Maris Pihlap EE

Singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Maris Pihlap describes herself as a jazz geek among folk musicians, a raver in a city of jazz hotspots, and an old fiddler accidentally lost in Tomorrowland. This honest and witty peek into her soul hints at the everlasting struggle to find a place in the world of music. Instead of trying to explore an already existing place, Maris found the courage to take all the sounds she had absorbed and create something new, not limiting herself to genres or moods. Her creation starts with words and everything else is placed in the service of thought.

On her debut LP, What Have You Become? (2021) Maris untangled the emotions of becoming a woman and the discomforts of change. The follow-up “The Search for Life Within”, released this spring, continued the journey towards peace within oneself with the support of violin, vocals, organic electronics and the occasional “imperfections” of the recordings.
