We are thrilled to announce that this project, "When I Rise," is on the way and should arrive at Maple Street Music in just a week or so! The official release date is October 26th, but as supporters of the project, we will be delivering your copy in early September - wooohoooo! We may be contacting you to determine what, specifically, to send to each donor and ensure that we have all the correct information.
We can't thank you enough for supporting this effort and for your patience as we bring it to completion. In the spirit of community and the support of fantastic music,
Cary and Celeste
Hello Cary Morin Supporters!
Cary's 2018 Tour is going very well. He was just awarded the 2018 Independent Music Award for Best Blues CD at The Lincoln Center in New York City! Cary is extremely honored and humbled by the experience. We are in the final phases of mixing and mastering his new CD (title and details soon!).
We wanted to let you know that although you may have received a message from Go Get Funding that his project was not fully funded, we want to confirm with you that it is, in fact, fully funded! The largest percentage of donations were off line, meaning that they did not come through this site so were not counted. But yes, your support and contributions have brought him to full funding.
We will keep the page here open for 2018. And bring you updates as they happen.
Have a wonderful and musical summer 2018!
Celeste and Cary
t is with immense gratitude that we announce the success of Cary Morin’s 2018 funding campaign for his 2018 CD release and tour! We could not have pulled this off without the generosity of community.

We are at the end of our 3rd week of a 2½ month tour. We are now listening to the first mixes from Cary’s recordings for the new project. They are sounding fantastic, thanks to the fine work of James Tuttle at Subtle Sound, and the incredible talents and fine-tuned ears of Kim Stone & Jay Forrest. Lionel Young, Steven Amedee, Andy Weyl, & Dexter Payne added some wonderful texture as well. A big shout out to Blake Miller for coming to the studio for video and photography. We are fine tuning details and adding some here and there at this point. We hope to be working with our publicist in the next few months to bring the release to you all in September. Again, thank you all so very much!
Hi everyone! I hope the holidays were good for you. Things were pretty quiet around here, Celeste went home for a week, the kids all took off the studio was closed and I was here with a couple of dogs and a bunch of guitars. We ate and sang and did dog stuff. My mom came over a few times and we had some meals. Well that's all behind us now and I've been getting back to work. This CD is going to be half solo performances as I usually do and half band stuff. We have a producer that some of you might have heard before. I met him about 30 years ago about the same time he left Spyro Gyra http://spyrogyra.com/ and before he joined The Rippingtons. http://www.rippingtons.com/ He is a genius bassist and a fine human, Kim Stone. We will begin recording at the new Etown studio in Boulder, Colorado in a few weeks. I look forward to being there because there are a bunch of fine musicians hanging around there for the radio show. Maybe we can borrow some of them while we are there? In the mean time I have been back in front of the microphones working on the acoustic part of the project. I haven't been singing as much as I normally when Celeste and I travel so that part of it is a little stressful. Today I am at home forcing to sing so when I go to the studio tonight I won't sound like I just got out of bed!
Thank you all very much for your kindness and support on this project and for us all the time. Without you there is no us. Bye for now and again, Happy New Year to all of you!
