Schematic’s debut effort, “Color (n.) Inside The Lines”  was released last month on Spartan Records.

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.
