Over 2022, I wrote three verses and a chorus, adding to my previous intro and Katie’s bridge. I lined up a guy to sing harmonies, and was close to recording it when I got sidetracked by my pesky gallbladder.
Instead of recording, I would try to numb my pain by taking scalding hot baths and listen to my hack demo on an endless loop, trying to find my own peace. I also came up with a pretty cello part.
Well, to make a long story short, this song finally got recorded, and will be available in two weeks on February 15.
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.
