With a rotating roster of 70 artists, Scott Bradlee takes listeners on a magical journey back in time, reimagining popular contemporary songs with a jazz, doo-wop, blues, swing, ragtime twist. The concept and flawless execution has won him fans from around the globe and amassed a staggering 2 million subscribers on YouTube and 530 million views. The project has become a bona fide sensation and now is returning to Singapore, following 2015’s successful run.

 

 

In one such remake, Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered over 15.8 million views. Last year, Bradlee arranged Radiohead’s alt-rock hit “Creep” as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine.

 

 

Scott Bradlee’s rags to riches story reads like a Hollywood biopic and his meteroric rise to fame has taken the creative musician further than he could have ever imagined. “I posted the first video in 2009,” recalls Bradlee. “I was broke and living in Queens, NY. Seven years later, we’ve amassed 2 million subscribers, we’ve sold out shows across four continents and we’ve become a showcase for an incredible group of performers.”

 

The tour comes on the back of an epic 75 date sold European run, and sits betwen a 16-city tour of Australia and 45-city North American headlining tour. Be sure to grab your tickets quick, as they won’t last.
