Folk Roots Singer/songwriter
Skylar Bouchard is no stranger to adversity.
He was institutionalized in 2019 for mental health and addiction issues. Through that he has rebuilt himself and shares his story through music, long form writing and public speaking engagements in 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's new single "Screen Door" can be found on all streaming sites and his first memoir piece "The Night I (almost) Escaped Rehab" will be published in July.
Skylar Bouchard has a communications degree and is active in the recovery community of his hometown, Winnipeg, Canada.
