Preparing for next steps

Although “Hard 2 Love” only debuted about 10 months ago, Brice is hard at work on the follow-up. He has a tentative title — “I Don't Dance” — although he doesn't expect to release it until at least a year from now.

“I'm already deep into it ... writing, putting songs together and figuring out an album to make it a full album and then dwindling down songs 'cause I've already got too many,” he said.

“I'm a little more patient in the recording process. ... I've really gone in and even made work tapes for building tracks around and, like then going in and putting a band on it and then going back. I mean, just really taking the time to not just settle with a part that's kind of cool, like really think about it and dig in and have an open mind to change anything and try anything. And it's really making a difference, I think.”

The right woman also makes a difference. In April, Brice plans to marry his fiancee, Sara Reevely, with whom he has a son, Takoda, 4, and take some time off with his family. He included both their voices on “Hard 2 Love,” with his bride-to-be featured on “See About a Girl” and their boy on album closer “One More Day.”

“Takoda, you know, he's my whole life, and I can't wait to get home to him. You know, it's like I used to get on the road and I loved being on the road, I didn't care if I came home, but now I can't wait to get home,” he said. “I'm just looking forward to having that month kind of off. It's exciting. I wish I was married already. I'm ready. ... Once you're ready, you're ready.”

The hit-making balladeer expects his upcoming nuptials and honeymoon to provide ample material for future love songs.

“Oh, don't you worry. They're coming,” he said with a laugh.
