Gungor's Second Album 'Beautiful Things' Due In February

Dec 04 2009

Gungor will release 'Beautiful Things', a collection of songs birthed out of an honest journey of faith, on 16th February 2010. "This album is an expression of hope that God will make beautiful things out of the dust in our lives," explains band front man Michael Gungor. "That God will somehow use us, use our obedience and love, our feeble human effort, and build Himself a kingdom."

Formerly known as The Michael Gungor Band, the socially active, Denver-based foursome is comprised of Michael Gungor, his wife Lisa, as well as friends Brad Waller (guitar) and Josh Harvey (bass). Gungor hits the scene with a different perspective than most bands as the lead singer is perhaps best known for co-writing distinguished songs like 'Friend of God' and 'Say So' made famous by Israel Houghton.

The self-produced album's credits, which reflect a loose and varying lineup, include Gungor's wife Lisa on glockenspiel along with bandmates on horns, strings, banjos, a melodica, 'foot-stomping mayhem' and Gungor's now-signature toy piano.

Filled with unique instrumentation, the album features original songs such as 'The Earth is Yours', 'Dry Bones' and 'Call Me Out'. Israel Houghton even guests on a bass-driven romp called 'Heaven'.

'Beautiful Things' is the follow up to the band's 2008 debut album 'Ancient Skies'.
