  • Speaking to us about how his persona changes depending on his musical project, Foreman said, "For better, for worse, that's all I've got to offer is me. I've got nothing else. And I think there are other sides to myself - everyone has multiple layers - but I've been fortunate to have Fiction Family and the solo projects and the work with Switchfoot to be able to express myself in plenty of ways. So I've never felt the need to wear a mask."
