Pete Yorn (b. July 27, 1974) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He has been compared to Bruce Springsteen. He attended Montville High School in Montville, New Jersey, and was member of the Class of 1996 at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York.

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."
