Renee Yohe’s musical endeavor, BEARCAT, is set to release its self-titled debut EP on June 5th. Today, FILTER Magazine is giving listeners a preview with the premiere of new song, “I Am Me” in this FILTER exclusive. The name Renee Yohe may be familiar to you from all the support work the non-profit organization, To Write Love on Her Arms has done in her honor. In April, Renee, a film based on her life starring Kat Dennings and Chad Michael Murray premiered at the Florida Film Festival. Check out Bearcat’s cover of John Lennon‘s “Instant Karma!” and another new track off the upcoming EP, “The Nothing,” on, Relix.com here. Check out “I Am Me” on FilterMagazine.com here. Pre-order the EP here.

Throughout her life, Renee Yohe has always believed in the value of telling her story. Renee’s acclaimed book, “A Purpose For The Pain,” documents her journey from self-destruction to her new outlook on life through a series of heartbreaking and inspiring journal entries. While, the platforms have changed from social media, to books, to public speaking engagements, connecting with others has always been the most important part. Renee first entered the public spotlight with To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit organization that aims to present hope for people struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury and thoughts of suicide. In December 2011, TWLOHA was awarded a $1million grant from Chase at the first-ever American Giving Awards on NBC. By sharing her own personal struggles, Renee and the organization have helped millions. Renee is now channeling all of her creative energy into her music career with her new band, BEARCAT. Her hauntingly beautiful voice has been compared to the likes of Fiona Apple, Zooey Deschanel and Kate Nash.

Through everything, music has always played a crucial and stabilizing role in Renee’s life. Her favorite bands helped her through some of her darkest times. Later on, TWLOHA would find it’s biggest initial support and exposure from bands that would wear the organization’s t-shirts. When the opportunity came to form her own band, the transition just felt natural.

Bearcat’s self-titled EP will be released on June 5th. For additional information, keep up with Bearcat’s social networks here:
