RIP Mike Taylor
With a very heavy heart I share the news with you that Mike Taylor (aka - beard guy) of the band Walk off the Earth has passed away. Mike Taylor was the talented keyboardist and backing vocalist of the incredible unique Canadian indie pop band Walk off the Earth. The band is known for some incredible covers that went viral on their YouTube channel and also their original music such as their most recent single "Fifth Avenue”. The band was scheduled to perform on New Year's Eve in Niagara Falls for CBC.
The band posted:
I got the chance to photograph Walk off the Earth and had a brief communication with Mike through Instagram. He really liked the photographs I took of him and the band and was excited to see the pictures. I was able to send him the post via e-mail at his request. He was nice and very kind to me and I can only imagine how amazing he was to the people close to him.
I want to send my condolences to his family, kids, friends, band mates and to all of his fans from around the world. He will be missed. RIP Mike Taylor.
