    If you are a creative person, read this book. It has chapters about how to create an independent career, including managing perfectionism and how to find and nurture your audience. Terrific book. And, if you're a PMJ fan as I am, a fascinating look inside how they became a phenomen...

    I think I should just start off with saying that Postmodern Jukebox is the only reason I listen to (and am even familiar with) some songs. As I said last Christmas when suggesting them "It's the songs you like, in the styles I love. Who doesn't win?" I have always joked that I was bo...

    Outside the Jukebox by Scott Bradlee is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early June. Bradlee initially gained fame on YouTube for posting mashups between modern pop and vintage music styles before touring globally with performance groups. His easy, chill narration covers storie...

    While I was fairly certain I would enjoy this book when I ordered it, as I was already a fan of Mr. Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox, I wasn?t expecting to be quite so taken with it. Mr. Bradlee?s amiable personality comes through with every anecdote, sharing the bad with the good...

    This behind the scenes look at Postmodern Jukebox and its creator, Scott Bradlee offers the highlights (and lows) of Bradlee?s life and career in an easy-going, relaxed and often amusing memoir. Bradlee doesn?t delve deep into his private life or thoughts, but provides ample stor...

    By all appearances, Scott Bradlee and his ensemble cast of sheer talent and unbridled energy, Postmodern Jukebox, were an overnight success; but the real story is far more revealing and entertaining. ?Outside the Jukebox? is an intimate and insightful look into the unexpected and o...

    As a long time Postmodern Jukebox fan, I devoured this book. I loved hearing all the backstory of how one of my favorite artists--one I admire most for their creativity and uniqueness--came to be. Scott Bradlee is funny, honest, and self-deprecating throughout the book and downplays th...

    I've been a fan of PMJ ever since I heard their cover of We Can't Stop 2 years ago and almost every other song they released since then has been a hit for me. This book tells the story of PMJ's creator, Scott Bradlee from his early years up to now. It is a heartwarming and inspiring ta...

    As a fan of PMJ for a long time now, this book gives a lot of fascinating behind-the-scenes detail of their creation that I was fully unaware of. But you do not need to have ever even heard of Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox to appreciate his journey and hard-earned wisdom of how to...

    A Jazz version of Macklemore?s ?Thrift Shop?? Sure. Tap dancers? Of course. Flaming saxophone? Yes, please. A sad clown with a golden voice? Umm, Yeah! Scott Bradlee?s Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) is a musical company known around the world for their vintage covers of mainstream...

    Scott has a knack for storytelling (in addition to his skills as a musician, arranger, producer, etc.) so naturally I found myself smiling throughout reading Outside the Jukebox, unable to put the book down. The stories are captivating, entertaining, and informative. While I have no am...

    This book is not the normal kind of book that I like to read. To be honest I only purchased the book because there was a sale on the PMJ discography and you got a discount if you bought the book too. But I was pleasently surprised upon reading it. It was fascinating reading the history...

    I've enjoyed PMJ's music ever since Scott did his Ragtime 80s medley. It was nice learning about his life before PMJ and his struggles with wanting to practice the piano. I had no idea he experienced such difficulty with student loans before rerouting his career via YouTube. He also di...

    Extremely enjoyable if you are a fan of PMJ. Watching the videos he describes as I read added to my enjoyment. The book traces the origins and rise of PMJ and might provide some insight to marketing one?s art in a digital age. Not great literature, but a fun, quick summer book. ...

    This book is fabulous! I discovered Postmodern Jukebox a couple of years ago when my music teacher did a lesson based off of them. Afterwards, I went home and spent hours watching their videos and listening to their amazing music. As a jazz, rock, and pop piano player, it's great to se...

    I?ve seen PMJ live in Florida, France and Portugal, and when I thought I couldn?t get more inspired by this group, I got the chance to read this book! Beyond the amazing content in itself, it's like having a warm cup of coffee with Scott while he's sharing with you his long way to ...
