Earlier this year Douglas Firs, aka Gertjan Van Hellemont, made his debut on the radio with his beautiful single ‘Shimmer & Glow’. On Oct 8th his self-titled debut album will be released on the brand new record label Gentle Recordings (Universal Music). Almost inconspicuous but nevertheless very present Gertjan Van Hellemont has been a part of the Flemish music industry for years, such as being the sidekick of frontman Bram Vanparys from The Bony King Of Nowhere. Under the name of DOUGLAS FIRS Gertjan gathered a group of like-minded people to make very personal and sheer music with obvious influences from Neil Young, Gram Parsons and Lowell George.
