A singer, songwriter, voice actor and poet, Carrington MacDuffie is a well-known spoken word performer and narrator who has voiced a wide range of characters and dialects, including the part of a shamanic Scottish dwarf in World of Warcraft. But music is her true passion, and throughout her unique and multi-faceted career she has honed her innate gift for musicality, lyricism and performance.
From the time she began writing songs as a teenager in her native New York, MacDuffie's musical inspiration has been fueled by expansive experimentation in songwriting and performance styles, drawing on the sounds and rhythms of New Wave, World, and New Age. But it was in the Americana scene that she felt her spirit come alive. Austin, Texas, that special community where music is ubiquitous, drew her in.
Her new EP Only An Angel is a cool breeze of Americana that features contemporary musical arrangements, Carrington’s smooth and sexy vocal style, and world-class musicianship. MacDuffie’s writing and performance reflect those of the artists who influenced her at a young age, such as Bobbie Gentry, Neil Young, and Cat Stevens.
Only An Angel is musical poetry you feel in your soul. To put it in MacDuffie’s terms, “I think there’s always going to be a part of us that just wants to sit on the porch swing and listen to music.”
