‘Charlie Says’ released by IFC Films now in theaters

Congratulations to two of our very own GpsSongs artist who placed songs in this film!

Directed by: Mary Harron Starring: Suki Waterhouse, Hannah Murray, Matt Smith, Sosie Bacon, Marianne Rendón, Chace Crawford Years after the shocking murders that made the name Charles Manson synonymous with pure evil, the three women who killed for him—Leslie Van Houten (Hannah Murray), Patricia Krenwinkel (Sosie Bacon), and Susan Atkins (Marianne Rendón)—remain under the spell of the infamous cult leader (Matt Smith). Confined to an isolated cellblock in a California penitentiary, the trio seem destined to live out the rest of their lives under the delusion that their crimes were part of a cosmic plan—until empathetic graduate student Karlene Faith (Merritt Wever) is enlisted to rehabilitate them. Convinced the prisoners are not the inhuman monsters the world believes them to be, Karlene begins the arduous process of breaking down the psychological barriers erected by Manson. But are the women ready to confront the horror of what they did? Boundary pushing auteur Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol) presents a provocative new perspective on one of the most notorious crimes of the 20th century. #IFCFilms#CharlieSays

The Year Of Spectacular Men

Congratulations to GpsSongs artist Roger Loukes on placing his song “Tell me like you do” in the upcoming film.
The Year Of Spectacular Men !

One of the jobs i enjoy most in running my music publishing company GpsSongs is calling one of the many artist’s we represent and telling them one of their songs is getting used in a project !

Being a songwriter myself and I have had this happen many times with my own songs.. it never gets old ! Somebody cares enough about your art not only to want to use it in a project …..but pay you for it 😉

This looks like a cool film staring Lea Thompson (she played Michael J Fox’s girlfriend in the Back To The Future movies)
and two of Lea’s daughters are in the film as well.

Keep an eye out for…The Year Of The Spectacular Men
and an ear open for Roger’s song “Tell me like you do” ! #theyearofspectacularmen #gpssongs
