Jan introduced James to the Worlds Leading Independent A&R Company Taxi, where James was given many opportunities to present his music to industry professionals of high caliber. Taxi's annual Road Rally in Los Angeles, California was Boucher's first chance to perform three nights in a row at the convention as an artist. During his last return to Syracuse, Boucher's old demo Fit For Love was selected by local radio personality Tee to air on his show Live From The Box, 87.7FM WVOA.

He acquired a great aesthetic to his unique music style under their guidance and has continued to find freelance work on up and coming releases. Rap, R&B, Trap, Hip-Hop, Rock, Electronic; no matter what the genre. His professional attitude and passion for music will be a great atmosphere to work with.
