Cody Qualls

Cody Qualls is an internationally recognized vocalist from Louisville, CO.  Alongside his solo endeavors, Cody currently composes and tours as a lead tenor with the world-renowned rock-a cappella ensemble, Face Vocal Band.  Face recently appeared at Red Rocks amphitheater as the first vocal band in history to ever headline the historic venue.  A multi-award winning songwriter, Qualls co-wrote the title track of Face’s studio album “Big Time” which set Red Rocks sales records for most albums sold in a single evening.   His 2018 urban/pop/dance release “Back and Forth” is currently played on Lifetime Fitness’ setlists for several of their most popular dance-fitness offerings in the US. 
Westword Magazine reviews Qualls as “A voice that alternates between a feathery near falsetto and a Bible Belt bellow that’s beefy enough to make Meatloaf drool.”  Cody has been bestowed the honors of “Track of the Year” by the Recorded A cappella Review Board for “How Was the Show Last Night” and took 1st place in the Great American Song Contest with his song “Focus On Your Rap Game.”  His pop music can currently be heard on 93.3 FM KTCL and he has appeared twice at Fiddlers Green Amphitheater as a part of KTCL’s “Big Gig” concert series.  Eddie Kramer (producer to The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Kiss, Matchbox 20 and Carlos Santana) told the Denver Post, “I love Cody, I love the material, but most of all I love the attitude.”  
Qualls has shared the stage and been booked as direct support (with Face Vocal Band) for Barenaked Ladies, Bon Jovi, Jay Leno, Boy George and Culture Club, Robin Thicke, Rick Springfield (Jessie’s Girl), The Wailers, Cracker, 38 Special, The Manhattan Transfer, Clint Eastwood and many, many more.  As a soloist, Qualls has released multiple pop and rock albums and has appeared on stage and taught educational clinics with Broadway stars such as Alex Gemignani (Les Miserables, Sweeny Todd), Nancy Anderson (Kiss Me Kate, A Class Act), and Lawrence Street (Urine Town, South Pacific).  Additionally, he has contracted with Six Flags Theme Parks and entertains as an emcee for private ceremonies at the national level. 
As the director of the Face Academy of Music, he has been teaching private voice for more than a fifteen years.  Qualls encourages his students to sing from a feeling place; becoming multidimensional singers through the education of art song, musical theater, pop, rock, a cappella and country music.  More info at codyqualls.com.


Diana Dolan

Face Academy of Music’s Studio Manager and Admin.  If you need anything, Diana is there to help you.

Diana has an extensive and widely varied background in music.  Her father was an accomplished self-taught tenor who passed on his love of music to his children.  At the age of seven, Diana started learning the guitar and later explored the violin, saxophone, flute, dulcimer, clarinet, organ, and ultimately electric and standard piano.  She wrote her first song at the age of 11 and continues to write.  Diana studied jazz and classical piano with Rob Mullins and Nick Busheff, and was recognized by Neil Bridge for her unique chord voicing and comping style.

Diana is also an accomplished vocalist with a background in multiple styles ranging from classical/opera, pop, rock, and jazz.  She has performed with multiple ensembles, cover bands (The Fabulous Five, and Mere Image), original bands (The Moles, and Daffodil Grill), and the veterinary parody band, Cold Steel – a group made up of veterinary surgeons, doctors, and technicians, and she has taught both piano and voice.  She currently sings with our own Coal Creek Community Chorus and Rock Choir Colorado, and she is both a low alto and a high soprano with Meadowlark, an all female a cappella group in Boulder.
