Heavenly Ride is New York singer-songwriter Kelly Padrick’s 10th collaboration with award-winning Canadian director Patricia Chica (Morning After, Ceramic Tango, Serpent’s Lullaby). The sunny video-short was filmed in the spectacular landscapes of Southern California. The song is composed by Kelly Padrick and her long time musical collaborator Nancy Hess and was recorded in Hess’ studios in Portland, Oregon.
“Heavenly Ride is a sun-soaked frolic in 60’s California surf, with classic guitar riffs and sunshiney vocals to take you down a winding sonic highway,” says Nancy Hess who also sings background vocals on the song.
“I wanted my new single to be a happy song. Heavenly Ride is intended to make you feel good!,” says singer Kelly Padrick.
The gorgeous music video presents a woman played by Kelly Padrick who is enchanted by her lover, played by Italian actor Dario Barbuto, when he comes back home with a surprise that takes them on heavenly ride.
“After spending four years in Los Angeles, I wanted to exploit the grandiose landscapes we have here in Southern California. I was inspired by the Coast; the Sunshine, the Mountains and the Ocean; all the elements that define the true California experience in my fantasies,” says director, producer Patricia Chica. “Heavenly Ride is the perfect Summer tune!,” she adds.
