Passionate about Jesus, Grammy Award-nominees Michael and his band have garnered rave reviews for their original songs and liturgical post-rock style.

Michael, often drawing comparisons to Sufjan Stevens, Arcade Fire and Bon Iver, uses his skills as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer on I Am Mountain to kick off a journey of stories told, some personal, some allegorical, but all honest and forthright.

Setting aside his reliance on what he calls metaphysical constructs I'd known all my life, Gungor has tapped his considerable musical reserves for a song set simultaneously revelatory in its lyrical content, ambitious in its sonic scope and compelling in its approachability.

Michael shares vocalisations in Gungor with wife Lisa, and together they interact, counter-play and underscore each song's arc with precision and versatility, be it the plaintive whisper of Yesternite, the lost-then-found effect choices made on Wandering and 70s-era evocation on the chorus of Let It Go.
