Genuine Happiness

December 16, 2023

Dallas, Ken, Isaac, me, and Megan

Today was such a surreal day. I spent six straight hours in the recording studio with these amazing people. Six hours, and the time just flew by.

The people on either side of me had never sung together and when they did? Magical. So magical that I had Isaac—I’ve talked about him before—add some harmonies to the cover song that I keep talking about that Megan and I are doing together.

Just look at all that genuine happiness on our faces.

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
