soul understated - songs in the key of grease

Soul Understated featuring Mavis “Swan” Poole is an exciting new “neo-soul/funk” group that melds elements of R&B, Jazz, Funk and Hip-Hop into a unique sound. Led by vocalist extraordinaire Mavis “Swan” Poole (Lauryn Hill, Prince), whose distinctive vocal sound recalls Erykah Badu and Esther Phillips, and drummer Jeremy “Bean” Clemons (who has performed with Gregory Porter, Burning Spear, Jennifer Holliday and more), Soul Understated delivers a beautifully performed organic sound with stellar musicianship. “Swan" has appeared in the HBO television series “Vinyl.”

Songs In The Key Of Grease, an E.P. featuring six original compositions, is Soul Understated’s first nationally-distributed release. The material ranges from the infectious funk of “Wibble Wobble” to the slinky Badu-esque neo-soul of “The Way I See” to the beautiful balladry of “Fantasy.”
