Bio

Michael's path of creative rediscovery allows the tracks on "I Am Mountain" to exist in their own needs. Be it the dark east/west musical dichotomy of "The Beat of Her Heart" or the melodic hooks of "Long Way Off". From the galloping synths of "God And Country" to the descent from beauty into deconstruction in "Upside Down."

Michael shares vocalizations 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", or `70s-era evocation on the chorus of "Let It Go".

In this age of musical homogeneity, such diversity might be a danger sign. Gungor's deft manipulation of such moments piques interest not only in the immediacy of an individual song, but throughout the album's listening experience as a whole. That variety is most assuredly on purpose.

"I recently had the best meal of my life, an eight-course Japanese/sushi thing" Michael says, "and just the balance of the plates they'd bring and how they handled each of the flavors after the next to build to something. It was amazing."

"That's how I wanted to approach this record," he continues. "To have a palate cleanser when it's needed, something easy to go down, a breath for a second when things get too dark or heavy."

"Any good film, meal, symphony, album, whatever, has those kinds of moments that allow you to breathe."
