P!lot is an indie rock project with a rotating crew. On deck is Erel Pilo, a singer, songwriter and musician, known for her ethereal voice and playful melodies. She has performed across the US as well as in Paris and Tel Aviv. Tired of playing solo shows, she started recruiting local musicians in each city she visited, hence forming P!lot, an ever-evolving band with a consistent sound. The music exists in the indie realm, reminiscent of songstresses like Regina Spektor, Norah Jones and PJ Harvey. The inspiration for the songs comes in many forms, including literature, fashion, science, relationships and life’s glorious mundanities.

“Erel Pilo is one of the most charming Brooklyn musicians on the block. Her sweet, indie sounds are ethereal, upbeat, and poppy with a hint of folk.” ”

— Feminist Wednesday December 4, 2013

Reminiscent of Kathryn Williams or Norah Jones, but with a unique delicacy and poignant charm, 'Balloon' is a simply dreamy slice of twinkling folk-pop. ”

Gig Slutz October 6, 2014

“ Remember the twee, romantic charms of Chairlift? Erel Pilo has that sort of doe-eyed guy/girl romantic pop song going on, but with an acoustic guitar instead of a synthesizer. ”
