No Depression January 2024

"…While Morin’s signature guitar playing shows up in most songs throughout the record, it’s nowhere more apparent than on “Bullhead Lodge” and his stunning arrangement of the traditional bluegrass tune “Whiskey Before Breakfast.” - Avery Gregurich, No Depression, January 2024

Americana, Roots, Country, & Bluegrass Music January 2024

“…Cary Morin offers an adroit example of instrumental artistry and integrity, stirred with equal measure.. The words and music transport the listener to the wide open spaces of the prairies and the captivating Montana landscape… Innocent Allies is yet another commendable album by the sublime Cary Morin…”  -Alan Cackett, Americana, Roots, Country, & Bluegrass Music, January 2024

“Grown Up Cinematic and Artistic Songs For Cinematic and Artistic Grown Ups” – Nick Barber, The Rocking Magpie, January 23rd, 2024

Americana Highways January 2024

“…[Innocent Allies] has a tailored grace, peaceful conjuring, a benevolence that runs through the musical notes of Cary’s fingerstyle picking & warm folky voice.” – John Apice, Americana Highways, January 25th, 2024

American Songwriter January 2024

"Cary Morin’s Innocent Allies will scratch the itch of anyone looking for some laid-back country music with art-inspired lyrics over expertly played guitar…Cary Morin’s latest album showcases his expert fingerstyle guitar playing and songwriting prowess…" – Clayton Edwards, American Songwriter, January 2024

Denver Westword January 2024

“…Morin has been lauded throughout his long career for masterful guitar playing and a diverse blend of influences (blues, folk, soul, bluegrass), crafting a sound that has often been called Native Americana. Innocent Allies illustrates a world of mysterious loners: ranchers and hunters, warriors and outlaws, some dealing with loss or late for waiting lovers, and some facing a noose. These colorful phantoms float through dead-on descriptions of wintry western landscapes (it's a terrific album for a snow day), dressed up by the sheer beauty of the tunes. Acoustic and pedal-steel guitar lines soar and swoon above perfectly balanced droplets of piano, all of it intertwined with Morin's smooth, sad vocals, which have just the right amount of gravel tossed in…” – John Flathman, Denver Westword, January 30th, 2024

Billings Gazette January 2024

“…Morin is an acclaimed singer-songwriter who’s particularly known for his virtuosic guitar playing...full of melodies and hooks that weave effortlessly.” -Jake Iverson, Billings Gazette, January 2024

Making A Scene January 2024

“…Morin has long cemented his reputation as an astute guitarist, but Innocent Allies clearly represents his crowning achievement as a songwriter. All his inestimable talents are poured into this ambitious project.” – Jim Hynes, Making a Scene, January 26th, 2024

Adventures In Americana December 2023

“Cinematic” is a good way to describe the entire album, a sprawling, ambitious collection of stories and meditations full of emotion and big-sky landscapes. They stand strong on their own but gather even more richness upon learning the backstory of each. (The Innocent Allies album title is also inspired by a Russell painting, which depicts three horses waiting atop a cliff while their riders hold up a stagecoach in the gulch below.)…"  -Carol Roth, Adventures In Americana read more here…
