Release of “Livin’ Outside the Box”

May 26, 2023

May 26, 2022: Recorded this song
May 26, 2023: Released this song

I guess on May 26, 2024, I better come up with something new. 😎

Ken had this little idea two years ago, so we jetted off to Nashville and the two of us met with Jennie List; she got out her guitar, and in two hours, the three of us came up with “Livin’ Outside the Box.”

Last May, Nicholas Palmer—one of the best guitar players I’ve ever met—worked his magic in the studio. Jennie added her vocals and like Ken always says, she “has the voice of an angel.” Dallas Jack from Record One captured it all.

Enjoy, 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.
