Yan Wagner is a young French-American artist. He was born and still lives in Paris but made his first solo appearances during an extended stay in New York City in 2008-2009.
He writes and performs all his songs, merging electronic beats and sounds with a low and crooning voice. His influences span many genres and time frames, from Depeche Mode to D.A.F., from Prince to Tangerine Dream, from neo disco to early Detroit Techno… All these entrenched in a timeless Pop gesture.
In the past year, Wagner has been playing numerous shows in France and other major cities like London, New York and Paris, and supported bands such as : AIR (fifteen dates on their last LOVE 2 tour ), Goldfrapp, Midnight Juggernauts, Hercules & Love Affair
