After traveling the globe for over a decade performing with world-renowned Alternative/Indie band, Mae, lead singer Dave Elkins has embarked on a new journey called Schematic Community. Schematic Community will be the ultimate social network for the creative mind. Providing a place to share, learn and interact, it allows creators and enthusiasts alike to share their passions and connect through open forums and online galleries. In short, Schematic is meant to be a microcosm within the music and art industry that relies on grassroots growth through community.

“With crowdfunding, social networking, and other tools, many emerging artists don’t actually need a loan. They just need a community to connect with, a long term business plan, and increased opportunities to succeed. This is what Schematic will become.” – Dave Elkins

If you are an artist with recorded or completed material and are looking for a label to partner with, Schematic is already taking submissions.

“We are nothing like other labels. We are a community that deserves something better than what most labels are providing. We will provide opportunity, growth, and reward.” – Dave Elkins

2. Located in the heart of Nashville, Schematic Studios is a fully functional recording studio equipped with a complete staff (audio engineer, producer, mixing engineer, editor, mastering engineer) aiming to assist artists in both the creation and funding of their art. Schematic is accepting submissions from artists interested in experimenting in a new style of management as well as seeking interns and talent scouts.

3. With a focus on community and grassroots movements, Schematic Management will help artists navigate the rapidly evolving music industry by understanding every aspect of their business while using the Schematic Community to promote new art.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
