Skylar Bouchard is no stranger
He was institutionalized in 2019 for mental health and addiction issues. Through that he has rebuilt himself and hopes “to shine light on the darkness and fight stigma in mental health awareness.”
His album Tired of the city, released in 2017, was short-listed by the judges of CBC's searchlight competition. In 2018 he played more than 100 shows across Canada in support of Tired of the city.
Skylar has a communications degree and currently lives in Winnipeg where he is active in the city’s recovery community.
