Helge's music is unique, exciting, fresh and combines old-school influences with a contemporary sound. Helge creates an experience for the listener with his magical voice and story.
Until april 2017, Helge never wrote a solo record. When he did write his first album 'The Days Of Young Petty Davis', he created a tribute to his childhood where he grew up with the music by Neil Young, Tom Petty and Miles Davis. After his first release, Helge urged for more. This led to his 2018 release of the EP 'Once The Sun'. The EP consisted of songs he wrote for plays and movies, but were too beautiful to leave on the shelves. He developed the songs to a unique and exciting sound together with Dave Menkenhorst.
He toured around the world with the bands Storybox and Miss Molly & Me and he won a Gouden Kalf for the best film music for the motion picture Kauwboy. He composed for theatergroups de Toneelmakerij and Toneelgroep Oostpool and wrote countless songs for diverse artists like Paul de Munnik and Ricky Koole.
The new film DORIS will appear in cinemas on September the 20th with Tjitske Reidinga playing the lead. Helge composed the score and wrote, composed and sung eight songs that are woven into the movie. For the next season in 2019, he will compose the music for the Casablanca play and release his next solo project. He travelled together with musician Dave Menkehorst to Iceland to find inspiration for his new musical endeavor. The result can be heared during the tour that will be stopping by 30 Dutch theaters.
