Scott Bradlee Career
In looking for creative inspiration, Bradlee began reworking popular music as an exercise. In 2009, he released Hello My Ragtime 80s, which incorporated ragtime-style piano into popular music from the 1980s. After playing and experimenting on stage at his regular gig at Robert Restaurant, he released the compilation Mashups by Candlelight. Bradlee gained popularity in 2012 with A Motown Tribute to Nickelback, a collaboration with local musicians which arranged Nickelback’s songs in the style of 1960s style R&B music.
In 2013, Bradlee began to work more seriously on forming Postmodern Jukebox, a rotating group of musicians producing covers of pop songs in alternate styles, including jazz, ragtime, and swing. The group burst onto the public radar with their doo-wop cover of Miley Cyrus’s We Can’t Stop, featuring Robyn Adele Anderson and guest artists, The Tee-Tones. As the viral surge grew, Bradlee was interviewed by news outlets such as NPR and also performed live on Good Morning America and Fuse. The group visited Cosmopolitan magazine’s New York office for a year-end review of their work and popular songs from the year.
Several artists have publicly noted their appreciation for the group’s work. Among the group’s prominent guest musicians are Dave Koz, who collaborated with them in jazz covers of Careless Whisper and the Game of Thrones theme music, and Niia, who joined them for a space jazz version of The End of the World”. Postmodern Jukebox’s October 2013 collaboration with Puddles Pity Party on a cover of Lorde’s Royals generated particularly strong interest; as of September 2014, this video remained the second most popular on Bradlee’s YouTube channel with over 15.1 million hits.
In late 2014 to 2015, Postmodern Jukebox toured extensively through America and Europe with its rotating cast of musical contributors. On Feb. 24th, Postmodern Jukebox co-headlined the Dubai Jazz Festival, alongside Sting, Toto, Chris Botti, and David Gray. On February 26, the band kicked off a 75-date international tour at Vicar Street in Dublin, Ireland, wrapping on June 4 in Ankara, Turkey.
In early February 2016, Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox covered the late David Bowie’s classic song “Heroes” in honor of World Cancer Day – featuring vocals by Nicole Atkins. The track became one of his most popular arrangements to date and was sold on iTunes to earn money for the Cancer Research Institute. In 2016, Heineken announced their global partnership with Formula One racing management and in September released its first “If You Drive, Never Drink” campaign commercial featuring Sir Jackie Stewart which featured Bradlee’s cover of Heroes as the soundtrack.
On June 12, 2018, Scott Bradlee released his first book, a memoir entitled ‘Outside The Jukebox: How I Turned My Vintage Music Obsession Into My Dream Gig. The book garnered rave reviews from artists such as Kristin Chenoweth and Mick Fleetwood, as well as features from Publishers Weekly, The Weekly Standard, and Billboard.
