FACE is an Alternative Christian Rock band with a sound that is new and unique. The band is based in South Alabama about 40 miles from Pensacola, Florida. Originally known as Soul Society the group got its start as an entrant in a college talent competition. The members were all attending the same college and knew each other from the different church bands and groups that they had played with separately. As a mix of Methodist, Baptist, and Assembly of God church members, the group came together with a blend of different styles of worship and musical backgrounds, from acoustic to Christian metal, which they combine to create their own unique sound. FACE initially started out playing covers from Third Day, Kutless, and Jeremy Camp and is still asked to play them from time to time. Today they have their own repertoire of music which generates an enthusiastic reaction from any crowd. They also enjoy playing standard praise and worship music in their own style. They went on to win their initial college talent competition and the regional competition that followed. For a video of their first ever performance, covering "Consuming Fire" by Third Day, which won the competition, you can view the video on Youtube.com at Consuming Fire (Third Day) by Soul Society. The band changed its name to FACE in 2009 in order to make a statement which reflects their values. The acronym FACE stands for Following After Christ's Example, and is a testament to how the members feel about their style of youth ministry. Since its inception the response to this band has been nothing short of incredible and has helped change many lives for Christ. After only being together a year, the group has already played at many venues across the Southeastern United States. The band has been working with Leavell Studios near Tampa Florida and should be releasing their debut album in December 2009. FACE has just recently released their first single "Give Me Life", which is getting radio play in the Pensacola, FL and Birmingham, AL areas. Face is AJ Daugherty (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), George Arauz (drums, vocals), Brandon Chambers (bass guitar, vocals), Ty Rapture (lead guitar), and Andrew Sawyer (keyboards, guitar, vocals). All the members of FACE would like to thank God for all he has done and continues to do in their lives. The group would also like to thank everyone who has supported them thus far in their ministry and helped it grow.
