Live in your Living; Helge
Friday 17th of November 2017
The Dutch singer songwriter Helge, or Helge Slikker, as his full Dutch name goes, sings from the heart and caresses you with his exciting and velvety voice. His performances, with or without band, are sincere and layered and at the same time the songs are very catchy and accessible. Helge has been active in the music industry for a while now and has been key member of bands like Storybox, Happy Camper and more recent the successful duo Miss Molly & Me. With these bands he has supported artists like Calexico, Ray LaMontagne and Jon Auer.
April this year Helge released his first solo album titled The Days Of Young Petty Davis. Right at the first track Helge takes you on a journey that will take you along a collection of high quality songs and stories. The album is inspired and influenced by Neil Young, Tom Petty and also Miles Davis. Hence the title of the album. The record has a characteristic and mature pop feel to it but even gets cinematic sometimes. That has a lot to do with him being a film composer as well. He has worked on several international films and won a ‘Gouden Kalf’ (The biggest Dutch film award) in the category 'best music' for the film Kauwboy. Which became that year’s Dutch entry for the Oscars.
