Maris Pihlap

Maris Pihlap is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Tallinn, Estonia. Her journey started out as a promising folk fiddler, diving deep into Estonian tradition, but an injury put that dream on hold and led her to an alternative path instead. She taught herself to produce, started writing original songs and refining her skills by remixing other artists' music. Her debut-EP What Have You Become? released by TIKS rekords (2021) gained immediate attention both locally and internationally, paving the way for a full-length album set to be released in 2022.

In her fantasy world, genres or expectations don't exist. Maris takes the listener on a journey where traditional music and jazz are effortlessly intertwined in electronic pop production. Some of the most characteristic features of her music are her dark, yet airy vocals, and the bold minimalistic use of the violin.
