Living Blues Magazine September 2020
"...Morin's compositions are finely crafted and well suited to the Southwest Louisiana treatment... Essentially, what Morin and Daigle have put together is a solid roots rock album that is nicely seasoned with Cajun and Zydeco spice... Cary Morin flashes his versatility on Dockside Saints; it will be interesting to see where the road takes him next time." -Robert Cataliotti, Living Blues Magazine, September 2020 Read more here...
No Depression August 2020
NO DEPRESSION – Cary Morin’s Textured Vocals Anchor Zydeco Romp on ‘Dockside Saints’ – “…the thing about Morin is his voice, textured and steady, is the glue holding the songs together. You’re not drawn to the vocals because they dominate the tracks ― it’s the opposite. The vocals work because they mesh with every style within every song, an auditory illusion where two people hear different things when listening to the same sound. Zydeco fans might hear a Louisiana growl in his singing. Blues fans will hear more of a smoke. And rock fans might think Morin comes from their world. Morin’s voice fits into so many styles that the songs make perfect sense, even when he and his band are juggling musical genres…” -Steven Ovadia, August 5th, 2020 https://www.nodepression.com/album-reviews/cary-morins-textured-vocals-anchor-zydeco-romp-on-dockside-saints
The Alternate Root August 2020
THE ALTERNATE ROOT – Cary Morin Dockside Saints - Virtuoso Blues guitarist Cary Morin returns for his sixth album, Dockside Saints. Recorded at the fabled New Orleans Dockside Studios, this album drips with spicy, Cajun flavors. Still present are Morin’s expressive Piedmont Blues guitar picking and his Greg Allman meets John Hiatt vocals. But the musical spices of New Orleans infuse every note with an Emeril Lagasse “Bam!” burst of flavor… At times earnest and insightful, and at times bouncy and buoyant, Dockside Saints is a spicy tribute to the birthplace of the Blues.” -Brian Rock reviewed, August 7th, 2020 http://www.thealternateroot.com/reviewarchives/cary-morin-dockside-saints
Making A Scene August 2020
MAKING A SCENE – “…Cary Morin releases the best album of his career at a time when promoting new music will take a higher power. There is something special at play here, perhaps something ancestral was captured, some ancient Native culture of the South. The Crow Akbaatatdia, and the Cajun and Creole voodoo traiteurs, (spiritual healers), cannot help but be pleased with the fusing of Cary Morin’s award winning and dynamic finger-style guitar, his Native Americana songwriting and melodies, and pure Louisiana soul…” -Viola Krouse, August 7th, 2020 https://www.makingascene.org/cary-morin-dockside-saints/
