Cary's latest CD, "Cradle To The Grave," is here! Get It Now!
Cary has been described as acoustic Native Americana Fingerstyle Blues; with strong qualities of jam, reggae, jazz, blues, bluegrass and dance. Tim Duffy, president of Music maker Relief Foundation, describes Morin as a “brilliant guitarist, heartfelt songwriter and soulful singer whose music gives us pause to reflect on life’s great rewards.”
Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of American and beyond like no other, from the rocking, electrified world groove of The Atoll, to the pared-down acoustic blues of Sing It Louder and Streamline, which showcases Morin’s deft fingerstyle guitar.
Cary;s 2017 release, Cradle to the Grave, won The 2017 Indigenous Music Award for Best Blues CD. He currently performs as a solo artist, and with Young Ancients.
"A man and a guitar, a lot of soul, and an understanding of the history of soulful men with guitars in American music can sometimes achieve this kind of timelessness in their work - if they have the chops. Cary Morin has the chops and is one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today. There are performances on "Streamline" that would stand out, variously, among the old-school delta blues pliers, the Greenwich Village folk crowd at the end of the 1950s, the back-to-nature bards of the late '60s, or today's thriving singer/songwriter scene. Morin references all these styles: they're in his vocabulary, but he's no dilettante. His engaging sound is his alone..."
-Richard Higgs Co-Host of Folk Salad 89.5 Public Radio Tulsa
Here's what folks are saying about Cary's Music:
"...A superb fingerstyle guitarist, Morin is a troubadour of the first order...The guitar playing on this album is elegant, and simple in it's beauty. And while what he is doing might be complex, he seems to toss it off effortlessly, as if anyone could play this well..." - Joe McSpadden, No Depression
"He’s a fantastic fingerstyle guitarist— nimble, yet very soulful. Even when he does show off his skills, as in the ragtime-like blues “Laid Back,” he does so without overplaying. The sentiment expressed in the song always reigns...A delight from start to finish, keeps the blues alive." -Tom Clarke, Tahoe OnStage, February 2017
"...but Cary Morin's style is uniquely Real Deal. From start to finish Cradle To The Grave is a masterpiece. Make room in that trophy case...this is an album deserving of one or more Blues Music Awards. I recommend it highly. One of the things that I found perhaps most impressive is the humility that shines through his music. It also amazes me that this is one man, alone with his guitar. I was held spellbound from start to finish." - Bill Wilson
"Here's a cat you won't know what to do with other than sit back and enjoy. A Native American finger picking guitarist originally from Montana, he seems to have a lot more in common with Mississippi John Hurt than Redbone. Having proven himself as being able to fill up a stage whether he's by himself or with a cast of thousands, he's earned his spot as Colorado's national treasure of the blues." -Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"...Cary Morin has tapped directly into the roots of country blues. With his impeccable finger picking and occasional steel guitar playing and crusty, expressive vocals and song writing, Morin has developed a style that stands apart as true “Native Americana.” Morin’s deft blues picking and raw singing are reminiscent of Corey Harris’s early recordings. - Bill Wilcox, Twangville
"Morin finger picks with a controlled sort of reckless abandon, making the frets do his bidding as he navigates up and down the neck of the guitar. Quite impressive!... I think fans of acoustic blues will love this. Morin is an adept guitar player and delivers vocals beautifully..."
-Steve Jones, Crossroads Blues Society for Blues Blast Magazine
"Heralded as the ‘Dylan of Durango’, Cary Morin turns his attention even further towards the Delta as he explores the annals of American roots music on Tiny Town." -Joe Mack, Currentland
"Rich and resonant, Streamline is a synthesis of traditional folk, blues, bluegrass and Americana styles that perfectly meshes into Cary Morin's own brand of singer-songwriter eclecticism...Cary Morin is a virtuosic guitarist of the highest order..." -Michael Canter, Jivewired
"Cary Morin is a true, 100% bonafide talent. Not sure if I'm more blown away by his fingerpicking talent or his incredibly soulful voice. Both of them together make for one of the coolest things I saw on Beale this past weekend (twice!). Bought his CD and can't wait to unpack and put it on! Thanks for the great music Cary." -Kate Moss
"Cary did more than compete at the IBC, he taught some folks about the depth of his inspiration. I thought he stood alone with the best songs on Beale." -John Catt, Blue Star Connection
