A veteran of the New Jersey music scene for over 20 years having played shows at legendary venues like CBGBs, Maxwells, Webster Hall, and the Stone Pony and sharing stages with the likes of David Johansen, Dramarama, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, and Richard Barone, Poncelet is striking out solo to bring you a blend of moody, rich, and esoteric rock all his own.

“We look before and after And pine for what is not; Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught; Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.” — Percy Bysshe Shelley
