About Touch Music Group
Touch Music Group stands as a beacon of innovation and creativity within the music industry. Based in the vibrant city of Chicago, Illinois, we are an independent record label comprising a diverse roster of exceptionally talented composers, songwriters, and vocalists. Our mission is clear: to produce music that transcends genres, elevates human artistic potential, and makes a positive impact on the world.
Who We Are
At the core of Touch Music Group is a collective of musical entrepreneurs dedicated to fostering clean, marketable creativity. Established in 2005, our journey began under the name Pathway Records, evolving into PLG Music before transforming into the powerhouse it is today. Founded by William Deephouse Wilson and Al Hotmix Holmes, alongside influential Chicago DJs such as Ed Get Down Crosby and Farley Keith, our initial goal was to provide a positive, dance, and house music sound for Chicago DJs and artists.
Today, we've evolved into Touch Music Group, with a focus on creating groundbreaking compositions that defy hyper-sexualized and hyper-criminalized trends in music. We strive to develop the potential of artists, musicians, songwriters, and composers to communicate positively through their craft. Our desired global reach extends to artists, producers, writers, and musicians from around the world. We offer full-scale production services for our signed members, spanning both the US and UK. Our extensive catalog, cultivated since 2005, has adapted to modern times, leaving an indelible mark on music and media history.
Our Vision (Long Term)
Our vision is rooted and deeply centered around serving people through the powerful medium of music. It involves delivering messages that resonate with the themes of God's grace and human potential. The core of this vision lies in the use of positive emotional lyrics and uplifting music to convey these messages. By intertwining spirituality and the limitless possibilities of human potential, Touch Music Group aspires to create a meaningful and uplifting impact on the lives of those who experience our music and media. The overarching goal is to foster a connection with you the audience, providing you with not just entertainment but also a source of inspiration and encouragement.

The journey of Touch Music Group began in 2005 and has seen transformations, challenges, and triumphs. Founded as Pathway Records and later evolving into PLG Music, the company witnessed shifts in ownership and direction. In 2010, William Deephouse Wilson took sole ownership, recognizing the need for a new direction and stronger corporate support.
The turning point came in 2012 when Will met Scott Oliver, a music and choir director with over 20 years of production experience. Their collaboration marked the beginning of a new era, leading to the establishment of Touch Music Group. Since then, the corporation has flourished into a super brand, symbolizing innovation, positivity, and musical excellence.
At Touch Music Group, we are not just creating music; we are shaping a cultural movement, inspiring positive change, and leaving an enduring legacy in the world of music.
