Driver returned to Face in 2005 after touring for a year with Almost Recess from Washington, DC. With his amazing vocal range and intense musical arrangements, he is responsible for much of the raw power that Face fans love. He's been wowing audiences with his vocal chops since the second grade, and is a former president of University of Colorado's In the Buff. "I've heard and sung with a lot of different groups, but there is a special magic about Face. You have to see it and hear it to believe it." Driver has recently begun an apprenticeship to become a recording engineer at Sonic Audio Productions in Denver.
Forest Kelly has been the band's bass and crooner from the beginning, equally at home thumping the low notes as singing the silvery tones that make women melt. “It is awesome to make the stage rumble, the walls shake, and people actually to feel the bass. I don't consider myself a singer when I sing those low notes, but the foundation of Face. Then there's nothing like dropping the bass-line and sliding into a solo, piercing the air with the sweet stuff.” Forest, a Boulder native, is a Fairview High School alum who sang with Extreme Measures at the University of Colorado and fronted Fluorescent Echo, a Boulder 90's synth-pop band. http://www.forestkelly.com
Ben Lunstad's baritone voice ties the bass and tenors together and gives a distinct richness to the Face sound. He also has a history of founding award-winning vocal ensembles. After heeding his father's advice to “have something to fall back on if this singing thing doesn't work”, Ben received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry while pursuing singing to keep him “sane”. During that time, he co-founded St. Olaf College's Limestones, University of Colorado's Extreme Measures, and Face, all of which continue to thrive to this day. Ben also spends time arranging music for Face. “Arranging is all about picking the right songs and then making them unique. After a while, you learn what works. Besides, it's easier than biochemistry.”
Mark Megibow provides the heart-pounding beats for Face. Unlike many beat-box artists, he has a background in instrumental percussion, and has been playing real drums since the third grade. Mark has performed with ensembles ranging from symphony orchestras, to marching bands, loud obnoxious rock bands, and now Face. “I won't lie,” admits Mark, “vocal drumming is easier than instrumental drumming. Especially carrying the gear! It's more fun, too, because I'm not locked down behind the kit.” Mark got his music degree from Northwestern University, and when not on stage, leads seminars for teens on leadership, communication, and life skills.
One of Face's arrangers and songwriters, Stephen Ross brings a wealth of musical experience as well as blisteringly high tenor vocals to Face. Stephen started singing in the Colorado Children's Chorale in 4th grade and continued performing in choirs throughout high school. He received his degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis from the University of Colorado, where he founded the (now defunct) a cappella group BufferZone. He is currently the director of vocal music, and Fine Arts Department Chairperson at Skyline High School in Longmont, Colorado, where he began his career as an educator in 2003. Stephen enjoys spending time with his lovely wife Jenny and his two daughters.
Cody Qualls, has recently stepped back onto the stage with Face after a five year hiatus to explore other personal and professional avenues. Since his original departure with Face in 2007, he has been teaching private voice, acting, and songwriting as the director of the Whole Body Singing Studio. In addition, he has started a family with his beautiful wife, Marlana. Cody has been studying voice and performing professionally for two decades. As one of Face's primary lyricist and composers, his intention is to create songs that can help ignite a spark of inspiration, health and common ground. “My deepest desire is to write and sing from a place of substance and purpose. The opportunity to sing with Face again provides a space to nourish that desire. These men are truly remarkable musicians and human beings. The deep connection to each other is the foundation of the band and music. Really, what else is there?” www.wholebodysinging.com
