The CEO and founder of Make It Big Entertainment, David Schumacher has had and continues to navigate a lustrous career in the entertainment industry that spans more than 30 years. His evolution began with his immersion and investment in entertainment venues and night club establishments for over 15 years. It is this interest, growing knowledge and intimate involvement in his night clubs (Bogart’s and KLUB CHAOS among others) that ultimately led to his discovery and awakening of his passion for music composition and production.
As providence would have it, David has now been writing and producing music for over 15 years. Among his successful business ventures, his most significant inspirations are derived from his relationship with God and his unique ability to write and produce music of various genres. Some of the genres are Christian-Country, Country-Pop, and Rock. Source Magazine has credited him with writing over 11 top 20 Christian Country hits. David has also produced music videos and Broadway-like shows with a musical cast. David has partnered with the legendary Mike Flanders and is currently building a strong roster of artists. David brings a unique sense of creativity and paints with a vast sonic canvas, which drives him for constant success within the walls of MIB.
Schumacher has lead MIB Entertainment to sign national acts such as Jared Hill, who currently has an album in the works & material at major radio.

His production credits include Josh Arnold, Nik Phillips, Jill King, Garrison Starr, and American Idol Semi-Finalist Siobhan Magnus and Multi-Platinum selling artist Nikki Webster to name a few.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s Flanders achieved acclaim in his native Australian market; first as a staff song- writer with Warner/Chappell Music, then as a producer for Alternative and Pop acts in Australia. He received ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association) recognition for his work with the Australian pop artist Chaise, producing a string of hit singles that spawned a number one hit song, Only Be Me.

Flanders relocated to Nashville in February 2007, opening Pacific International Music and had since completed 50 plus projects in the space of 5 years, producing 19 Hot 30 Country singles, 4 of which made it to the #1 position.
Flanders' trademarks as a producer have been his experimental and ‘hook heavy’ approach to creating organic-sounding records. He is known for his involvement in a project from conception through to the finished product. 3 records with artists' Coles Whalen, Jill King and Mitzi Dawn cemented his status in the Americana and Alt Country scene. In 2010, American Idol Siobhan Magnus began a series of writing and recording sessions under the direction of Flanders and his team, resulting in her first album Moonbaby, which was released in 2012. Flanders then finished writing and producing a record for multi-platinum pop star Nikki Webster in 2014.
Flanders has multiple Film and Television credits scoring scenes for indie thriller Deceived, directed by Sevier Crespo. He also was composer on current Daniel Baldwin film WISDOM (to know the difference) which won 14 best film awards at the Manhattan/San Antonio/Long Beach/Burbank & other Film Festivals. Flanders took out Best Song. "WISDOM" title track for film co-written with Siobhan Magnus (American Idol) at Manhattan & Long Beach festivals, was released as a single.
