“You can’t think about what other people think because then you’re getting in to the level of self analysis where you’re like ‘Why do people like me?’ and I think that it’s not good to be that fundamentally insecure in the creative process.”
Over the last 15 years Sam Duckworth has been making music under his own name, as Recreations and as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., touching on a multitude of genres while retaining a clear common thread. Last year he announced the return of the Gat Cape name having retired it under extraordinary circumstances a few short years before.
We got together backstage ahead of his Birmingham headline show to talk through his back catalogue.
His new record Young Adult is out now on Xtra Mile.
