Sure, some folks think New Jersey-bred, Cali-based singer-songwriter Pete Yorn is a dreamboat. But what few realize is how right they are and that, like a dreamboat, Yorn himself loves the water. Or at least he does in this submersive video for his sensitive ballad about bailing when it gets "too real" from his 2009 album "Back and Fourth."
We expect Yorn, now a decade into his recording career, to be digging into this tune and others like "Strange Condition" and "Life on a Chain" when he hits the stage at the House of Blues tonight.
