“Familiar, but different.” That’s how listeners have best described Pat Foran’s highly-accessible, yet always-interesting blend of original rock tunes.
Hailing from Lambertville, NJ, on the eastern bank of the Delaware River, Pat knew from age 8 that he wanted to be a songwriter. A lead guitarist by trade, Pat’s passion for songwriting led him to pursue a higher appreciation of the art form at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where he studied jazz and contemporary music theory.
Pat continued his studies at Trenton State College, Trenton, NJ and studied classical guitar and voice. There, a professor encouraged Pat to develop his vocal instrument to become a dual musical threat. This led Pat to new heights, helping him develop into a singer who can sing with low-down, bluesy grit and power pop brightness with equal, impressive ease.

There, a professor encouraged Pat to develop his vocal instrument to become a dual musical threat. This led Pat to new heights, helping him develop into a singer who can sing with low-down, bluesy grit and power pop brightness with equal, impressive ease.
After one year at Trenton State College (now TCNJ), Pat pursued jazz guitar studies with guitar legend Joe Federico of Philadelphia, developing his guitar technique with jazz studies and classical pick-style of the Federico protégé Dennis Sandole, who wrote ‘Guitar Lore,‘ documenting the famed ‘Dennis Sandole Method’ high-level guitar technique.
While performing throughout the NJ, PA, NY region Pat found a music mentor in award winning studio musician, singer and teacher, Ann Ruckert, of New York City. Focusing on performance and songwriting, Ann’s influence continues to guide Pat on his musical journey to this day.
Changing priorities took Pat elsewhere – and away from music – in his personal and professional life. That was until 2013, when Pat came back into the fold with “Foran Policy,” a full-length effort with relatable themes that dig deep into the nuances of everyday life. The collection entices listeners with its everyday subject matter and pop rock sensibility, before taking them to unexpected sonic destinations, making for an enjoyable ride the whole way through.
Since the release of “Foran Policy,” Pat has become one of the foremost members of his regional musical community by establishing the Pat Foran Showcase, a weekly artist spotlight at Havana New Hope (New Hope, PA). Nestled firmly at the crossroads of Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, the Pat Foran Showcase provides regional performers with a platform to reach a broader audience, and has become an integral part of eastern Pennsylvania’s vibrant, growing music scene.
In August 2017, Pat began working to achieve television and film placements with renowned Los Angeles-based A&R consultant Rob Figarola whose roster of early recognitions includes Grammy-winning industry giants Imagine Dragons, Childish Gambino, Macklemore, X Ambassadors, and more. Figarola owns and operates UnsignedDaily.com, a premier new music discovery website that identifies and develops unsigned artists.
Pat is hard at work on a follow-up to “Foran Policy,” with new singles slated for release throughout 2018. The new material will incorporate more electric guitar than previous efforts, helping Pat to expand his creative horizons, while remaining true to his acoustic songwriting roots.
