Sound Check : Mercies - ‘Clouds’
"HelloGiggles is very excited to bring you an exclusive premiere of the indie trio, Mercies’, track ‘Clouds’! Compared to the likes of Beirut and Fleet Foxes, these folkies continue to deliver!
Mercies will be releasing their new EP, The Ballet, on March 27th. After the success of their debut album, Three Thousand Days, it’s without a doubt this will be a highly anticipated release. Consisting of some new material, some reworked material, and the score for a ballet commissioned by The Charlottesville Ballet, this release will serve just as unique as the band itself.
Tucked in the woods of northern Connecticut is the barn/recording studio/rehearsal space that Mercies calls home. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Josh Rheault, with the help of his family and friends, restored the barn in the Fall and Winter of 2010/2011. Not only were 2×4’s cut, concrete poured, and electricity run, but Mercies found it’s humble beginnings through this restoration process.
Mercies began in the winter of 2009 when friend, collaborator and drummer Sammy Dent joined Rheault. The duo spent the Fall and Winter of 2010/2011 recording their debut album Three Thousand Days in the space now simply and affectionately referred to as “The Barn”.
Now joined by bassist Jordan Flower, Mercies have produced yet another masterpiece. Chronicled on The Ballet you will find a little bit of new, old, and just as the titled states, music for a ballet. The EP features ‘Music for a Ballet: Light’ and ‘Music for a Ballet: Dark’. Both pieces make up the composition for The Charlottesville Ballet choreographed by Audrey Fenske.

"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. Following the success of her acclaimed book, “A Purpose For The Pain,” which documents her journey from self-destruction to her new outlook on life through a series of heartbreaking and inspiring journal entries, Renee is now channeling all of her creative energy into her music career with her new band, BEARCAT. Her hauntingly beautiful voice, which has been compared to the likes of Fiona Apple, Zooey Deschanel and Kate Nash, has landed BEARCAT a highly coveted spot on tour with Never Shout Never this spring. The band has just started a kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/AErDWH) to help fund their upcoming album, and have raised over $1k in the first week!

Throughout her life, Renee Yohe has always believed in the value of telling her story. The platforms have changed from social media, to books, to public speaking engagements, and most recently, a film based on her life starring Kat Dennings and Chad Michael Murray (due in 2012). 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.
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.
Renee’s eclectic talents and triumphant experiences create a compellingly notable project with BEARCAT. With a new album, a spring tour and a film due out in 2012, this is set to be their year.

Check out Emii’s Video Interview with The Insider here:
“Sometimes I just want to listen to a really good pop song. It’s hard to describe Emii, who showed up to hang out with me wearing boots inspired by Boba Fett from Star Wars, and a bra made out of glass. She’s part Lady Gaga, part Amy Lee from Evanescence and half-way through out interview she busted out in song and proved to me that she was all voice.
Having already score a hit when she released Mr.Romeo with Snoop Dogg, she is back with a new girl anthem Stilettos. It’s a love story about a girl, a boy, and her shoes. What more could you want?” - Keltie Colleen, The Insider
