Genre titles such as “Pop”, “Folk” and “Alternative” are meant to give a listener an idea of what to expect and how to group music together. But, for the musical collective, Gungor it is not that simple. According to Michael Gungor, the namesake, producer, and leader of the collective, the band’s music is all very purposeful and full of subtle meaning. Michael states, “Music doesn’t have to fit the mold to move people’s hearts, and at the end of the day, that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to make honest music that opens people’s hearts.”
It’s not so much an attempt to directly defy the rules of modern music making as much as it’s simply the honest musical response of the Denver-based group that sees the world as a beautifully complicated place. Multiple Grammy® nominations, magazine covers and even a few “Album of the Year” declarations for 2010’s Beautiful Things, proves that listeners are longing for excellent and authentic music, whether it fits the norm or not. This is a group that believes listeners are intelligent enough to appreciate lyrical metaphor and allegory along with intricate time signatures and somewhat uncommonly paired instruments in pop or rock music.
