Singer-Songwriter Sean Della Croce Releases New Single, ‘Rebecca Henry’, With A Video That Begins In A Beautiful Blur

‘Rebecca Henry’, by Sean Della Croce, is a gorgeous song that tells a story of the titular character Rebecca Henry. Whether she actually exists, or is merely a portrait of Sean Della Croce’s perfect woman, it doesn’t matter; in Croce’s hands Rebecca Henry is fully formed and beautiful.

Lyrics such as

“’cause she’s got a Walden Pond hidden around somewhere, I’m gonna find it and make a little sense”


“Rebecca Henry walks on the holy water that you drown in every day”

float out of Croce’s lips, as if she was reciting poetry rather than singing a song. Rebecca Henry doesn’t know her maker’s name: I believe I do, and it’s Sean Della Croce. Accompanied by subtle instrumentals, Croce’s voice leads us to fall in love with Rebecca Henry as well. And if our praise seems a bit over the top, the great Janis Ian has described Sean Della Croce as “one of the best young singer-songwriters I’ve heard.”

The music video for ‘Rebecca Henry’, directed by Brett Price and Connor Carroll, feels like a showcase for Croce and Croce alone. The focus is on the artist, as she sits on a chair against a beautiful green wall. She sings, she reads a book; and then we realise she’s not by herself. There’s a photographer as well, taking photos on a vintage camera, framing Croce in the ancient viewfinder. We see her face, and at times it feels like maybe she’s Rebecca Henry; or maybe she’s in love with Croce. She is mysterious and delightful. Our research tells us that her name is Laura E Partain, and she is a photographer in Nashville. Check her out here.
