Music in the Morning

January 22, 2024

The husband has been out of town for the past five days. I could have gone out shopping, but I didn’t, mainly because, well… I hate shopping.

Or I could have had a rip-roaring party with a bunch of girlfriends (and when I say rip-roaring, I mean we would have played games and ate snacks).

What did I do instead? I had this cutie-patootie over on Friday morning and we listened to the master of the cover we recorded back in December when the producer came to town.

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.
