From this vision, Tammie & her husband, Lance, co-creators of the Artist Management Agency, WieRok Entertainment, launched the event in their recording studios in the Nashville suburb in February of 2020. Initially as a single monthly event to just write songs, the community continues to thrive and has evolved to THREE monthly events. Now supported by staff from the Gospel Music Association and other industry professionals from Management Agencies, Record Labels, and Music Publishers, Writes & Bites now attracts Major Artists, Labels and Sync Producers seeking something fresh and the opportunity to connect with and support the next generation of potential hit makers.
The “OG” Event, that’s generally on the 2nd Tuesday night of each month, tends to be made up of folks that have been with us for years and have become our core. Also, another night-time event, usually the week following OG, the freshman group titled Writes & Bites “In-Session” tends to be newer members to the Community that we pair up with our OG Members as Mentors. As the Community has matured in their crafts, many are now full-time at it and some are even now signed as Artists & Songwriters. To accommodate the growing demand and the Professionals that prefer daytime hours, we’ve created an additional event that has yet to be coined and is held on a day that best works for all involved.
