Meet The Faces

Kurtis Powers, Host and Founder, Bio Image for the Face Radio BK

Host/Producer

Kurtis Powers

Kurtis Powers, founder of The Face Radio, has a passion for music, both old and new, with a vinyl collection to match. A modernist at heart, Kurtis enthusiastically seeks to blur the boundaries between vintage and modern. Add the gift of gab, and it’s only fitting that Kurtis would host a radio show to share his passion for music with you. You can also find Kurtis hosting and co-hosting nights around NYC.

Co-Host

Ryan ‘Lord’ Thomas

Lord Thomas, a long time DJ in the Norfolk & Richmond Virginia scenes, can often be found at The Face. He has a love for all things 60s, and quite a collection of records. When Ryan’s not one of the faces, The Lord is managing his own podcast or spinning at one of his nights. He brings the more 60s Garage, PowerPop sound to the show in defiance of Kurtis’ love for Crossover, 2-step, and Disco. He’s one hell of a co-pilot.

Scott ‘Bjorn Late’ Birksted

The Bjorn keeps showing listeners of The Face that being ‘Bjorn Late’ is no excuse. Scott Birksted is a Canadian expat who spent a decade tearing up Ottawa with his Rocksteady and Soul DJ gigs before hitting the Brooklyn scene. While here, he was soaking up the New York groove, expanding his Mod leanings further into the ’70s and ’80s Crossover sounds of the Big Apple’s Disco dance floors. Very sadly for those of us at The Face, he has departed again, heading back to his motherland.
