Born and raised in harbour town Hamburg Germany with poetry and music in heart & blood, singer songwriter Britta Wolfert listened and sang with the music of Ella and Astrudo, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez on the radio in her parent's kitchen on Sunday mornings.
In her teens, she lingered in folk and jazz clubs, listening to live music all over harbour town Hamburg.
Passionate about her own musical calling, she started performing in iconic harbour folk clubs in Hamburg ~ solo, duo and with band.
After moving to Canada, it was not until 2013 that her first, long awaited, award winning album MOONSTONE was released.
At the 2015 NOMFA Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards in Sudbury on May 30th,
Producer Rusty McCarthy accepted the 'Best Engineer Award' for his work on Moonstone.
In December 2018, after 3 years of hard work and lengthy unintended interruptions, Britta Wolfert's Jazz album Solitüde has now been accomplished and released. Another masterpiece by producer Rusty McCarthy. Treat yourself to a truly beautiful listening experience and purchase the CD hard copy, lyrics sheet and artwork today.

Some lovely Moonstone testimonials...thank you:
"...but I must tell you how much I enjoy your music-voice of an angel. Listening to you in church a few weeks ago-what a treat. Britta add me to your email list for sure." G.W. November 2016
'Thanks for your mails, letting me know what's happening (referring to the monthly newsletter). You were wonderful at 'Northern Vibes Music Festival', I really enjoyed your concert!' B.L. October 2016
"I hope you remember singing at our wedding August 2014. As our 2nd anniversary approaches your name often comes up for the wonderful performance you put on that day. We will always remember you fondly.
This summer I have had the opportunity to listen often to your CD titled "Moonstone". I just wanted to tell you how much I love it, you have an incredible repertoire of styles on it, all of them great!
I will be in SSM early October this year and if you have any performances scheduled there, I would make a point to come listen, and if you have more Moonstone CD's I would like to buy one for my sister.
Hope to see you in the Soo," August 2016
"We are really enjoying her CD – favorite so far is No. 5. Leonarde!! What a tune!! I have been listening to it over and over on my way to work." J.S. & A.H.
"Still enjoying Moonstone Album... Hope your new year 2016 goes very well... viele danke und auf weidersehen,Britta!" ~ E.G.
"Dear Britta: I was on a fairly long car trip today, and my joy was that Moonstone was my companion. I am not a good audient most of the time, but in the car I am at my very best. So, what do I think? You love the spirit of Achigan. You have folk roots and jazz wings. Your compassion allows you to draw detailed and poignant portraits. I have to smile at Cat Tango: that cat! those kids! and a tent a 40 below? No way! Hey Mabel was very moving. Tequila and Guitars was such a richly mysterious song I had it on repeat a few times. In Heute I wondered if the quality of your voice changed ever so slightly? The lost dream of In the End is a universal experience, no? and I can certainly appreciate the lyric “love is lacking in society. We've gone a little bit astray…” The lyric and musical textures were appealing in every song, the singing beautiful and the arrangements excellent. Thank you!"
"Vielen Dank für diese schöne CD. Läuft bei uns im Moment dauerhaft.
Liebe Grüße aus Hamburg Von den Kelbgs und schöne Ostern!"
~ Kelbg Restaurant Hamburg Volksdorf

love yr voice Britta ~ you must be very pleased" R. .
"I have finally gotten around to telling you how much I love your cd. The choice of songs stretches from heartbreak to raw sensuality. I love the maturity in your melodies. With a bit of German thrown in for fun. The production is flawless. Holy Rusty!!!! Your voice floats out front like velvet. And where did you find all of those incredible musicians. Nice to hear Jeff's banjo too. I put the cd on and have to replay it because I think I missed something. Then I play it again. Wonderful, just wonderful." M.H.
"I particularly liked the song that you wrote for him long ago - what's the title of it again?
And Harvey Taylor was right about your voice being "hallelujah" - I find it angelic, the voice of a very young angel..." C.Z.
