Singer/songwriter Pete Yorn has been playing music since the age of 9, when he taught himself how to play the drums and the guitar. Music has been a part of his life ever since. After playing music throughout high school and at Syracuse University, Yorn moved to the west coast and officially started his career in Los Angeles. The release of his first album, Musicforthemorningafter, helped him to gain international fame.
Nine years later, Pete Yorn is back with his sixth full-length album, an album he wanted to record so badly, he did it despite the fact that he was sick with the flu and his voice wasn’t perfect. You’ll understand why after one good listen. Pete Yorn, his latest album, is his most focused and mature album yet, both lyrically and musically. From recovering from a broken heart on “Precious Stone” to trying to understand that the only person he can change is himself on “Sans Fear”, Pete Yorn embraces hard life lessons and sets them to rock music that can get almost anyone to bop their head despite the melancholy messages.
