Lowland Hum The work of wife-and-husband team Lauren and Daniel Goans, Lowland Hum are an indie folk duo based in Charlottesville, Virginia whose winsome harmonies, organic approach, and poetic songwriting earned them acclaim following the 2013 release of their debut album Native Air. Over the subsequent years, the pair continued to build a strong grassroots following with heavy touring and independent releases like 2017's Thin and 2019's Glyphonic. Recording in a converted barn on their property, Lowland Hum remained prolific into the next decade, offering up a reimagining of Peter Gabriel's classic So album titled So Low along with a new all-original album, At Home, in 2021.
The band has spent the past eleven years touring the nation, sharing stages with indie songcraft mainstays such as Josh Ritter and Jesca Hoop, and pop folk darlings like The Oh Hellos and Penny and Sparrow among others. Along the way they’ve carved out a name for themselves as a DIY power pair and one stop shop, arranging, producing and recording their own original songs and pairing their work with Lauren’s distinct aesthetic as a visual artist, designer and video collage filmmaker. In addition to his work with Lowland Hum, Daniel produces recordings for other artists and makes improvisational instrumental music under the name Windshook.
When Lowland Hum is not on the road performing, they can be found fumbling through early parenthood, gardening and recording new material in the barn-turned-studio at their rural homestead outside Charlottesville, Virginia.
