"I have recorded over 40 albums of eccentric, eclectic, experimental music intermingled with traditional rock, pop, blues and singer/songwriter repertoire, some on major labels with big budgets, others recorded at home DIY style on indie labels.  Recording highlights range from three  elaborately produced albums  with Phantom's Opera which at one time featured Michael Romeo (Symphony X) and later Karl Cochran of Ace Frehley (KISS) and Joe Lynn Turner's (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen)bands to hip indie releases such as a dark, mystical live improvisational recording with Lunar Ensemble featuring Dave Dreiwitz of Ween and Sim Cain of the Henry Rollins Band, etc.

In my youth, I was persistent in pursuing typical paths towards a professional music career, but after tripping out at a Grateful Dead show, I started pursuing a more personal creative direction I call the "Luna Muse" principle and started branding my own kind of music I call New Age Blues.  To that end, in 1997 my solo debut New Age Blues was accepted in the 40th Annual Grammy Nomination Entry List in several categories including Top Instrumental for "17 G (Tribute to Jerry)".  Colie is also very proud to be listed on the Grateful Dead Family Discography for that track.

As a stage musician, I have performed at diverse venues ranging from the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, to the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California and many points in between.  I have shared the bill with an eclectic variety of notable acts such as Dick Dale, Layonne Holmes (Jon Bon Jovi solo band) Juggling Suns, Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel), Dick Manitoba (Dictators), Marshall Tucker, Skid Row, Jill Sobule, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes among many others.

In 2014 the Abbe Museum in association with the Smithsonian Institute commissioned me to produce and compose a sound sculpture to accompany their Circle of the Four Directions Exhibit honoring the culturing traditions of the Wabanaki nation.

 I am a southpaw, Chamelon, Gemini  born under a bad sign on June 3, 1968 in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ and currently residing in Eastport, Maine where I remain a very active local musician serving a wide variety of projects.  

Thank you for visiting this page.  I deeply appreciate your presence here and I sincerely hope you enjoy some of my music..." - Colie Brice
PS - I have just released my 33rd solo album entitled A Tone Meant

I am also currently attempting to curate what I consider to be some of my best songs and instrumental recordings so that I can more effectively direct folks to the music I sincerely hope will be heard.  In any case, here is a partial playlist that I hope you listen to before I die.."
