Hey There Delilah – Conshohocken Connection?
by Brian Coll
I’ll keep this short and simple…. I just heard the song Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T’s and realized…. I’ve known for years the Delilah that inspired the song was living here in Conshohocken at the time. However, I’m not sure if anyone of you had ever heard that. So, I thought I would share this little nugget.
Tom Higgenson, lead singer for the Plain White T’s, who wrote the song five years after meeting Delilah DiCrescenzo. Tom Higgenson told her he was going to write a song about her, even though she had a boyfriend at the time.
Delilah DiCrescenzo, was a long distance runner at the time and coached at Bryn Mawr while living here in Conshohocken.
Honestly, we have no idea of anything recent about Delilah, if she’s still living in the area, we’d love to hear from her.
Here is a photo from her attending an award show with the band.
