THE HSA STORY
The Houston Songwriters Association (HSA) is a non-profit 501 (C3) organization serving the greater Houston area since 1989.
Originally started in Richmond, Texas and called Fort Bend Songwriters Association, the name was changed to Houston Fort Bend Songwriters Association to better reflect the area wide demographics of the members.
On January 1, 2008 it was changed to its present name of Houston Songwriters Association.
Our mission is to support and encourage the art and craft of songwriting, to provide resources and educational opportunities to songwriters, and to nurture a positive environment in which songwriters may fully develop their potential as songwriters. The group meets monthly to critique songs and showcase talent.
Songs presented at the monthly critique sessions may be entered in the Song of the Month Contest. There will be two songs chosen by web-based voting each month. After the October meeting web-based voting will choose, “Song of the Year”, "Collaboration Song of the Year" and “Songwriter of the Year” , with the results announced at the Annual December Party.
All ages, all musical styles and all levels of experience are invited! We welcome you to visit and make some new friends that share your interest in songwriting
