Artist Biography

Yves Tumor, aka Sean Bowie, is an experimental R&B artist from Tennessee. They learned to play several instruments as a teenager, including the bass, guitar, and keyboard. They began making electronic music soon after that had an element of noise produced by using their computer’s built-in microphone. At age 20, Sean relocated to California where they became a part of the Los Angeles experimental music scene. In 2012, they met artist Mykki Blanco who took Sean on tour and connected them with the Dog Food label. Then Sean moved to Europe and began working on their project titled Yves Tumor which debuted in 2015 with the debut album When Man Fails You. Yves Tumor soon became a commercial success with later releases getting critical acclaim and making it on end-of-year lists. During the pandemic, they dove into hobbies including designing furniture and writing music.
