Sam Duckworth is an English musician formerly known as @Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, now performing as Recreations.

Get Cape was signed to Atlantic Records in March 2006, after playing many gigs, both with punk rock band Silverskin and as Get Cape. As Get Cape, Duckworth 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.

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 under the 'Get Cape' moniker was held at The Forum, Kentish Town on 12 September 2014. He released his first EP (Digital Ghettos) as Recreations earlier this year and has just released his first LP (Baby Boomers 2) through Xtra Mile Recordings. 

More info about the ICMP's Songwriters' Circle:
Lifting the veil on songwriters today, this writers round is a truly unique experience.

Our Songwriters' Circle is London's fastest growing Songwriting event, where writers reveal how and why their lyrics came to be. Taking place in an intimate setting, you'll get an exclusive listen to hit songs stripped back and sung by the writers themselves, as well as new material from the most talented up-and-coming songwriters in the UK. 

Hosted by our tutors (which include a Mercury Music Prize Nominee and No 1 UK writers and artists), and featuring an exciting line-up of successful alumni, along with ICMP student artists and our fantastic line up of special guests... you never know who you'll meet! 

Open to all, the Songwriters' Circle attracts musicians, music lovers and industry alike. This is a unique blend of people coming together for one evening along with stunning songs and the stories around them, and an experience you won't forget.
