Far-reaching influences of a lively musical childhood weave through Carrington’s songs, and stand out in her latest LP, Sweet Little Mystery, the title track of which has received over a quarter million streams on YouTube, and radio airplay across Europe and the USA. 

A native New Yorker, Carrington’s love for music was sparked in early childhood while cutting up the oriental rug and singing to the records that her dad was spinning — swing jazz, Beethoven, Herb Alpert, Hudson River folk, Scottish marches, exotic World, classic rock, and the Beatles, among many other artists. She went on to study at Johns Hopkins, Harvard, and Boston University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in English. After a period of living beachside of the West Coast she migrated to Texas where she makes her home.

From 2018 to 2020, Carrington devoted much of her time to touring, beginning with a trio of shows at the Sundance Film Festival showcase, followed by a two-month tour of Europe and the United Kingdom with radio shows along the way. She performed to a wide range of audiences in Germany, Holland, Belgium, and France, where she played at the popular club Belushi’s in Paris. The following year saw another 2-month UK tour, singing and playing her custom electric ululele, with a guitarist completing the duo, roaming Great Britain, playing pubs, clubs and festivals from London to Wales to the Scottish Highlands.  A 3-week stint in Scotland in 2020 yielded more recordings, and the hot rock-band video of her song “I Saw You Be A Man,” another popular number on YouTube.

One of the highlights of her UK travel has been 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 “Glasgow,” one of the songs off her 2020 EP I’m The One, a rousing tune about both the city, and the conditions of grass-roots life as a musician on the road.

As a voice actor, Carrington served for several years as the voice of Ancestry.com, and she has narrated over 250 audiobooks, including biographies of Joni Mitchell, Pussy Riot, and Jack Kerouac. She has also voiced various video game characters, most notably a shamanic Scottish dwarf in World of Warcraft.  In 2023 she launches her new audio imprint, Night Light Audio, which will feature fairy tales with sound design, and some of our most stirring founding documents. Her work as a video producer and director continues to generate exciting mini-moves of her material, and she’s currently at work on her next album, Rebel In The House of Love, music infused with the independent spirit of a Daughter of the Revolution. Stay tuned for singles set for release this year.

Whether making music, voicing literature, training in small-plane piloting or savoring the zen-like focus of target shooting, she is led by her passion for creativity and autonomy. “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”.
