Led by singer/songwriter Mavis ‘SWAN’ Poole and the powerful yet melodic drummer Jeremy ‘BEAN’ Clemons, Soul Understated is one of the rarest discoveries in music since Motown. The influences on their music are overwhelming and pleasurable all at once. With elements from EWF to Ella Fitzgerald, Donny Hathaway to Curtis Mayfield, and Sarah Vaughn to Count Basie, and even Hip-hop infused, their music spans across all genres.
“Soul Understated is a skillful ensemble, adeptly and seemingly
effortlessly weaving together soul, jazz, funk and gospel, like so many
threads in a tapestry, and Ms. Poole does not miss a beat, adding
scat and rap to the mix like the final spices in an excellent gumbo.”
Soul Understated’s new project showcases what they are known for, exquisite vocals and impeccable musicianship. “Songs In The Key Of Grease” is a set of songs that tell past and present life stories. Swan and Bean definitely have a story to tell, and they have brought it directly to you with their new EP. They are set to release their newest Single, “Wibble Wobble”, which features Washington DC natives, Marc Cary and ‘Mighty Moe’ Hagans.
