“Gonna Live My Life” Official Lyric Video

December 29, 2021

Wrote this song in Nashville back in February: just me and a borrowed Roland and a few pieces of manuscript paper…wrote everything but the bridge in one hour. (It helps that I recycled an old instrumental song I wrote years and years ago.)

Then, Jennie List from Pheasant Productions put this little video together for me and once again, was kind enough to let me find some of the footage because well… it’s so much fun.

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.
