seemed to show up and that I was merely catching them as they came by. Yes, I have
taken songwriting classes at the university so I am well aware of the various song
forms. There is the typical verse, chorus, verse, chorus; the verse chorus, verse,
bridge, chorus; the verse, verse, bridge, verse, and then of course the hymn form, which
is basically all versus used mainly in classical, church hymns and maybe sometimes
jazz since many jazz tunes come out of musical theater. I never really cared much
about writing and sounding like anyone else and my song structure often varies
immensely. And it is often that my voice also morphs depending on the song I have
written, or rather what song has shown up. I wrote an acoustic pop/ jazz tune with all
verses, like the hymn form that one would ordinarily be done in the pop and jazz world.
One of my songwriting friends, after hearing this song, suggested that I should write a
bridge for the song. But in the end there was nothing else left to be said or expressed in
this song, so I chose to accept the song as it came to me. I came across this video of
David Bowie talking about being authentic and it really hit home to me. https://

Check out Saskatchewan Magician Roger Boucher!
Roger's summer is getting busier all the time! To name just a few Roger will be performing at the inaugural Rotary club Rib Fest July 15-17, for the 5th time performing at Exhibition in Prince Albert August 2, to performing August 6th at the Casino in North Battleford for the 3rd time in the year. He has many repeat clients. He can even perform in French. This is really exciting for Roger as he will be a full time performer (hypnotist and magician) as of July 27. He has cast of his safety net and will be working to perform across the country and over in England in May of 2017! Here is just a bit of what people say about Roger.
Roger, your perfect mix of talent, timing and intuition made you the most talked about element of our Hands for Histio fundraiser. Every one of our guests felt like they were part of the show!
Hands for Histio
“We hired Roger to perform at our annual staff in-service. He was amazing! Not only did he leave us in awe with his magic…but his sense of humor left many in tears. This is the second time I have seen Roger and I cannot wait to watch his show again. I highly recommend Roger for any private or corporate event.”
