If the Stephen Sills’ song “Love the One You’re With” comes to mind this Valentine’s Day, you will enjoy Carrington MacDuffie’s latest single and “Valentine’s Day” anthem, “Because I Couldn’t Have You.” It’s not your typical Valentine’s Day love song!
“The girl in this song isn’t getting her way, but she’s being resourceful in the face of adversity, with much levity and tremendous sex appeal,” says Carrington MacDuffie. “It’s a different’ slant on Valentine’s Day: even if she couldn’t have the one she wanted, she’s definitely got a date for Friday night.”
Happy Valentine’s Day!
About Carrington MacDuffie:
In life and in art, Carrington MacDuffie is an adventurer. A New York native who now splits her time between Austin and Seattle – after a decade beachside in Los Angeles – she travels the globe and joyfully explores diverse universes 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 her endless fascination with exploring both the world outside and her inner muses.
As a singer-songwriter, Carrington first released work in 2014. Her love for music was sparked in early childhood while listening 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 and genres. Those far-reaching influences weave through her entire body of work and stand out in her newest singles and her most recent LP Kiss Make Better.
