Vulnerable, smooth and honest all describe writer and performer Skylar Bouchard.
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.
He was institutionalized in 2019 for mental health and addiction issues. This crisis mixed with Skylar's relentless wit inspired his first memoir piece
"The Night I (almost) Escaped Rehab"
which was published in 2020.
Skylar has a communications degree and currently lives in Winnipeg where he is active in the city’s recovery community and continues to create compelling content.
