Randall To The Rescue…Again

March 14, 2024

Spent all morning with this guy: I’ve talked about him before. He is my mentor, and not just because he has more musical talent in one pinky than I’ll ever have in my whole body if I practiced piano 12 hours a day. 😂

He is my mentor because he is always so encouraging and never makes me feel stupid for asking incessant questions: “What chord would that be?” “Would that be eighth-note triplets or sixteenth-note triplets?”

Today, he helped me get some music “publisher-ready” because I had a worship leader in Ontario, Canada ask me for the sheet music to “Peace” and “Redeemed” and I couldn’t very well tell him that it’s half finished because I play a lot of my notes in the recording studio from the hip. 😉


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.
