Motema Music's Jana Herzen noted the role Cary played in the label's development in this Billboard Magazine feature:
What did the signing of Gregory Porter in 2009 do for Motéma?
He really put us on the map. My publicist, Cary Goldberg, had a friend, Paul Ewing, who was Gregory’s manager. He brought him to this office. Hearing him sing, I knew he was a man with a soul that was super deep. We recorded Water in 2010, which earned our first Grammy nomination in 2011. Then his next album, Be Good, was also nominated for a Grammy.
