Other standouts include “How Do We Grow” and “Everyday Hero” and of course the 2022 breakout single “The Assignment” which charted on both Official U.S. Indie R&B Artist and European Music Charts and introduced Mavis to a wide appreciative international audience.


Crowned “Little Ella” by the late legendary trombonist Curtis Fuller, Award winning Vocal Musician MAVIS SWAN POOLE has generated quite a buzz on the international music scene. She is graced with an unrivaled brilliance of shattering genre barriers with her rich and smoky sound. Poole is known for being one of the first jazz/soul Vocalists to employ her ability to sing two or more notes simultaneously, or “Multiphonics”. A rare gift since childhood, which has remained with her even as a vocal surgery and sulcus survivor.

The late Al Jarreau summed it up best after her band (co-led with Jeremy BEAN Clemons), “Soul Understated” played at the Pittsburgh Jazz Festival in June 2015. “Listen, I was around with Coltrane and Miles. They wouldn’t have wanted to get on the stage after what y’all just did.” In truth, Queen Mavis can croon as sweetly as a bird, or wail and scat out fiery tones and improvised lines with the most confident instrumentalists.

Mavis Swan Poole has performed and shared the stage with the greats in most genres. To name a few, Lauryn Hill, 9th Wonder, PRINCE and NPG, Gladys Knight, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, Shirley Caesar, Dr. Billy Taylor, and The Wailers. While she has performed with other artists, she has mostly performed under her own name, and with her original music, proving a true Artist in her own right.

Mavis is a 2007 Magna Cum Laude graduate of North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. There, she was Classically trained, earning a BA in Music Education, as well as a BM in Music, with a concentration in Jazz Vocal Studies. In 2011, she received her MA in Music, with a concentration in Jazz Vocal Performance at QueensCollege in NYC. She also attended college for Psychology.

As an Educator, Mavis Swan Poole was a Vocal Jazz Adjunct Professor at North Carolina Central University and is currently a 6-12 grade Music Teacher at a prestigious charter school. Of course, she is still, and will always perform her own music around the world. She is a Vocal Coach that boasts teaching experience that spans over 20 years.
