Artists of Our Times-- Michael Gungor

At the beginning of the year I didn't know who Michael Gungor was, but I had been singing his music for years.  The writer of FRIEND OF GOD has been contributing to the christian music scene for years and just now has come into his own with the publishing of two successful solo projects.

I have come to love Michael Gungor for one reason alone:  he's an artist that thinks deeply about the combination of words and music.  I will regularly play through my collections of his and discover another gem in his songs that I had never heard before.  Just a couple of weeks ago we were talking about The Church as family and I found his song  "SONG FOR MY FAMILY" to rouse thoughts and emotions that no other song would do for that topic and service.  His songs linger with you long after the song is over and they make you think.

I would highly recommend his albums and his music.  He's an artist for our times.
