Biography

Vaiko Eplik (b. 1981) is an Estonian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist renowned for his works in the domains of pop-rock as well as experimental rock.

A diverse variety of influences includes artists and composers from Beach Boys to Stevie Wonder and J.S. Bach to Frank Zappa.

Vaiko became well known at quite a young age in the mid-late-90s when living a rock ‘n roll dream in a brit-pop laden outfit called Claire’s Birthday. In 2003 the latter was renamed as Ruffus, which - after a nation-wide televote and popular request - attended and provided a quality-check to the Eurovision song contest with Eighties Coming Back.

After disbanding Ruffus, having fun with fellow-musicians under the names Koer and Vaiko Eplik ja Eliit and turning down an offer from Universal Music to become their songwriter, Vaiko has steadily focused his efforts on solo stuff. He’s recording at his parents’ house and releasing under his own label, Mortimer Snerd.
