”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

n. 1. the result of combining the matchless and
unique genius of melodic drummer,
Jeremy "BEAN" Clemons with the sultry,
sassy, and incomparable sounds of
songbird Mavis "SWAN" Poole.

adj. 2. Soulful, jazzy, R&B-ish, gospelly,
funkish-kinda music, filled with soul-
stirring harmonies, rhythms, and grooves.
(see also “feel-good music")

v. 3. Vibing, groovin’, swangin’, preachin’
unyielding...

Drawn from all experiences, adult and childhood, St. Louis native Jeremy "BEAN" Clemons and North Carolina's finest Mavis "SWAN" Poole have created Soul Understated. The group can be described as more of a musical mothership than a band. The influences on the group's music are overwhelming and pleasurable all at once. Grabbing elements from all styles of music and bridging them under one roof is not an easy task, but these musicians have a strong grip on it. It is believed this blending of styles is the true concept of soul music: things internal generated to produce external beauty.

Somewhat of a dream band, Soul Understated features a diverse and eclectic mix of musical forces. These forces combined create a powerhouse band as well as a unique concept of music allowing each angle of the band to be independent yet part of a total musical thought. Having similar musical backgrounds and deriving elements from gospel, R&B, and popular music, SWAN and BEAN’s music clearly states where they’ve been, while simultaneously suggesting what may lie ahead. Their energy as composers, bandleaders, and performers will only make you want to know and grow with them in every way. Soul Understated has proven to be a true reflection of like-minded individuals who share common goals and desires in life and music.

As these two musicians describe their group, “The passion and drive of our music comes from a sincere longing to encourage and inspire people from all lifestyles, while maintaining the danceable element and groove."
