Britt Margit’s best friends are a journal and a guitar but for her that’s normal.
The 27-year-old from Aspen, Colorado started singing in choirs when she was just five years old, wrote her first song at eleven, and adopted the guitar in high school. Over years of honing her craft, her songs have come to combine her earnest songwriting with influences ranging from The Civil Wars and Jill Andrews to Florence + The Machine and Fleetwood Mac.
Leaving Aspen for the Front Range in 2012, Britt studied vocal performance at the University of Colorado Boulder for two years, meeting and signing to Birdland Records in May 2014. Though almost two years of late nights were spent recording a debut album, continued conflict led to Britt leaving the label prior to any release (the songs were eventually released between 2017 and 2019 as Britt Hopkins).
In 2015, Britt relocated to Denver to pursue a Bachelor’s in Music Business at the University of Colorado Denver, graduating Summa Cum Laude in December 2017. While there, she acted as CU Denver Live‘s marketing coordinator, leading cultural event planning and marketing initiatives.
A lifelong book worm, Britt now works in publishing in New York. Though fully entrenched in the world of books, she still seeks out new opportunities to get involved in the music scene and advocate for other women in music, having led the Denver/Boulder expansion of #WomenCrush Music in its first year.
Britt’s sound blends folk and classic rock with a bit of a poppy flavor that is soothing to the soul.

…a complex woman with a voice that lets you know she’s stronger and smarter than the heartache she singing about.
