My days are running together. We've slept in shifts as we grow more comfortable with the girls being home so I've had a lot of time to think.

A reoccurring thought: I hope our girls take after their mother when meeting new people.  I've always struggled in social situations and I know it's cost me over the years. I'm solitary by nature and this fact hasn't done my music career many favors as I've given many the wrong impression.

None of this is to say that I couldn't be an egotistical dick in the early part of my creative journey. The ego is a young artists ultimate weapon in their fight for validation. I think back to some of the things I did and said and am filled with such terrible regret. It's difficult to remind oneself that those were the thoughts and words of a much different person. 
As I sit here this evening, 30 years old and a father of two (four if you count the fur children) I think of music, both my own and the work of others, and am filled with such incredible gratitude. Thankful to have shared the stage with such wonderful musicians, thankful to have had such tremendous musicians grace my recordings, and hopeful that I will enjoy much more of the same as the years pass. 
So to my fellow dreamers - I am your biggest fan and I love you madly. I hope for you nothing but success as we navigate the same murky waters in search of the source of our longing. I remain certain that there's a light ahead. Stay the course. -www.brandonwhitemusic.com-

Our nerves are fried... Our minds and our bodies tired, but we're together.  We're forever grateful to the wonderful NICU nurses  and doctors that took care of our girls and helped us to this moment. We've also been so totally humbled by the generosity of so many who've offered up their time and resources to help us navigate a difficult path home.

We now begin the process of settling into our new normal. It's funny, I was so concerned with how I would respond to my time no longer being my own - the thought seems so foreign to me now. I couldn't imagine anything being more important than being the best Dad and Husband I can be. 
I've known a lot of musicians/artists that, for whatever reason, thought that becoming a parent would somehow doom their art. Some of us have a penchant for the dramatic, I suppose... As for me, I feel a renewed sense of purpose. My music/art has never been more important to me - by continuing to create and perform I hope to show my girls that they're free to follow their passion and to pursue their dreams however they see fit. They were born into this world with permission to do so. 
I'm trying so hard to take in every moment. This is such an amazing time in our lives that I know I'll always draw from. 
My heart is full. -www.brandonwhitemusic.com-

This photo holds and will hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. Today my father was able to hold my daughter for the first time and though that would be a special moment for any new parent, I'd like to share why it was even more-so for me... My daughters were born on August 21, exactly one year after my father was told that his cancer had returned. It was the beginning of what would become a near seven month battle that would test our family in ways we never imagined.

During this time I stayed at my parents house, taking care of the family dog and trying to help in anyway I could. Living away from my wife for so long while trying to maintain my focus for my parents was difficult to say the least - but I couldn't see any other way forward. 
My entire life my parents did everything they could to provide me the best life possible. They weren't perfect, no parent is - but they showed me what it is to be selfless. You see when you get yourself out of the way, you allow yourself to truly love and serve others. You're able to be kind without ulterior motive. 
I saw the opportunity to help my parents as a way to try and repay some insurmountable debt I owe them. Seven months of my life could never stack up to the thirty years they've given me. I'm a lucky man.

They fought hard for the moment captured in this photo. On August 21, 2016 my father walked into a hospital to receive news that his fight wasn't over. On August 21, 2017 my father walked into the hospital to meet his granddaughters after countless chemotherapy and radiation treatments, multiple brain surgeries and a stem-cell transplant - victorious.

The true glory of life has nothing to do with money or status or what you own. You're looking at the top of the mountain my friends.

There is no way to truly describe becoming a father without being reduced to a cliche spewing pile of mush - but I'm going to attempt to share my experience thus far... Our Quinn is now home with us - it's wonderful having her here and my wife and I are slowly adjusting to our new normal. Our precious Scarlet remains in the NICU for the time being. We are incredibly anxious to have her home and remain hopeful that we'll all be reunited soon.

I'm proud to report that I've taken to changing poopy diapers, doctoring diaper rash, swaddling,  and bottle prep with the savvy of a 10 year vet... Though I must confess, the usage of a bulb syringe continues to scare the shit out of me.

It's difficult for me to put into words the scope of emotions we've experienced with the girls being separated... The anxiety of learning how to parent in the NICU... The feeling of being pulled in so many directions... I'll attempt to sum it up.

This is true beauty.
This is true fear.
This is true love.

Our family has experienced its fair share of hardship over the last year and we've learned one thing. We're built for it. We're better for it.

I hope this finds you well. I'll resume the release of new music and video content once things settle down.  I apologize for any type-o's... Haven't slept much 😉. #makeyourartmakeyourmark #brandonwhitemusic #songwriter #singersongwriter #twins #twingirls #twinsisters #baby #babies #beautiful #cute #precious #instagood #instadaily #instaartist #independentartist #independentmusic #acousticguitar #acoustic #photography #poetry #art #artist #truelove #follow
