Lowland Hum's Lauren Plank Groans and Daniel Levi Groans are a married couple from Greensboro, N.C. After they got married, they released their debut album Native Air in 2013, and put out a self-titled follow-up this year.

Their marriage has influenced more than their lifestyle: Now, they both form the creative center of the group, with Lauren contributing to more of the songwriting on Lowland Hum. Together, they make haunting, honest songs that swell in triumphant harmony.
