I wish that I could say that I was in a “better place” when I found out the news. It would make for a far more polished and respectable story. But I think back to that night: praying on the floor at 2am as Tricia went to the bathroom to take the pregnancy test I’d just purchased from Walgreens. I was scared. Scared to start working on new music. Scared of trying again and failing. Scared of the process of staring at myself through a page and seeing someone that I wasn’t proud of. Someone that I didn’t like. Someone that wasn’t ready to be a dad.

I’ve always had some make-believe image in my head of who I would be as a father. I held on to clear expectations of where I wanted be in my career, my age, my level of self-care, and my maturity. I basically assumed that I’d have it all together. But in actuality the hypothetical “dad” version of me looked completely different than the man whose heart was beating out of his chest on the carpet, praying to a god or spirit I hadn’t talked to in months. When Tricia walked out of the bathroom, I knew. And I knew I had to change.

5 months later we were recording in a remote cabin away from the density that is Seattle. I was finally having fun in the studio for the first time in years. Songs were getting made, finally. I was going back to the city once a week to attend a birthing class with Tricia. When I got back to the cabin the next day, Ryan had made a new beat that would eventually become the song you’re listening to. Half of it is advice about growing up. The other half is trying to figure out how to grow up myself.

When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back. To look at who you are. This is why “Growing up” felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It’s where I’ve been the last year, through all the ups and downs. We didn’t want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning. Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy.

And if you’re wondering…

Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th. There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her.

– Ben

Ryan Lewis Wins Billboard Magazine's #1 Top Producer of 2013

“In Australia they’re called “op shops.”

Thanks to his international smash hit, and six-week Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Thrift Shop,” Ryan Lewis, 25, has newfound knowledge of and appreciation for thrifting culture around the world. Wherever Lewis and Macklemore, the rapper and his key collaborator, travel in support of their platinum debut album, “The Heist,” fans unfailingly regale the Seattle duo with tales of their own adventures in second-hand clothes shopping — a pastime with unexpectedly universal appeal.” Read the whole article at http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/5748015/billboards-top-producers-of-2013-1-ryan-lewis

Other producers on the list included Joey Moi, The Smeezingtons

Mackemore and Ryan Lewis take the lead in the AMA nominations.

I have been a big fan of these guys since I first discovered them at Rock The Bells 2012 and have been following them ever since. Earlier this year we got to open up for these guys at Paid Dues 2013 and not only was that an amazing experience for us but it was an honor to see how much these guys have grown and gone from being relatively unknown at RTB the year before to headlining Paid Dues the next year, very inspiring. I continue to support these guys and cant see what else they have in store.

Mackemore and Ryan Lewis take the lead in the AMA nominations.
