Following the release of her buzz-worthy first single of 2020 ‘Blueprint’, Nashville-based artist Hadley Kennary returns with the nostalgic summer song ‘Painter’.

Laced with hints of the mid-2000s songwriter-pop Hadley was raised on, ‘Painter’ is about how we leave imprints on each other’s lives. With bittersweet memories and melodies you can’t help but sing along to, Hadley explores the rollercoaster journey of letting go. ‘Painter’ is the perfect soundtrack to a windows-rolled-down sunset drive.

Hadley has played in venues as SPACE in Chicago and the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, as well as several shows in Ireland and the UK. She’s been featured in songwriting competitions such as Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Songwriting Competition (where she won 2nd place in 2015).

Her soulful and grounded vocal attention, give off a light of warmth and delight, as she describes moments of moment through poetry and melodies.

‘Painter’ is that feel-good place you’d always knew was at your reach.

Somewhere in the middle of spring, I decided I wanted to release “Painter”. The song itself was finished, but I didn’t have any visuals ready, nor could I reach out to a photographer because no one was leaving their houses…So I did my best to set up a backyard photoshoot. I didn’t have a tripod, I didn’t have any lightning control. I did have a ladder, a citronella candle to help my phone sit upright, a self-timer, and some elementary school style paint in my craft drawer. Somewhere amidst my efforts I ended up with this semi-spooky, not-quite-golden-hour-lit shot for the single artwork. It was a goofy, half-baked creative experiment, but such is life ✨ Stream “Painter” at the link in my bio 🎨
