Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
War Of The Worlds
Otherwise known as 20 year old Sam Duckworth, Get Cape. got his break at Manchester's In The City showcase, before impressing at SXSW in Texas. He tours in January to promote the debut album he co-produced, "The Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager".
Already a firmly established favourite of the student population, "War Of The Worlds" reveals Get Cape. to be a brilliantly honest songwriter who marries aching lyrics to beautiful acoustic melodies. The arrangement plays to emphasise a voice that is perhaps not the best, but is commanding due to the genuine emotion expressed and it culminates to display a young man with immense talent and potential. James Blunt might be the reigning king (tragically) of acoustic music, but this would be a worthy future for the genre.
