Last Minute Liturgist Events

Some of you are aware that Gungor is part of starting a collective of artists called The Liturgists that exist to make thoughtful, beautiful, hopeful, and evocative liturgical art. Well, we want to try something kind of crazy, and we would like to invite you guys to participate in this with us. We are going to hold two last minute free events in Nashville and New York City to try some of this liturgical material out. They will be Liturgist “beta” events if you will. Gungor, The Br...

CityBeat Review

Dynamic Denver-based Indie Folk collective Gungor is a perfect example of why modern Americana doesn’t appear to be headed in the same faddish direction as, say, the Ska or Swing revivals of yesteryear.

Questioning beliefs about life and faith he'd long held, Gungor says he found himself “...

Denver Westword Review

Based on the layered arena-rock peak of the title track of Gungor's I Am Mountain, which opens the album, you'd think this was a radio-friendly pop effort. And while there certainly are some vibrant pop melodies to be found, the overall aesthetic is far more cinematic in scope. The arrangements and instrumentation are intelligent and interesting throughout, particularly the pure percussive ear candy of tracks like "Beat of My Heart," which effectively conjures the spirit of Dead Can Dance, and t...
