March 2018. His album, Cradle to the Grave, won the 2018 Best Blues CD from the Independent Music Awards.

“Wow! This CD is a revelation. Any description I can give it I’m afraid wouldn’t be enough. Singer-songwriter-finger-style guitar player Cary Morin has conjured up many images in his pensive and sometimes mystical songs using just his warm voice and an acoustic six-string guitar. No outside help.”

~ Greg “Bluesdog” Szalony | BluesBlast Magazine, May 10, 2017

“If you haven’t heard Cary Morin, you need to… some of the finest acoustic guitar picking you’ll hear anywhere…A superb fingerstyle guitarist, Morin is a troubadour of the first order…”

~ Joe McSpadden | No Depression January 2017

“Drawing from the blues yet not defined by any given category. Colorado fingerstyle guitarist-singer Cary Morin is a storyteller of Crow heritage who operates at the same high artistic level as Greg Brown, Jorma Kaukonen and Chris Smither…”

~ Downbeat Magazine, March 2017

“While solo spontaneity on stage leads to such ephemeral moments, Morin has a solidified team off-stage that serves as his backbone — and they’re not going anywhere. From recording to promotion, it’s an organic, family affair.”

~ Desiré Moses | Bluegrass Situation, December 1, 2017
