Release of “I’ll Carry You”

November 23, 2022

My latest single “I’ll Carry You” is now out on all platforms.

I say “my single” but this was a group effort.

This song started as Ken’s idea with preliminary lyrics about close friends of ours. I suggested rhyming and a bit more imagery. Storms were mentioned.😉

We took his creation to Nashville this past May and showed it to the producer, Dallas Jack, who brought in the perfect voice in vocalist Ethan Feril. The four of us fleshed the song out over the next couple hours.

Also, a shout-out to a local farmer, Jason VanderKooy, who took this amazing picture locally—it’s exactly what I was looking for—that I turned into the album cover.

It’s not my usual genre. Is it country? Is it folk? My publicist said it’s probably “folk Americana.” What it is is a love song. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.

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.
