Touch decided early on that she wanted to pursue a career as a musical performer following in the footsteps of her mother and grandfather who had made it to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Touch made a name for herself by staying in the underground scene working with artists such as Gadbo, One Baby, Diztruktif, and Doc Nasty.
