Pete Yorn Biography
Pete Yorn is proof that fairy tales do come true. The 26-year-old drummer turned singer/songwriter landed a record deal after an impromptu performance of his song, "Life on a Chain," for a Columbia Records A&R guy. Yorn moved to Los Angeles, CA, in 2000 where he began writing music for film and television. Things heated up when Yorn scored for the 2000 Farrelly Brothers film "Me, Myself, & Irene," starring Jim Carrey. Among Yorn's accomplishments, his song "Strange Condition" also appears on the Elektra soundtrack to the film and Yorn's "Just Another" is featured on the compilation album for the WB television series Dawson's Creek, Songs From Dawson's Creek , Vol. 2. Yorn co-produced his 2001 solo debut album, Music for the Morning After (Columbia), with Brad Wood (Placebo, Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate) and R. Walt Vincent, while playing the bulk of the instruments himself. Kerry Smith All Music Guide
