Lynette Rice, Entertainment Weekly, interviewed Walk Off the Earth band founder Ryan Marshall and member Sarah Blackwood Monday on her Outlander Live! Show on EW Radio. They revealed how their cover of Dylan’s song got on Sunday’s Outlander episode.
It was a cover of a Bob Dylan song that Walk Off the Earth did five years ago. They performed it once, just for kicks. In fact, they pretty much forgot they ever sang it — until someone from Outlander contacted them in July about using it for an episode this season.
In an interview on Outlander Live! Monday on EW Radio, band founder Ryan Marshall and member Sarah Blackwood talked about the initial email from the producers, and what prompted them to record Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” in the first place.
“We got an email in about July. Anytime we get a call from anybody wanting to use our music is super exciting,” recalls Marshall of his five-member band that’s based in Burlington, Ontario. “The fact they wanted to use an old Bob Dylan song … it wasn’t one of our songs, it was a cover that Sarah and I just kind of threw together on the floor.
