Padrino covers Gregory Isaacs' "Stranger In Town" on 13thStreetPromotions.com

Padrino Channels “The Cool Ruler” Gregory Isaacs On New Cover Single


Bahamian born Recording Artist/Producer Padrino may be a modern Artist, but he has the soul of an OG. While he grew up listening to some of the greats in R&B, Soul, Reggae, and Dancehall, he took inspiration from them to give his music a different sound and feel. An example of that was his recently released “Right Here”, which taps into US R&B group SWV’s “Right Here” from 1992. Expanding his Artistry, he looks to tap into more classics, including the likes of the late Jamaican Icon Gregory Isaacs for his latest single.

Covering Gregory Isaacs’ 1982 hit “Stranger In Town”, Padrino gives us “The 2021 Cool Ruler” as he steps out channeling the late Lovers Rock crooner. Padrino gives us his signature smooth delivery, and does justice to the classic song. Gregory Isaacs released “Stranger In Town” in 1982, and it was featured on his classic album, “Night Nurse”, which was released through Isaacs’ African Museum label along with US based Mango label, and UK based Island Records. Padrino cites Gregory Isaacs as one of his Idols growing up, and it was only right that he paid tribute to him by covering his music. In addition to the “Stranger In Town” single, a Music Video directed by Brucie Bruce and Jason Bevans has been released.
