Will Goble

Hailing from Durham, NC and beginning his musical career in communities rich with mentorship, Will Goble is steadily carving out a unique space for himself as a bassist, composer, bandleader, and educator.

Will became interested in Jazz and related art forms after effectively growing up within the creative music scene that still thrives around the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area in North Carolina. Upon departing Durham for Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL in the early 2000s, Will quickly flourished under the tutelage of bassist Rodney Jordan and famed pianist Marcus Roberts. His relationship with Roberts extended onto the bandstand as Marcus invited Will to perform with his trio on a number of performances through the years. Through Roberts, Will met drummer and vibraphonist Jason Marsalis, eventually joining Jason’s quartet in 2008. He can be heard on three of Jason’s most recent studio releases, Music Update (2009), In a World of Mallets, (2013), and The 21st Century Trad Band (2014).
