Be it traditional jazz standards or contemporary R&B, ragtime to classic rock, pianist Scott Bradlee has the uncanny ability to interpret any genre of music with brilliance and maturity. These skills, combined with a relentless creative drive and professional attitude, have made him a highly sought-after performer, arranger, and music director in New York City.
As a performer, he has provided elegant piano music for hundreds of events including weddings, cocktail hours, private parties, outdoor concerts, and cabarets all over the northeast. Venues that have hosted Scott have included the Ritz-Carlton, Eleven Madison, The Plaza Hotel, The Lambs Club, Top of the Rock, Metropolitan Room, Duane Park, Hartford Stage, The Bushnell, The Wadsworth Athenium, Theater Bar, as well as many other cultural establishments and concert halls. Scott can be seen weekly performing at Robert Restaurant at The Museum of Arts & Design in Columbus Circle.
As an arranger, his creative transformations of popular material can be heard in a variety of commercial settings, as well as on his own popular YouTube channel. His debut recording, "Hello, My Ragtime 80's" was featured on popular author Neil Gaiman's Twitter feed on several occasions, and his "Motown Tribute to Nickelback" received extensive press coverage in the Village Voice, the Huffington Post, and a number of other publications. His latest album, Mashups By Candlelight, offers a commentary on the somewhat arbitrary nature of musical "taste" by juxtaposing seemingly disparate pop culture themes against one another- all in the context of solo jazz piano. In October of 2012, Scott was a featured speaker at TEDx Orange Coast, where he unveiled his latest project, an interactive performance space called Emote CTRL ( www.emotectrl.com ).
As a music director, he has collaborated with a number of Broadway and Off-Broadway performers and writers, bringing his talents for musical adaptation to various staged works and cabarets. He currently serves as music director for Punchdrunk's acclaimed immersive theatre work, Sleep No More.
Scott's energy at the piano is matched only by his creativity and integral knowledge of the history of jazz and popular song. A quick-witted, outgoing personality, it is no small wonder that he is a natural performer.
