‘Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’ isn’t your standard solo musician. The nineteen year-old singer-songwriter avoids tweaking a familiar style or adding another sub genre to an already saturated market, instead aims for something special indeed. Big Cheese magazine declared the magic of the first demos to lie ‘not just in the socially aware lyrics or the laid back acoustic-meets-electronica feel, but the fact it’s meshed together in such an original and refreshing way.’
The beauty of Get Cape has already gathered attention from BBC Radio One’s Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq, whom stumbled with the musician at the open mic stage at In The City 2005, won over the Myspace community by voting for him as a ‘local hero’ on the UK dates of the Taste Of Chaos Tour (Featuring Funeral For A Friend, The Used etc) and received XFM playlist status. His ingenious mix of finger style guitar (an unusual rarity in modern, acoustic music) powerful, soaring vocals and electronic drum and bass beats can is the perfect mix of chaos and beauty. With the recent rise in the market towards acoustic music, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly has the potential to do something very different via a market and medium that seems to have reached it’s Blunt limits.
From a generation rife with lethargy, Get Cape… loves to tour, guitar and mac in hand. With an attitude far beyond his peers, he flies around cities way-laden with equipment, with a superhero will to get to any show come rain or shine.
