Benny Merchant's 'Back to Life' to be Featured in CROOKED ARROWS


Benny Marchant's newest single "Back To Life" has been chosen to be played in the May 25th release of the Peck/Branded Pictures Entertainment feature film Crooked Arrows.

Directed by Steve Rash (The Buddy Holly Story, with its 3 Academy Award nominations; Can't Buy Me Love, which introduced Patrick Dempsey; and the sequels to American Pie and Bring It On) and starring Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Crystal Allen (Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City and the feature film Maid in Manhattan, Gil Birmingham (Twilight Saga) among others is about a mixed-blood Native American eager to modernize his reservation. He is tasked with coaching the reservation's high school lacrosse team which competes against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League. Ignited by their heritage and believing in their new-found potential, coach and team climb an uphill battle to the state championship finals against their privileged prep school rivals. Crooked Arrows is an original, uplifting sports movie in the tradition of such classics as Mighty Ducks, Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Bend It Like Beckham–set in the fresh, contemporary worlds of Native American reservations, prep schools, and lacrosse.

"Back To Life" is the title single for a new LP that will be released on September 16th (UK) and September 17th (US) and will include collaborations with Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, Paul McCartney) and Kevin Killen (U2, Shawn Colvin, Elvis Costello) among other notables.
