On August 31, 2020, Blanco Brown was involved in a near tragic motorcycle accident. He broke his wrists, legs, arms and pelvis, prompting a 12-hour surgery that thankfully saw him recover after a month.
Blanco Brown shared his journey to recovery, admitting that it was tough on him in the hospital as he couldn’t get visitors due to the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and precautions in place at the time, but even then, he credited music as what kept him grounded during the painful moments in the hospital. At that time he was listening to the music of artists he loved rather than creating music, but now that Blanco Brown is happily and gratefully back in the studio, he’s promising fans an honest project.
