Cary Morin & Ghost Dog Bio

Colorado musicians Cary Morin (guitar, vocals), Celeste Di Iorio (harmony vocals, rhythm guitar), Luke Hunter (bass ), Josh Vogeler (drums), and Koda Gray (drums, percussion) unite to form a high-energy roots rock band, intent on getting folks up and out of their seats!

Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as roots-infused Native Americana with hints of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock. He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.


Celeste Di Iorio, having been involved in dance, theater, and music for many years, has worked both in bands and as a soloist.  Her inspired vocals help shape the signature sound of Ghost Dog.



Luke Hunter, a Colorado native, has been playing bass for over fifteen years.  He has been the tour manager for local band, Write Minded, for the past two years and has worked in music production for fifteen-plus years. 


Josh Vogeler was formally trained as a percussionist in school bands while growing up in St. Louis.  Frequent trips to New Orleans played a big role in the enrichment of his rhythmic sensibility.  Home-based in Colorado since 2002, Josh has not only made a name for himself as a drummer, but also as a guitar-playing singer-songwriter.  He’s been drumming with House With a Yard since 2017 and recently joined Ghost Dog in 2023.  

Koda Gray began learning the Drums at the age of 13 and through music lessons was able to go deep into the world of Drums/Percussion. Koda believes in the unique power all musicians hold to light up a room and bring people together, to connect with the feeling of a moment and create a tangible expression, and to share the love of being alive with everyone around you and empower us all to grow together.
