Created by Scott Bradlee, the rotating collective of Postmodern Jukebox has amassed more than 450 million YouTube views, 1.9 million subscribers, and topped iTunes and Billboard charts. Postmodern Jukebox takes your favorite Top 40 hits, throws them in a time machine, and re-imagines them in the style of classic musical eras. A torch-like ballad take on Radiohead’s alt-rock hit “Creep” (named one of People magazine’s “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015”), a doo-wop ditty of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” and a sad clown singing Lorde’s “Royals.”
Bradlee, the mastermind behind the group, has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots movement around the act. He continues to pick the songs, create the arrangements and shows, and puts together the performers – which includes some notable names alongside phenomenal “undiscovered” talent. The group releases a new video every week, each one shot in the casual environment of Bradlee’s living room where he can often be seen playing piano in the background.
