“I See you In My Dream” is the second single to be released off the new EP and will officially release on March 13th as a lyric video.
Indie singer/songwriter Carrington MacDuffie will be releasing her 5 song EP “I’m The One” on April 24, 2020. With the recent release of her lyric video and single, “Because I Couldn’t Have You,” MacDuffie is giving the music lover a wide variety of styles wrapped up in one package.
Ahead of the release of her EP, MacDuffie’s latest single, by way of a lyric video, gives us a look into what she has in store for her fans. “I See You In My Dreams” is stamped with MacDuffie’s signature style all over it, from a retro feel of vintage vinyl and its ability to melodically transport the listener through the song along with her. The video in and of itself is literally as if you are traveling through a dream sequence, with movements and lighting in sync with each line of the song. MacDuffie brings her own personality and artistry to this track, which has gained her a huge following and fanbase, which is sure to continue to soar. It can be difficult to take so many different styles and genre influences and meld them into a bottle, however, that is a testament to MacDuffie’s true talent and the transitions seamlessly join together for pure genius on this track.
In listening to the entire EP, I could not help replaying each track over and over due to the catchy hooks and the blend of instrumentation, unlike any other, along with the soothing yet gritty vocals. This EP is for anyone, whether it is a rainy Sunday morning vibe, a wine Wednesday groove or a fun Friday night out on the town adventure. MacDuffie gives the listener all of who she is in each of these songs. Make sure to get your copy on April 24th.

More About Carrington MacDuffie:
Far-reaching influences of a lively musical childhood weave through Carrington’s unusual, hook-laden songs, and stand out in her new EP, “I’m the One”. The spirit of independence runs deep in her lineage, with her English forebears having fought in the American Revolution, including a colonel who crossed the Delaware River with General Washington. This maverick spirit has persevered through successive generations and informs Carrington’s artistic practices, her passions, and her calling in life.
A native New Yorker, Carrington’s love for music was sparked in early childhood while listening, dancing and singing to the records that her dad, a huge music aficionado, was spinning — Teddy Wilson, Beethoven, Herb Alpert, Hudson River folk, Scottish marches, Bob Dylan, classic rock, and the Beatles, among many other artists. She went on to study in New England and Baltimore and lived beachside in Los Angeles for a decade. Currently, she divides her time between Austin and Seattle.
Recently, Carrington has devoted much of her time to touring. In 2018, she began the year with a trio of shows at the Sundance Film Festival showcase, then set out on an ambitious two-month tour of Europe including the United Kingdom through spring and summer, with radio shows along the way. Along with British musician and composer Adam Blake, she performed shows to a wide range of audiences in Germany, Holland, Belgium, and France, where she played at the popular club Belushi’s in Paris. Highlights in the UK included shows in Bristol, Bath, Brighton, Glasgow, and Inverness.
Without a doubt, the pièce de résistance of that year was a visit to the pristine Isle of Colonsay in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Colonsay is the ancestral home of the MacDuffie clan, where they lived for centuries before heading to the American colonies in the early 1600s. Carrington had the thrill of performing in a church on the site where her ancestors worshipped. The experience deepened her connection to her Scottish roots, and to the country itself. “As soon as we crossed the border from England into Scotland, I felt an energy shift. I felt free,” she says. It also inspired one of her newest songs, “Glasgow,” a rousing tune about both the city, and the circumstances of grass-roots life as a musician on the road.
In 2019, Carrington toured the UK for two months, singing and playing her custom electric ukulele, with a guitarist completing the duo – over the course of the dates, she was accompanied by Anthony William, Carter Arrington, and John Gray. A couple of full-band shows were on the itinerary – in Dundee, and at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in the Scottish Highlands. Other highlights included TVWStock in Wales and Stockport Pride in England.
She has recently released singles online, including “I’m the One,” “Glasgow,” and a kick-out-the-jams version of “Blue Christmas”. Looking ahead, Carrington will release an EP in April 2020, and currently has recording projects going in Glasgow, Austin, and Nashville. New songs include the originals “I Saw You Be a Man” – about the archetypal way men and women relate intimately – and “The Kiss I didn’t Get Last Night,” of which she says, “It expresses how the elusiveness of a real connection with another soul can take on a mysterious and sexy tone.” The latter two were recorded with the same Nashville team that played on her 2018 LP Kiss Make Better. She’s also in production on a rocking cover of Kacey Musgrave’s “Follow Your Arrow,” with tracking underway in Glasgow, Seattle, and Austin.
As a voice actor, Carrington has recently performed narrations for audiobooks of Gail Sheehy’s landmark bestseller Passages, Marianne Williamson’s newest book A Politics of Love, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson’s What Are We Doing Here. She served as the voice of Ancestry.com for three years, and she has voiced biographies of Joni Mitchell, Pussy Riot, and Jack Kerouac, and characters in video games including “World of Warcraft,” in which she played a shamanic Scottish dwarf.
Carrington traverses the globe and her inner muses with gleeful explorations of thought and practice. Whether making music, writing poetry, voicing works of literature, piloting a fixed-wing airplane, or savoring the zen-like concentration of target shooting, she is led by her passion for creativity, and, of course, independence.
“I think the purpose of life is joy,” says Carrington. “I see the world as one big art happening, and I love participating in it.”
