"Hey y'all. Come on. Don'cha want some." (Want Some). I'm Lewis Brice - a singer and songwriter born and raised in the South. I'm a native from Sumter, SC where I grew up on gospel music and southern values with my family. I've always had an emotional connection to music and learned to play acoustic guitar and piano before I realized my true passion was singing and songwriting. "In a moment of clarity" (No Illusion), I moved to Nashville six years ago to pursue my dream of touring and performing full time. I've had the pleasure of opening for great performers and artists such as my brother, Lee Brice, in addition to Josh Thompson, Jerrod Niemann, Crossin' Dixson, Keith Anderson, Nick Stearns, and many more. My own genre is a "Southern pop rock with a Country Americana twist," which is no great surprise considering my influences growing up were quite varied across musical styles. I'm just an ordinary guy next door singing about an ordinary girl anywhere.”
