A native of Toronto, trumpet player/vocalist Marie Goudy started her professional career at the age of sixteen. By the age of nineteen, she had already played with many notable musicians including Benny Golson, Cleo Laine and Maria Schneider. Since then she has performed with Michael Buble, Donny McCaslin, Guillermo del Toro, and many others.
She graduated from the University of Toronto's Jazz Performance program with Honours in 2012, and graduated from the University of Toronto's Masters in Jazz Performance program in 2017. She has since made her mark on the Toronto music scene playing jazz, funk, mariachi, folk and Latin music. She has toured across the United States and Mexico with Latin-funk band Pilaseca, and across Canada with rock group Kelly and the Kellygirls.
Marie has played on two JUNO-nominated albums with folk-funk singer/songwriter Alysha Brilla and toured to France, Chile, Yellowknife, and Singapore with that group. She currently leads the Marie Goudy 12tet, a large jazz ensemble that is quickly rising through the Toronto jazz ranks.
