June 5th, 2012 – Orlando, FL – Renee Yohe’s musical endeavor, BEARCAT, have released their self-titled debut EP, today, on June 5th. 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; or from the film based on her story, Renee, starring Kat Dennings and Chad Michael Murray, which premiered at Florida Film Festival this Spring. From published books to film, connecting with others has always been important to Renee, and through BEARCAT, she is now able to do so using the most authentic platform, her music. Her hauntingly beautiful voice has already drawn comparison to Zooey Deschanel, Kate Nash, Fiona Apple and Adele by Filter Magazine, MTV Buzzworthy, The Insider, Hello Giggles, USA Today and Seventeen Magazine. You can check out a full stream of BEARCAT’s self-titled EP on AOL Music, here: or purchase it on iTunes, 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.

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. Gaining momentum on tour this spring with Never Shout Never, BEARCAT is ready to release their debut EP.

BEARCAT released their self-titled EP today, on June 5th. For additional information, keep up with the band’s social networks here:!/OfficialBearcat

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
