Lowland Hum

Minimal acoustic music from Charlottesville, Virginia, husband-wife team.

Lowland Hum is an art-folk band based in Charlottesville, Virginia made up of husband-wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans. The duo has toured extensively since the band's inception in 2013 to support their two full length albums and one EP, and both their live show and studio releases have garnered critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, the Washington Post, American Songwriter and others. Lowland Hum's songs have been described as poetic and evocative, and their arrangements minimal, hushed and dynamic. Their third full length album will be released in early 2017.

Looking forward to tonight in Greensboro, NC ( Resonate Greensboro ) and tomorrow in Charlottesville, VA ( The Southern Cafe and Music Hall )!! Photo: Eric Kelley Photography #thinreleasetour #newmusic #livemusic #hometownlove

THIS WEEK we get to play both our current hometown, and the town where we grew up!
THURSDAY, feb 16: Greensboro, NC Resonate Greensboro
FRIDAY, feb 17: Charlottesville, VA The Southern Cafe and Music Hall

There is nothing quite like a hometown release show, and the sweetness of sharing new songs with those who have faithfully had our backs.

We were honored by the thoughtfulness of this article about our new album in Whurk, a local VA arts and culture magazine.

whurk.org When trouble came knocking, these folk musicians took things back to the basics—just two voices, a guitar, and a summer in the attic.

Dressing rooms are fun! A huge thanks to all who came out last night in Richmond for Ritter at Modlin Center for the Arts . We are grateful for this weekend and all of the sweet encouragement. It has been a great celebration and release tour kickoff. Today we drive to #norfolkva for an in-studio with Hunter At Sunrise and WHRO . #backstage #dressingroom #albumrelease #newmusic #richmond #norfolk #virginiaisforlovers #thinalbum #thinalbumtour
