Soul Understated is among the most dynamically talented discoveries in music since the Motown era. The brilliance of their sound lies in combining a sultry vocalist (Mavis ‘SWAN’ Poole), a melodic drummer (Jeremy ‘BEAN’ Clemons), and a mothership of all-star musicians. With musical sensibilities that include jazz, soul, funk, gospel, and hip hop, the influences on their sound are as varied and timeless as the music they create. The final product embodies the rich melodies of Earth, Wind & Fire; the enchanting tones of Ella Fitzgerald; the down-deep soul of Donny Hathaway; and the exhilarating swing of Count Basie, with a hint of hip hop all infused into one harmonious body. Anyone who seeks bona fide musicianship is sure to find something that pleases the musical appetite.



“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.” - Divastation.com

In 2008, after many years of performing with various musicians, St. Louis native Jeremy ‘BEAN’ Clemons and North Carolina’s finest, Mavis ‘SWAN’ Poole, created Soul Understated. Since then, they have appeared at venues across the US, toured Russia, and collaborated with artists such as Nicholas Payton, Marc Cary, DJ Mikeflo, and Brian Jackson.

“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.“ - Soul Understated

Soul Understated is set to release their debut album in Summer 2014.
