“Sleigh Ride” Postmodern Jukebox Style

Fresh off their Christmas special on YouTube, Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox presents a brand new jazz version of “Sleigh Ride” starring Demi Remick. She’s cheery, delightful, whimsical, playful, and a superbly entertaining tap dancer. You could literally watch her for hours. Plus Scott’s piano playing is always grand.

If you’re looking for a little extra holiday cheer, this lovely video makes a joyous watch, and the song itself is worth adding to your Christmas playlist on iTunes.

Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with PMJ!

Postmodern Jukebox

Watch what happens when today’s biggest hits meet Old Hollywood glam! Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox successfully mixes well-known tunes like “Royals”, “Shake It Off”, “Creep” and “Sweet Child O’Mine” with a jazz-flavored syrup, resulting in all-new numbers with a swingin’ vintage sound. It’s like a grand trip to the retro times without ever leaving the present.

The regular artists chosen to collaborate with the band include a roster of American Idol stars like Haley Reinhart, Melinda Doolittle, Casey Abrams and Von Smith plus amazing vocalists like Ariana Savalas, Morgan James and Sara Niemietz. For new listeners, PMJ’s newly released compilation album The Essentials make the perfect introduction. Grab yours in a combo pack featuring an old-fashioned shirt. Or if you’re a vinyl collector, the vinyl version is also offered on the PMJ site.

Haley Reinhart’s “Better” Music Video Is Released

Queen Haley Reinhart has done it again, and she’s even better and bolder with the music video release of her brand new single, a lead-up to her sophomore album Better!

The enormously gifted recording artist and songwriter who has the voice of a goddess started her career on American Idol back in 2011 and went on to release her retrofabulous debut record Listen Up! with Interscope Records before taking over the jazz and music scene with her various Postmodern Jukebox collaborations plus lush vintage cover of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, which was used on a recent Extra Gum commercial. She has also guested on hit CW show 90210 and now dabbles in voice acting on the Netflix comedy F is For Family, where she plays little Bill Murphy.

On the day of its release, “Better” became an instant trending topic on Twitter with Haley’s fiercely loyal fans – the unbreakable Haliens – pushing to promote the music video with their power tweets. Hashtag: #HaleyReinhartBetterVideo. The UK pop sound as well as empowering message and catchy chorus in the song makes it radio-worthy, and the fiery music video takes it to another level.

“Better” is more than just a single. It’s a movement, and Haley Reinhart is inviting the world to listen up.

Get the “Better” album on iTunes now and visit Haley Reinhart’s official site to be a part of the Haliens.
