Welcome to BuzzMusic, Sean Della Croce. We're head over heels for the intimate listening experience you've blessed us with in your new single, "Rebecca Henry." What was the driving force of inspiration behind this emotional single?
Thanks so much! The driving force for me was an actual person with whom I was acquainted in college. At my liberal arts school, the ultimate catch was the artsiest, most stylish, avid reader philosopher girl. Of course, I was afraid to talk to her.
What did you want listeners to pick up on and take away after experiencing your vulnerable single, "Rebecca Henry?”
I hope listeners can connect the lyrics to a “Rebecca Henry” in their lives. Whether it’s an actual person or a dream, they are chasing. The song is all about what lies on the other side of a captivating mystery.
What inspired the calming photography scene within your music video for "Rebecca Henry?”
The character of Rebecca Henry in the song is a painter, so we wanted to portray a woman creating visual art of some kind. Brett Price and I brainstormed many ideas before we finally landed on the concept of a large-format photograph being taken over the course of the entire video. It’s a long process to make those images, so it felt fitting, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.
Why did you choose this particular scene for the music video?
I think the story behind “Rebecca Henry” is very visual and lends itself to this type of treatment. When Laura Partain agreed to lend her photographic talents and acting skills to the project, it was a no-brainer.
What was your favorite part about creating the music video for "Rebecca Henry?”
The process of making the music video was so enjoyable because I had the chance to work with my friends. I have known the co-creators of the video, Brett Price and Connor Carrol, for about a decade now, so I was with people I trust in a fun and intimate environment.
What did you appreciate most?
I’m always grateful when I have the opportunity to share my music with a wider audience. I’ve been heartened by the response to the single by local radio stations around the country who make a point to support independent artists.
What's next for you?
I am excited to embark on a tour of Germany in September of this year. I’ve been working on a collaboration with my good friend Judith Beckedorf, who is an incredible performer and guitar player, so we’re releasing some music and playing a bunch of dates in her home country.
