Since its inception in 2004, the vision of Xcentric Records has been to record great gospel music, with the goal of eccentrically exposing this music to the world. Founder and CEO, Steven Daniels, brought that vision to life in 2004 with the label’s first release, and his second recording, entitled God Is Real. Stepping out and starting a record label was a big leap for Daniels, but the dream all began with his first recording in May of 2000. That recording eventually led to a surprise writing opportunity with national recording artist, The Mississippi Mass Choir. The Mississippi Mass Choir went on to record his song, God Is Keeping Me, in 2004 and released it on their album, Not By Might Nor Power in 2005. This blessed opportunity provided the push needed to carry forth the vision.

The God Is Real project featured Daniels' church choir, Shiloh Gospel Choir. It also had a guest appearance from national recording artist, Ricky Dillard. That release produced Daniels’ second opportunity to write for another national recording artist. And in 2007, the Chicago Mass Choir recorded and released his song, He's Alright on their album, Just Having Church.

In 2008, Xcentric Records released its second and most recent project, God Is Everything. This project fits into the quartet genre of gospel music, and it is a solo album featuring Daniels' father, Rev. Steve Daniels, Jr.

Xcentric Records is planning a powerful resurgence of music with several projects scheduled for release in the near future. There will be a new album coming soon from Shiloh Gospel Choir, an album featuring a new solo artist, and an album that will be Steven's first solo project. Stay tuned for these new recordings and releases coming very soon!
