Primary songwriter for Mae Dave Elkins released his solo album, Color (n.) Inside the Lines today under the name Schematic. He’s sold over half a million records, and he aims to continue his music career, releasing this LP in a number of formats, including the multicolored vinyl as a tie-in to his album cover.

Updated: Stream some new music instead!

He’s DIY-ing parts of the tour, too, so if you’d like to download some free flyers, print them and post them, have at it!

Please download, make copies, and pass out flyers in your town to help us spread the word. We will be rewarding you for your hard work with tickets to the show as well as limited Schematic merchandise. Anyone who can be at the show earlier than when doors open will get to make requests as I’ll be performing acoustically every night.
