from natural causes on Sunday, December 30th.

“Mike had a love for life that was unmatched and a willingness to give that went beyond ordinary means,” the band says. “Our deepest sympathies are with his two children, whom he adored more than anything else in the world.”

A founding member of the Juno Award-winning band, Taylor gained attention alongside his bandmates when their interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” went viral on YouTube in 2012. Since then, they have released a bevy of original songs, sold out venues across the globe and collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world. Let’s keep Mike’s memory alive and well today and tomorrow by playing lots of Walk Off The Earth.

Below is a video of their fantastic version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
