Britt Margit’s best friends are a journal and a guitar but for her that’s normal.
The 24-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, the Colorado native’s 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 internal conflict led to Britt leaving the label prior to any release.
During her time as a signed artist, Britt relocated to Denver to pursue a music business degree 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 now working in Marketing & Social Media for Second Star to the Right Books, Britt is consistently seeking out new opportunities to get involved in the Denver Music Scene and music industry at large, including heading up the new Denver/Boulder chapter of WomenCrush Music. In addition to advocating for songwriters and women in music, she continues to write and perform.
Britt’s sound blends folk and classic rock with a bit of a poppy flavor that is soothing to the soul.
