Michael and Lisa Gungor, through the Grammy-nominated musical collective known simply as Gungor, have achieved such a work in their latest album “I Am Mountain.” Setting aside reliance on what Michael called “metaphysical constructs I’d known all my life,” Gungor tapped their considerable musical reserves for a song set simultaneously revelatory in its lyrical content, ambitious in its sonic scope and compelling in its approachability. Finally given the opportunity to self-identify, Michael uses his skills as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer on the record to kick off a journey of stories told, some personal, some allegorical, but all honest and forthright. Michael shares vocalizations in Gungor with his wife Lisa, and together they interact, counter-play and underscore each song’s arc with precision and versatility.
