About Jackie Patillo

Executive Director of the Gospel Music Association (GMA)

Jackie Patillo’s professional journey tells the story of one who is consistent; determined. Patillo successfully launched her career serving artist and developing Christian and Gospel products at Star Song Communications.  There she signed and developed Phillips, Craig & Dean and Sierra. Patillo was promoted to Vice President of A&R in 1995, and later launched Star Song’s gospel division.  Patillo was recruited to season the A&R department at the Benson Music Group, in 1997.  At Benson, Patillo continued to forge her reputation in artist development (Natalie Grant).  New opportunity came in 2001, when Integrity Music hired Patillo as General Manager of the Gospel music division. There she built on Integrity’s foundation; with the launch of Integrity Gospel, the new label home for all gospel and urban praise and worship albums. With artists: Joe Pace and The Colorado Mass Choir, Israel and New Breed, Alvin Slaughter, Lisa McClendon, and Stephen Hurd.

By 2006 the road turned to New York City, when Max Siegel called on Patillo to be VP of A&R and Artist Development for Verity Gospel Music Group (Sony Music) and head up the creative division for the largest gospel company in the world.  In an every changing music industry environment, Patillo rebuilt the department personnel and  quickly saw the gold record success of Marvin Sapp with his crossover hit “Never Would Have Made It“.  Patillo has facilitated the recordings of  Verity veterans Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Byron Cage, Kurt Carr, and Dave Hollister to name a few.

Patillo exited Verity in late 2010 and is currently the Executive Director of the Gospel Music Association.  “Gospel music is more of a calling than a job for me. I am totally aligned with the mission of the GMA and am honored to serve those who are called to spread the gospel through music.  ” says Patillo.



About the Publisher Online Pitch Event

Have you ever thought: “Wow I think I have a really good song. If only I could get a legitimate publisher to listen?”

Through GSC’s affordable Publisher Online Pitch service you can have your song or songs heard by a reputable publisher from wherever in the world you live and without the expensive cost of travel.

One of the most important elements of this service is that you will be connecting with a publisher, creating a relationship with this publisher and learning the pitching process professional songwriters utilize every day.

Here are the details!

  • This is a member-only event.
  • Members can take advantage of the “Listen Only” option for only $20 before pitching a song.
  • This event is limited to 30 song pitches.
  • Once you purchase the POP event you will receive a confirmation that will contain your step by step instructions for logging into the webcast.
  • If you purchase a song pitch, you will need to email your song in mp3 format along with your photo (jpg format only) and lyric (Microsoft Word format only) to [email protected] by 11am the day before the event. (Please list your name and where you are from on the top of your lyric. GSC wants the publisher to connect with you.)
  • Guitar vocals and keyboard vocals are acceptable. You do not have to have a full demo for this event.
  • The publisher will only listen to the first verse and the chorus of your song.
  • The publisher may or may not comment on your song. This event is not intended as a publisher evaluation service; although in most cases, the publisher will offer constructive advice.
  • This is a real publisher pitch opportunity. The publisher will either PASS on your song OR he may choose to keep your song for further consideration.
  • You are encouraged to stay involved in the webinar while all songs are listened to and here is why:
    • Out of respect for the other participants.
    • Should the publisher choose to comment on a song, you will learn from what he has to say.
    • If a publisher takes a song, you will want to connect with that songwriter and possibly co-write with that writer.
