Lowland Hum is a hush folk band from Charlottesville, VA comprised of married team, Lauren and Daniel Goans. Founders of the #supportquietmusic movement, and praised for their dynamic, minimalist arrangements, the two have been champions of quiet music in an era of extreme noise. The band has spent the majority of the last eight years performing across the United States & Europe, sharing stages with Josh Ritter, Penny & Sparrow, Jesca Hoop, The Oh Hellos and others along the way. Self-producing five full length albums and four eps, the prolific duo has garnered critical acclaim from NPR, the Washington Post, American Songwriter, Paste, Billboard, No Depression, and the Wall Street Journal. As Robin Hilton of All Songs Considered (NPR) put it, “if you love sublimely beautiful two-part harmonies, you’re not going to do better than this band.” In 2019 Lowland Hum launched Golden Hour, an immersive listening experience, with co-collaborators David Wax and Suz Slezak of the band David Wax Museum. The experience was featured on World Cafe in 2020.
Lowland Hum has become a staple on Spotify, Apple and Amazon playlists. Lowland Hum’s rendition of The Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” was recently placed on the feature film “Love Is Blind” starring Chloë Sevigny and Matthew Broderick. After converting a small barn on their property into a modest recording studio, the duo recorded their sixth album, a collection of songs written during quarantine, set to release in early 2021.
