Touch One Productions is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people through poetry
Touch One Productions has the most talented performers in the country working together in Charlotte and nationwide to bring the ultimate poetry experience to our clients. Our mission is to not only have you hear our poetry but to feel the poetry!
The organization was started unofficially in 2001 by Jaycee, BG, Bluz, Quentin, and Maze. We pulled together to bring a consistent poetry scene to Charlotte. We started our own spot, getting from under other promoters at the Deli on Nationsford Rd., and began "Feel Good Sundays" with Philip Glover and maintained that for a year. We then moved to the Liquid Lounge on Mondays and maintained that for a year.
Touch One Productions continued to build, adding new poets and doing small parties. In 2003, we all migrated to the NODA area and began doing poetry with our band at The Brick Top Lounge. With the help of Cantrell Miller, we moved across the street to the Wine Up in December 2003 and began Touch One Thursdays. Cantrell helped get the company started in 2005 and we have been going strong ever since.
