ROMAN is the artist’s name for New York native Thomas Foschino. His debut Album “Own World (20 pages)” is a progressive work of reflection, growth and triumph over self. This multi-genre crossover album featuring hip-hop driven lyrical expression combined with rock and pop roots takes the listener on ROMAN’s journey.

Listen (here) to his recently released single “Mortality” featuring Ella Shreiner.
