Remember I was talking about doing a cover of a song that I love? Within three days of making that decision, this little cutie-patootie came over to my makeshift studio to “lay down the vocal track.”

I notice that’s how I always refer to Megan; I just can’t help myself. I mean look at her: she’s adorable.

Megan was in a hurry and she only had time to do two takes of a particular section of the music. That’s all it took. When she was done, she turned around and looked at me. “Are you crying?”





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.
