Inspired by the mountains of Colorado where she was born and raised, Carin Mari is an artist who is passionate about writing songs and telling stories from the heart.

Carin, entered the Texaco Country Showdown and won a trip to Nashville where she felt her dreams coming true playing her original songs on stage at the historic Ryman Auditorium. While pursuing her own career, Carin is thrilled to be the lead guitar player in, Michael Martin Murphey’s, Rio Grande Band. Carin co-produced her new album, “Home,” and it is her fourth professional project as a solo artist.
