Sam grew up in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Get Cape was signed to Atlantic Records in March 2006, after playing many gigs, both with punk rock band Silverskin and as Get Cape.
Get Cape has collaborated with Billy Bragg, Nitin Sawhney, Shlomo, Killa Kela, Baba Maal, Flea, Kate Nash, and many others with his participation in many events for Africa Express.
Sam co-organised The Demolition Ball - the last night at the London Astoria venue before it was knocked down in January 2009. Get Cape also headlined the Astoria for his 21st birthday party. After 10 years, Sam Duckworth decided to end Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, to continue to make music under his own name. The last ever show was held at The Forum Kentish Town on 12 Sept 2014.
This year he's coming to Village Green, this time with The Brackets!
