Raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tumor started making music at age 17 as an outlet to “get away from his dull, conservative surroundings.” He taught himself to play drums, bass, guitar, and keyboards. Describing his experience growing up in Tennessee as unpleasant, he moved at age 20 to San Diego, and after college to Los Angeles, where he met Mykki Blanco in 2012, whom he later toured with for two and a half years throughout Europe and Asia.

Yves Tumor Career
Yves debuted his project in 2015 with an EP for Berlin’s experimental club label Janus and another one for Blanco’s label “Dogfood MG”. In the same year, he self-released his first Album “When Man Fails You”. In September 2016, Tumor signed with PAN Records and released his label debut, Serpent Music. He had worked on the album for three years after moving to Leipzig, Germany.
The album was recorded between Miami, Leipzig, Los Angeles, and Berlin. In Pitchfork’s review of the album, critic Andy Beta compared Tumor’s musical style to James Ferraro and Dean Blunt, and noted their use of “unsettling percussive loops and field recordings to create a mood as if lost in a strange urban landscape”.
In September 2017, Tumor released a compilation album titled Experiencing the Deposit of Faith for free. Later that week, it was revealed through a tour announcement that Tumor had signed to Warp Records. Following the announcement, he embarked on a tour with a new audiovisual show.
In September 2018, Tumor released his Warp debut, Safe in the Hands of Love, with no prior announcement. It was preceded by the singles “Noid” on July 24, “Licking an Orchid” featuring James K on August 29, and “Lifetime” on September 3. The album received universal acclaim from music critics. Pitchfork’s Jayson Greene stated in his review that the album “dwarfs everything the artist has released by several orders of magnitude. The leap is so audacious it’s disorienting.”
