Toronto trumpet player/vocalist MARIE GOUDY started her professional career when she was just 16 years old. By the age of 19, she had already played with some of the world’s most notable musicians including Benny Golson, Cleo Laine, and Maria Schneider, and has since performed with Michael Buble, Donny McCaslin, and the list goes on.
She graduated from the University of Toronto’s Masters in Jazz Performance program in 2017, and has already made her mark on the Toronto music scene playing jazz, funk, mariachi, folk, and Latin music. She has played on three JUNO-nominated albums with folk-funk singer/songwriter Alysha Brilla and toured to France, Chile, Yellowknife, and Singapore with that group. She was a featured soloist in the 2018 SOCAN Awards.
Marie currently leads the Marie Goudy 12tet, a large jazz ensemble that is quickly rising through the Toronto jazz ranks. This group’s first album, “The Bitter Suite”, featuring vocalist Jocelyn Barth and produced by John MacLeod, was released in October of 2018. It reached #3 on the national jazz charts and consistently received glowing reviews, and appeared on several “Top 10 Albums of 2018” lists.
