jasonbuicemusic My goodness what a great album. Really cool hearing so many familiar songs performed by Pete Yorn. Great voice, beautiful instrumentation, so much depth and familiarity. Listening with a big smile on my face. Favorite track: Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To).

privatejames55 At first I was worried that this album would not sound like a "Pete Yorn" album because it was covers. The worry was worthless because this fits in really well with his catalog. The highlight for me is the cover of Surfer Girl. He makes the song a heartbreaker. Favorite track: Surfer Girl.

schubertie Worth buying the album just for Pete's sublime version of More Than This.

about

PY on “PY Sings The Classics”...
Ah I’m so glad you found me. This here is that long awaited “covers” record I have threatened for so, so long. Seems as good a time as ever. A good time for some new musical distraction. As you know,  I’ve never been shy about celebrating my musical influences. I honor them and appreciate the fact that they have helped to inspire the style of music I create as my own. I have chosen to interpret and record this particular collection of songs for various reasons. Whether it was The Pixies “Here Comes Your Man” or The Stone Roses “Ten Storey Love Song”, these songs all have one thing in common....they all stopped me in my tracks upon first discovery, simply because I loved the way they made me FEEL. They compelled me to listen repetitively...almost compulsively over and over again. Sometimes it was just the sentiment in the lyrics of a song like Simon and Garfunkel's “I Am A Rock”, or maybe it was the hauntingly beautiful melody of the Roxy Music epic “More Than This”.  Either way, all of these songs resonated so deeply with me, they just made me want to sing along. They affected me emotionally, psychologically, and viscerally at one cosmic moment in time or another, and I carry a torch for them still. They helped me find daylight through the wilderness and allowed me to understand more about myself and the world. So with that in mind, I’m happy to share with you this interpretive full length album. I had the pleasure of making this record with one of my oldest and best friends, Marc “Doc” Dauer. And it was just pure fun...ya know, getting to make music with a friend. I hope you get as much joy from this album as we did when we were recording it. Big love to you all and thx for checking it out.
