Thus was born an eclectic choice of material, rooting in soul, jazz, hip-hop, but ever-changing in form and nature.

ELLIP is the author of her own lyrics and melodies alongside Mikk Siemer (Nzea) as the producer. In live performances the fabulous band adds their extra flair. The recording of new material is starting this autumn.
Her Debut Album “FOUR WORDS”
In May 2020 Singer-songwriter Pille-Riin Karro a.k.a ELLIP released her debut album titled Four Words. Speaking to Indieheads about her relationship with music, ELLIP said,
Music is something that causes me the largest amount of joy and makes me experience sadness I have never before. It makes me test my own limits, experiment and rise to places I never thought possible personally.
Music and the concept of a musician are so broad that it gives so many outs for creativity, which I enjoy,
ELLIP’s first mini-album is not confined by one specific category or genre. She explains the music in her album in her own words.
My music is a mixture of everything that inspired me during the writing process. Genres like drum & bass, jazz and hip hop are an influence which are woven together by a common denominator ‘electronic music’. A second commonality for all of the songs is the environment it was produced in – between the fields and nature of South-Estonia, the peace of the countryside, no interruptive factors, just pure indulgence in music and creativity. The album is a product of unrevealed emotions, love lessons, memories and life lessons.
The singer did many covers in her music career but was worried about making her own music.
She states how she overcame this problem,
I can confidently say that I have reached the understanding that there is no point in creating comparisons between eachother’s art – we are all positively different in our own way,” says ELLIP. A great push for releasing her own music was her studies in Ormskirk, United Kingdom. “I was an exchange student and participated in courses like multimedia, music production, songwriting. That experience gave me the confidence that was until then missing and the strength to open myself up to critisism and also positive feedback. The need to express myself musically surpassed the fear of putting it out for the world to judge.
