Yann started learning to play the violin very early. He was soon seduced by the post jazz improvization movement that was going on in France over the 90's and collaborated to many projects and recordings. It was around 2000 that he began to write songs, inspired by the strength he found in Gainsbourg or Nougaro's innovative works. He then left for India to learn what is called Carnatic Singing with Master Vittal Ramamurthy, and then went on discovering new sounds while travelling to the US, Brazil or Canada.

He then left for India to learn what is called Carnatic Singing with Master Vittal Ramamurthy, and then went on discovering new sounds while travelling to the US, Brazil or Canada. When he was back in France in 2003, he started working with renouned guitar player Jean-Paul Hervé and Raphael Poly on the double bass. The trio quickly gained awards and praise in festivals where their 'strange' way of making songs was surprising and original. That's when Yann realized he was on some sort of mystical quest through his songs which very often refer to god or the Bible. Some concerts where nearly trance-like experiments where songs like "America is Mine", "The Giant", "The Empire" or "The Last Breath" would last as long as 15 minutes with amazingly inspired violin or bass choruses which would captivate the audience. 2006 saw the release of the first album under the name Poncet : Celui qui dit qui est and the beginning of a French tour which is to go on to july 2007.
