Indigenous Music Awards 2019 Best Blues CD for "When I Rise"

Cowboys & Indians january 2021

"There's so much we didn't know about phenomenal American blues musician...Cary Morin. Like the fact that the Colorado-based guitar virtuoso tours America with a 10-pound Shih Tzu named Zeus.  If that doesn't immediately endear Morin to you, his new record, Dockside Saints, surely will...  -Cowboys & Indians, January 2021  Read more here...

 

NPR MUSIC'S BEST LIVE SESSIONS OF 2020

It was a tough year for live music, but NPR's Member stations across the country managed to produce some great radio sessions before and during the pandemic. Here are the best of the bunch, featuring studio performances, home recordings and socially-distanced outdoor sets. Cary Morin is one of Colorado's great treasures and has been described as one of the best pickers on the scene today. His music is characterized as Native Americana, with healthy doses of blues, bluegrass, jazz, reggae and folk... His just-released album Dockside Saints will show the rest of the country what Colorado already knows. —Benji McPhail, NPR Music  Read more here...

DEEP ROOTS MAGAZINE DECEMBER 2020

"Exception To The Rule"

"Anyone who’s been paying attention to Cary Morin’s art for the past few years should have seen Dockside Saints coming...In the past three years since Cradle, he has not only refined his songwriting further and demonstrated how even the most gifted of instrumentalists always find room for deeper, more meaningful expressiveness, but he’s also literally found his voice. That is to say, with every album he’s become a more nuanced vocalist while plumbing for deeper levels of feeling. Amazing as it may sound, this most personal and most self-aware of songwriters has continued to strip away any constraints or reservations he may have had about cutting too close to the bone for comfort in articulating everything from frank admissions of personal shortcomings to gratitude for the love blessing his life to an ever-heightened sense of spiritual guidance leading him to the next outpost on his artistic journey. On Dockside Saints, all the elements of this journey congeal, magnificently and powerfully, in service to a fully realized work of art. He’s on his own plane now...What makes them all so much more affecting is the raw, visceral vocalizing, so profoundly personal, especially when coupled to his and his band’s intensely committed support—every note, sung and played, betrays there being something at stake here. When he sings, we’re hearing something here we haven’t heard to this degree before. He’s taken the phrase “kicking it up a notch” to absurd heights..." -David McGee, Deep Roots Magazine  Read more here...

BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2020

Singer-songwriter/guitarist Cary Morin mixes things up on his latest album, Dockside Saints,... The release, Morin's sixth, leans heavily on Cajun/Creole influences of the New Orleans region, combined with his own Native American heritage... Throughout there's plenty of talent, lots of variety... -Bill Wasserzieher, Blues Music Magazine, October 2020  Read more here...

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...
