GSC “Member Monday”- remembering Pat Viglietta, NY.

At GSC we often say, “our members are never a number….they MATTER.”

If you have been a member of GSC or TSAI for very long, you will remember Pat Viglietta, his talented wife Cindy Mechem and their great songs. Pat rarely ever missed participating in a GSC Publisher Online Putch event or TSAI online event and I spent many hours mentoring with him on the music industry.

Cindy called to let us know that Pat went “home” last Friday after years of suffering from lung disease due to chemicals utilized for the purpose of etching and laying imported Italian tile.

Pat was an Italian master tile layer in New York and would often lay tile in the homes of celebrities like Mariah Carey.

One of my personal favorite songs of Cindy’s is where she wrote about hers and Pats first meeting and how he was wearing RED TENNIS SHOES!

One of my favorite Pat songs is “What Santa Loves Best is the Rapping!” And I have often closed our December publisher events with this song and we all had a great laugh!

Pat was quick to laugh, had a great sense of humor, was the biggest fan of Cindy and her music and loved his family.

Pat would tell me stories about his family and how they were raised. About his brother’s amazing achievements in the world of film, about his favorite food and running a pizza shop. About his son and where he worked and this great girl his son feel in love with.

He taught me a few Italian words like “pizon” which means “brother” in Italian and that is what he would call Lou Spoltore.

Many of our GSC members met Pat at Focus retreats that Cindy was attending.

I will close this tribute to Pat with my FIRST in person memory of him. We were having our GSC Mixer at the old CMA building and he and Cindy surprised me by showing up all the way from New York! It was a wonderful gift.

I love knowing my GSC members. I appreciate them sharing their life stories.

RIP our sweet pizon. You are forever remembered by your GSC family. I know all of your family in the other side was so happy to see you. I still hear your voice. I have your songs. We will do our best to be there for Cindy. And….you were loved.

GSC member Reesie Maher released her spoken word poetry album "Moving With" on May 15 under the name Cleo Childs. This album is the culmination of 2.5 years of writing about the journey of grief she experienced after losing her mom to Alzheimer's when she was 28 years old. Her mother was an English major in college and her grandmother, who is also one of her editors, was an English teacher for 30 years so she came by her grief processing tool of writing poetry naturally. With this spoken word poetry album, she hopes to show the path her grief took from having her mother and losing her mother, and the peace and acceptance she feels now. She also hopes to give an authentic and honest look at what her grief felt like so other people going through grief don't feel alone and feel community in their grief.

If you are struggling with grief, we encourage you to check out this project of healing and hope! Learn more at www.cleochilds.com.

Day TWO of GSC Focus Retreat!!!

What a great, great day. Thanks to Kendall Lettow of peermusic and and Nancy Peacock of Washington Street Music Publishing for coming out on a weekend and spending their valuable time with us.

In loving memory of GSC member and dear friend John Cirillo/songwriter GSC provided a full scholarship to the John Cirillo Scholarship Board for a GSC Focus Retreat. They accepted applications and after several months…they wisely selected a wonderful artist/writer Emily Lloyd who is attending the GSC Focus retreat event this weekend.

It was such an honor and joy to have Craig Lackey, (beloved by every songwriter in town) come out to the Focus retreat venue today representing the John Cirillo Scholarship Foundation Board and present a beautiful FREE GUITAR to Emily Lloyd from our friend Troy Castellano, Founder of Instruments For Education. Truly a very moving moment for me personally. Like all the “parts and pieces” coming together in a perfect magical, memorable event.

Thanks to all of the amazing Focus Retreat participants for another great day and I will see you in the morning at 8:00.

Love you Ruth Cirillo.
