La mechanique de l'amour

stefie.jpgStefie Shock's new album La mechanique de l'amour came out this week.

His catchy pop/rock songs and his deep, Gainbourgesque voice have made him one of Quebec's best known musicians.

But he also made headlines a few years ago when he spoke out about his problems with anxiety and panic attacks. He's now spokesperson for Revivre, an organization that helps people with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.

Stefie Shock will be participating in Malade, a Radio-Canada special about mental health that will air Friday, May 6.

Miracle Fortress is the work of Graham Van Pelt.
