Coleman R. Brice is the scrumptiously pretentious full legal name of recording artist Colie Brice. He likes to think his name sounds rather distinctive so he'll occasionally use it as part of a futile marketing ploy to further his crumbling sonic empire and make his eclectic recorded works sound more relevant. Also now that he's older and more gritty and less pretty, folks seem to be be calling him Coleman more often. In any case, for additional info, please visit: http://coliebrice.com
