Singing & Spaghetti & Selfies

February 10, 2022

Songwriter and friend practicing song for upcoming recording
Me and Megan

Singing. Spaghetti. Selfies. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Now that the cello section is done for my latest song, I went over the vocals with this girl. I usually hire singers out of Nashville, but this time, I decided to have Megan do the lead singing.

We laughed so hard trying to get the perfect selfie. Then, we ate spaghetti together, laughing some more.

Man, I love my job.

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.
