Kelly Padrick – ‘Heavenly Ride’

Singer songwriter Kelly Padrick has a light and happy feel with her latest track, ‘Heavenly Ride’. With references to Bible stories and fairy tales, her goal in the song is to speak to as many people as possible through the inspiration of literature.

Originally from Rhode Island, New York, Kelly started writing songs at five years old, and moved to New York City as soon as she was able to, in order to work in the music business. She’s collaborated with many other artists and producers, including songwriter Nancy Hess, who she has worked with since 2006, and with whom she has scored some top spots over time. Her song ‘Pizza & Fairytales’ was featured in Fox Searchlight’s movie ‘Trust The Man’, and in 2010 ‘Ties That Bind’ and ‘The Brooklyn Hours’ were featured prominently in ABC’s promos for ‘Desperate Housewives’.

Kelly’s strong discography – she has released seven LPs and four EPs – are an indication as to how she’s managed to score such placements, while her 2014 release, ‘Radiance’, shows how much she has grown as an artist as she calls out for her past lovers while welcoming new flames.

The music video for her most recent single, ‘Heavenly Ride’, was produced by Canadian production company Flirt Films. Teaming up with director Patricia Chica, with whom she’s worked before, the song shows Kelly and her boyfriend trying to get to their mobile home vacation destination. Completely alone, their love grows stronger – but the trip comes to an abrupt halt when they get a flat tyre. There’s a 60s California surf vibe to the track, made all the stronger with her almost careless sexiness.
