Yorn became a pop artist the old fashioned way. He played a song for an A&R guy and got signed to a major record label.
Pete Yorn earned monster popularity when another song he wrote was picked by the Farrelly brothers, known for their rather bizarre movie-making, for their Jim Carrey film, "Me, Myself & Irene." It was called "Strange Condition" and it became one of the biggest pop hits of 2001.
Yorn started as a drummer who also played guitar. In 1990, he was drumming for his band in a high school talent contest when someone suggested he sing the Replacements song, "Talent Show." That went over so well, a competing band asked him to sing Neil Young's "Rockin' In the Free World" with them. No word on who won the talent contest, but Pete Yorn was a singer-drummer-guitarist after that.
The New Jersey native writes personal music filled with hooks, which makes him the perfect major label pop star.
