Pete Yorn

New Jersey native Pete Yorn took a rather unique route to singer/songwriter acclaim, gaining his first big break by providing the score to a Farrelly Brothers film. Having graduated from Syracuse University several years prior, the 26-year-old pulled up stakes in 2000 and relocated to Los Angeles, CA, where he began writing music for film and television. Prospects increased when Yorn was recruited to score Me, Myself, & Irene, a Farrelly Brothers movie starring Jim Carrey. One of his own pop/rock numbers, "Strange Condition," appeared on the film's soundtrack and was subsequently released as a single, where it fared well on the modern rock charts and increased public demand for Yorn's songwriting.

After netting a record contract with Columbia, Yorn returned to the studio and co-produced his debut album, 2001's Musicforthemorningafter, with Brad Wood and R. Walt Vincent. He also played the bulk of the instruments himself. Yorn supported the album by touring for 18 months, enabled Musicforthemorningafter to go gold by April 2002. The following spring, he returned with the earnest Day I Forgot, which featured several contributions from R.E.M.'s Peter Buck (who had previously made a cameo on the single version of "Strange Condition"). A year later, Yorn issued his first live album, Live from New Jersey, a double-disc set that captured his late October performance at the Community Theater in Morristown, NJ.

For his third studio LP, Yorn enlisted collaborators such as the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and the Dixie Chicks' Martie Maguire and Natalie Maines to shape the sound of Nightcrawler. Produced by Butch Walker, the album arrived in August 2006 and replaced Yorn's folky leanings with a more rock-oriented foundation. Another noted producer, Bright Eyes alum Mike Mogis, was enlisted to helm Pete Yorn's next record. The resulting Back and Fourth was recorded in Omaha, NE, and released in 2009, prefaced by the lead single "Don't Wanna Cry." Yorn returned later that year with another album, this one recorded alongside actress/vocalist Scarlett Johansson and inspired by the famed duets of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot. Although the project was finished several years prior, Break Up didn't see the light of day until September 2009, after several of Yorn's friends urged him to issue the material. In 2010, Yorn released his self-titled fifth studio solo album featuring production from the Pixies' Frank Black. ~ Andrew Leahey & Kerry L. Smith

Pete, wherever did you go? You've no idea how you saw me through the darkest of times, the brightest days of redemption, and now back to dark times, but now homeless. Now that I am working again, bouncing back, Pete, won't you do the same for yourself and the fans you had in the first decade of the new millennium? I won't give up, you shouldn't either. Break on through with another electrifying release like you did with musicforthem o r n i n g a f t e r - - t h e crappy music industry of today needs more like

I'm reading Pete Yorn's bio on Pandora and there's no mention of "Life on a Chain". "Life on a Chain" is far and away his best single to date. Curious...

Pete Yorn is the best, I saw him in concert he was great I hope he continues to make new albums. His music is so relaxing and believe it or not a lot of people have not heard of him.

Yorn achieves something other artists dream of: complex pop music that holds up to repeated listenings and keeps growing on you. MorningAfter is one of the best albums of the last 10 years.

Pete Yorn Is Huge. His lyrics have helped me in so many ways to just get through and be who i am. if you listen close you hear the soul of a senstive great genuine person being poured out and focused i can relate cause i'm definately not him, im no where near as good as him. i cant even play the guitar, i just write lyrics, but i'm a personality simalair to his in a younger day and age. I wish every Day That i had Been at that show in jersey in 2003.

ha ha Pete Yorn..where did you go? I thought you'd be big..you just made me look dumb by being obsessed with you for like a month and then you fell of the face of the earth.

super live. the venue was small and the concert he gave was forever long and included HIS own favorite songs by other artists (the Smiths, etc). it was laid-back AND loud; one worth listening to!
