In an interview with Fox News last November, the multi-instrumentalist explained how life had changed for him since the success of “The Git Up,” which was released in May 2019.
“It’s been an interesting ride,” he admitted. “I take it one breath at a time, one stride at a time. And, you know, just try to continue to spread positive energy and purpose… I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I will say that I’ll continue to manifest my purpose and just keep this journey going; making great music with meaning.”
Blanco also added that he has no intention of slowing down. “I just want to keep on riding. It’s what I do for a living, it’s my calling and I just want to continue to spread the purpose. That’s my living message,” he shared.
“You know, the journey of writing these records, I started in 2011 — the end of 2011, beginning of 2012 and I’ve been building thus far. Eight years of putting this body of work together and I’m just glad to be on this journey, this course.”
Our thoughts are with Blanco and his family as they face a tough road ahead.
