I'm an award-winning pianist & composer working across genres including jazz, folk, blues, country, soul, pop and rock. If you're after lush harmonies & funky rhythms played with great piano and keyboard sounds then I'd love to work with you.
Hey I'm Sean Foran, a pianist/composer based in Brisbane, Australia. I've been a professional musician for 20 years, mostly working across genres of modern jazz, folk and rock/pop.
I write and record piano & keyboards in my home studio where I've got a fantastic KAWAI GL40 grand piano... I'm a Kawai endorsed artist, and this piano sounds amazing. I also record on a vintage Fender Rhodes Electric piano, Mark 1 73 plus use a range of keyboard sounds on Logic Pro X.
- Composition - Original Music composed for your project. I've worked with dance companies, theatre companies, film-makers, and production music companies. All you need to do is send me the video, or the brief and I'll create some piano/keyboard-driven music to suit.
Full mix and master is included, so the track will be ready to sync with your final project.
-Session recording - I'll record some killer piano or keyboard parts for your track. I've done countless sessions for artists all around Australia, plus recorded a heap of my own music with various groups. I love recording, and I'm able to bring a deep knowledge of contemporary music to the performance
For your track I just need the mp3 or wav file. If you've recorded to a click, or have the BPM, that's even better, but not essential. Also, a chord chart or anything of that nature is helpful, but again, only if you've got it :)

1 ReviewsEndorse Sean Foran
Sean is a fantastic piano player. I needed him to write a Rhodes piano part for my jazz-inspired pop song, which already had a finished piano part. Sean’s performance was harmonically brilliant, yet subtle (exactly what I asked for). Sean worked quickly, communicated very well, and delivered his tracks on time. I highly recommend him if you need a skilled, experienced, versatile pianist/keyboard player for your project.
Interview with Sean Foran

A: Kawai grand piano Fender Rhodes Critter & Guitari Organelle AKG headphones Macbook pro
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been a professional musician for over 20 years. I've studied a Bachelor of Music, Master of Arts in Jazz Performance and a Doctor of Musical Arts (Composition). I've studied in Australia, the UK and privately through Canada and Europe. My career has taken me all over the world with tours, albums, collaborations... have a peek at my website - www.seanforanmusic.info - for more detail.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It's quite mixed.. I'll usually start out at the piano, improvising ideas and then will move back and forth between Logic, the piano, and various keyboards to craft the ideas I'm hearing
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually craft piano/keyboard parts for songs - clients come with a track that needs some more harmonic, rhythmic and textural interest... and that's what I create. Sometimes people are after a custom track for their project, and I create that to suite the style and budget.
