Writing Sessions America (WSAATL) is a membership based organization of music enthusiasts that focuses on development, professionalism, and relationships. Although we are a national brand, Writing Sessions America is based in Atlanta. Our focus is educating our members about music first. Our initiative is to provide an environment of music business development and education that creates business opportunities and fosters professional growth. Our concentration is music excellence in the R&B, Soul, Gospel, Rock and Pop genres. We host Live Radio songwriter meet and greets, songwriting boot camps, educational conference calls, and networking mixers. Writing Sessions America’s goal is to be the ultimate resource for new and established singers and songwriters. We believe you may be great alone, but we are better together.

The organization was created by Kevin Shine, a internationally-recognized Executive A&R Consultant who has assisted in the early development of artists like Kanye West, Da Internz and Kevin Shek’spere Briggs. As an A&R Consultant, Mr. Shine has contributed his skills on R&B singer, R. Kelly’s Grammy nominated “Untitled” album, was affective in securing a major record deal for Jive Records artist Jacob Latimore and recently worked with Grammy Award winning gospel singers Ann Nesby and Kim Burrell. Kevin Shine understands the inner-workings of business management in the music industry and is passionate about sharing this knowledge with others. He has used Writing Sessions America as a vehicle to do just that through networking mixers, seminars, panels, bootcamps, and workshops. We invite you to become a member.
