"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. His fame overseas is warranted and one can only hope exposure to American blues fans will get this artist the same recognition at home."
“Top 40 Modern Blues Artists for 2015 #36 Cary Morin (from the album Tiny Town) - The Americana Blues from the finger-picking styles of Native American, Cary Morin, shines on his third album release, Tiny Town. Cary is a member of the Crow nation, and the son of an Air Force officer dad. He grew up in Billings, Montana before relocating and fine-tuning in guitar skills in northern Colorado.”
"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... Classic. Order yours today..." -Richard Higgs Co-Host of Folk Salad 89.5 Public Radio Tulsa

““Cary might have just given us the secret recipe of the Blues here. Storytelling, songwriting and honesty. Music from the guts really. And while Cary is still unsure of deserving to be called a blues player, we’re not afraid to tell you that his acoustic blues release ‘Sing It Louder’ definitely confirms that he’s not only a blues musician, he’s a great one.””
““…this recording showcases Morin’s deft fingerstyle guitar and distinctive songwriting style, which has been described as acoustic Native Americana, 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.’””
““Music Maker Relief Foundation artist Cary Morin's laugh-out-loud funny new ragtime song ‘W’ appears on his new album 'Sing It Louder,' out December 6 on Music Maker Relief Foundation with the refrain ‘A beer in my hand is better than two in the Bush.’ Other verses take the point of view of the former president. Morin says, ‘The song explored the possible explanation for how things went so terribly wrong with that administration: what if he really was drinking the whole time?’ 'Sing It Louder' highlights Morin’s deft fingerstyle guitar talents and distinctive songwriting style and showcases Morin’s decades of music experience. A staple of the Fort Collins, CO music scene, the Native American Morin is a stellar songwriter. The town of Fort Collins recently created a public mural in celebration of local musicians, including Morin, serves as testament to Morin’s impact on music in the area.””
“One Track Mind: Cary Morin, “Sing It Louder” There is a shambling, plain-spoken beauty to this track as Cary Morin, a Crow Indian from North Dakota, sings about dancing his way toward salvation. Powered by some ever-so-fleet fingerstyle guitar and a distinctive vocal — one that combines Van Morrison with a dusty-booted country tinge — “Sing It Louder” will make you want to do just that. It’s only later that the song’s deeper message, the one about salvation, sinks in. And that’s just the beginning of the backstory for ‘Sing It Louder,’...Elsewhere on Morin’s album he traverses an impressive array of styles, from blues and jazz to bluegrass and reggae. But it’s here, on the title track, that he finds both his most memorable groove and perhaps his most heartfelt message of hope in troubled times. It’s great music, for a great cause.”
