Genevieve “Gigi” Marentette is a fixture in the Toronto music community. She was born in Leamington Ontario, known affectionately as tomato town. Her father is a farmer and her mother is a musician and social activist. As a child, Genevieve bounced around the north and south of Ontario - living communally and creatively. That upbringing helped nurture her free-spirited soul - full of saudade - and also, her love of community - full of duende.

Genevieve spent formative teen years in Detroit, where her family roots go back 265 years. She credits her mom @lindagirard and Detroit's rich musical history for her unique artistry. After completing a college jazz diploma in Toronto, she traveled and performed extensively in Asia and Europe. Genevieve, or Gigi as her peeps call her, calls Toronto her home. Gigi has worked with Marc Houle, Theo Parrish, Recloose, David Clayton-Thomas, Jane Siberry and others. Check out her playlist!
