About Coronation

  • Coronation is a trio consisting of long time Northwest musicians, Joshua Blanchard, Andy Brown & David LiaBraaten. Andy Brown cut his teeth with many bands, including Seattle space rock pioneers, Jessamine, and Southern Lord/Kranky recording artists Fontanelle. Joshua Blanchard played with synth-punks Point Line Plane and psychedelic folksters, Plants. This year saw the addition of David LiaBraaten, adding percussion & backup vocals. The band brings together elements of synth pop, Italian disco and up-tempo new romantic crooning into a tasty aural blend that's both fresh and familiar. While most dance music lives in the thrill of the moment, Coronation explores what happens the day after the party and divulges autobiographical tales of broken relationships, hangovers, and burning the candle at both ends.
