USA Today premiered the single last week and raved, that it “…boasts the earnest lyrics and familiar yet challenging melodies associated with Mae…”
After a very successful decade fronting the beloved indie-powerhouse Mae, Dave Elkins packed his bags and relocated to Nashville for the start of something new. With four LP’s, three EP’s, and over half a million album sales under his belt worldwide, Elkins longed to refine his approach to making records, to experiment with the unknown. The result emerged under the moniker Schematic, and in the form of a brilliant and breathtakingly complex record, “Color (n.) Inside The Lines”.
