New Jersey native Pete Yorn has taken a somewhat unusual route to success. Shortly after graduating from Syracuse University in 2000, he moved to Los Angeles and began scoring films and television while slowly building a following through small, local performances. Within the year he'd landed the job of scoring The Farrely Brother's Me, Myself, & Irene. The film's success proved to be Yorn's breakthrough, and with his song "Strange Conditions" appearing in the film, he suddenly found himself an audience eager for more of his earnest and hopeful take on alternative pop/rock. In the decade since, Yorn has proved himself a talent to be reckoned with, mastering multiple instruments, touring the world, and releasing four studio albums. His latest, Back and Forth, is released in June.
