Daniel Levi Goans

is a songwriter, performer and producer based in Charlottesville, VA.  He is in a band called Lowland Hum.  Between tours and working on the band's music, he produces records for other folks.

"Daniel approaches the studio as a place where a kind of transcendence can happen. He believes that when a group of artists are working together, the possibilities are limitless, and I've never met someone so driven and caring in his commitment to the artistic integrity of the project. He is an incredibly gifted producer whose ideas seem to tap into the very space in which the song was born."

(Kurt Schuler)


"Daniel treated our project with incredible care and attention, from pre-production all the way to the finished product. An organized thinker and worker, he made a concerted effort at fully digesting and internalizing the vision for the record we brought to him, and was able to provide creative and organizational input to help realize and enhance that vision. It's fair to say Locust Avenue wouldn't be what it is (and might not have been anything at all) without Daniel's steady hand guiding the process." 

(Guion Pratt of Nettles)

"Daniel is not only a talented musician, and composer, but an intuitive,and focused collaborator. He adds an excitement and energy to a process that, for me, can feel overwhelming and scary. I recorded my full length album with Daniel, and was amazed at his ability to stay organized, forward-moving, and positive throughout the entire experience. He offered endless ideas, and listened thoughtfully, and carefully to mine. He was very committed to making the vision I had for the album come to life.I feel very honored and grateful to have worked with him." 

(Caitlin Watkins)


"Over the past several years, I have had the opportunity to work with Daniel as a session guitarist, engineer, mixer, and co-producer. Daniel is one of the most creative people that I have ever met, and he always brings all of himself to a session while creating a space for the creativity of the artist or performer to flourish. He will fight for you to have a product that you will love for the rest of your life." 

(Edd Kerr)

"Daniel Levi Goans is a one man good cop/bad cop. Thankfully, he uses this natural tenacity and talent in service of justice rather than evil. Trust Daniel with your project. But bring some teeth along with you. He'll push you and your music towards the most demanding path: excellence. Of course, he's a nice guy and everything. I'm just saying...get ready to rumble in that studio. If Daniel has taught me anything, it's that art deserves a little more than we can give."
