The Marie Goudy Quintet is a fresh, dynamic jazz ensemble featuring all original songs by the bandleader/trumpet player. The material, which could be described as cool jazz-pop, is sung by quickly rising star vocalist Jocelyn Barth. The ensemble also features JUNO-award-winning pianist Adrean Farrugia, as well as the incredible bassist Nick Arseneau and drummer Andrew Scott.
Born in 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, and many others.
She graduated from the University of Toronto's Masters in Jazz Performance program in 2017. She has made her mark on the Toronto music scene playing jazz, funk, mariachi, folk and Latin music, and was a featured soloist in the 2018 SOCAN Awards. Marie has played on three JUNOnominated albums with folk-funk singer/songwriter Alysha Brilla and toured to France, Chile, Yellowknife, and Singapore with that group.
"Goudy’s musical world is gentle and transcendent but she is fiery in her expression as a composer and as a trumpet player" - The Whole Note
"There aren’t many singers that blow you away halfway through the first verse of a song. Jocelyn is THAT singer." - Jaymz Beemariegoudy.com
