SESAC, originally the Society of European Stage Authors & Composers, is the smallest of the three performance rights organizations in the United States. SESAC was founded in 1930, making it the second-oldest performing rights organization in the U.S. SESAC is also the fastest-growing PRO in the United States. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, SESAC deals with all aspects of the business, from creation to licensing and administration. The company also has offices in New York City, Los Angeles, London, Atlanta and Miami. [ About us] . SESAC. Retrieved on 2007-07-20.]

SESAC touts its small size:: If the phrase 'quality vs. quantity' ever mattered, SESAC is the place. While SESAC is the smallest of the three U.S. performing rights organizations, size is its largest advantage. SESAC prides itself on developing individual relationships with both songwriters and publishers.

Whereas ASCAP and BMI operate on a not-for-profit basis, SESAC retains some income as profit. [ [ Music in the Maqrketplace] . Better Business Bureau. Retrieved on 2007-07-20.] While ASCAP and BMI distribute all performance royalty income to their composer and publisher affiliates (less an administrative fee), SESAC retains an undisclosed amount of performance royalty income.Fact|date=July 2007 SESAC is also unique among the US performing rights organisations in that it does not offer open membership – one must be approved to join. [ [ How to affiliate] . SESAC. Retrieved on 2007-07-25.]

SESAC originally strove to support underrepresented European artists, hence the original name. As this objective diminished, the company has represented a wider range of artists and genres. SESAC's affiliates roster includes Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Robert Johnson, Bryan-Michael Cox, Nate "Danja" Hills, RUSH, Coheed & Cambria, Young Love, The Faint, Rapture, and more.
