Singer-songwriter Kelly Padrick releases her new video “Waiting For This” directed by Patricia Chica
MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE
(New York, NY) – February 18th, 2019. Kelly Padrick’s new music video Waiting For This premieres on ThriveGlobal.com. “Waiting For This” is the singer-songwriter’s 11th collaboration with award-winning Canadian director Patricia Chica ( Morning After, Ceramic Tango, Serpent’s Lullaby). The song is composed by Kelly Padrick and her long time musical collaborator Nancy Hess and was recorded in Hess’ studios in Portland, Oregon.
The video begins with scenes of a Gatsby-esque party filled with friends and plenty of drinks to go around. Scenes flick back and forth from the party to a dozen T.V. monitors filled with screens of black and white static, old memories, and Padrick’s past music videos. A hand sweeps across the screen portraying the person who was reminiscing the past, but not missing it. The lyrics tell the story of moving on from someone and getting ready to start a new life without them. When two people are at different points in their lives, it is easy to get caught up in a cycle of comfort without progression, “Waiting For This” allows emotional freedom from a partner without burden.
The video of “Waiting For This” is written, directed and edited by Patricia Chica of Flirt Films. Starring Kelly Padrick as well as dancers Simone Tissenbaum, Phoebe M. M., Alba Moreno Daza and Shaïna Luzincourt. Producers: Jasmine Durand and Patricia Chica. Director of Photography: Martin Bouchard. Camera B: Alexandre Schippers. Choreography by Giulia Tripoli, assisted by Simone Tissenbaum. Makeup and Hair by Stephanie Miramontes (Actors) and Bruna Sunnye (Extras). Art Direction by Stephanie Burbano, assisted by AJ Little. Original Jewelry by Sonia Bandulet. Color Correction by Wesley Mroziński. The song was written by Kelly Padrick and Nancy Hess.
Moreover, keep an eye out for the screening of Kelly Padrick’s previous award-winning music video “Heavenly Ride” at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema to be held in California from March 5th – 10th.
The distribution of “Waiting For This” is being handled by the team of HIP Video Promo. “Waiting For This” will soon start its film festival tour.

About Kelly Padrick
Kelly Padrick started her songwriting career at the age of five and eventually moved to New York to pursue her passion in the independent music scene. She has created songs that can now be found in movie soundtracks and T.V. shows, and will never abandon her creative streak. With almost a dozen albums and EPs, Padrick finds inspiration in everything from her past doodles on schoolwork to current heartbreaks and uses any emotion to spark a creative composition. Heavily influenced by Dolly Parton, Padrick’s music always has an authentic passion, natural sexiness and a hint of attitude.
All of Padrick’s hard work has paid off as success floats her way. Most recently, her music video “Heavenly Ride” won a silver award at the California Film Awards and has been nominated for two awards (Best Female Solo Artist and True California) at the California Music Video and Film Awards. Award-winning director Patricia Chica has produced and directed all of her edgy anecdotal music videos.
“Pizza and Fairytales” was featured in the Fox Searchlight movie Trust the Man, the 2010 season of ABC’s Desperate Housewives (which prominently featured “Ties that Bind” and “The Brooklyn Hours”), MTV, and HBO’s VICE.
“Waiting For This” is Kelly Padrick’s 11th music video.

For “Waiting For This”, I wanted to challenge Kelly Padrick to execute a dance choreography and for her not to have to interact with a man within the storyline! We would see her various past relationships in the monitors throughout the video, so we didn’t need her to be with a male in the storyline of this one. It was more about her having a blast being surrounded by friends and enjoying herself.
Kelly also wanted to showcase her past videos as a retrospective of her career. It was very moving, for me, to revisit the old times. So many great collaborations and memories throughout our mutual work. “Waiting For This” is our 11th music video together, in a 12-year incredible collaboration.
