"X-CLUZIVE SOUL" was founded by WALTER JOHNSTON of Burlington , NJ. 'BIG WALT' as we know him comes from a musical background that included watching his older brothers who sang with local singing groups and his oldest sister became a legend in their church with her soul stirring vocal solos. It is because of this influence that 'BIG WALT' developed his love for the craft of vocal performance. He started his own music recording label back in 1977 named, MO-PHATTA ENTERTAINMENT LLC., where he worked with up and coming artist.

From rappers to male or female groups or solo aspiring artist, Walt believed the best way way to teach is to lead by example. Along with label mate Ryan D'Soul' Gibson of Lawnside, NJ they set out on a mission to satisfy their desire of building a major recording label. They started out themselves as a duet nightclub act. Walt sings in a sweet first tenor tone, Ryan in a rich baritone. They determined in order to have a full sound they needed a strong second tenor. Walt reached out to Dwayne S. Nixon - EL aka 'Sonni Dey' of Willingboro, NJ by way of Philadelphia, Pa. to fill the bill. The three were on their way except they were all solo singers.

Walt then reached out to Frank 'The Soul Man' Green who since the age of 2 years of old was an experienced gospel singer and in his adult years managed his own gospel group 'REALIZE'. After many nights and countless hours in Franks basement rehearsal space which they affectionately called the 'TERROR DOME', Frank groomed the singers into a harmony blending unit.

With the combination of Walt's vision and with Frank and his band joining the team, "X-CLUZIVE" now had soul and thus "X-CLUZIVE SOUL" was born. The band was now ready to market themselves as an ensemble that captures and delivers the SOULFUL SOUND of yesterday, along with the combined sounds of today and tomorrow. The image and show production created has the class and harmony of the Temptations, the sound with the energy of Earth, Wind and Fire & the R & B fun funky style of Kool and the Gang.

Fiery Guitarist 'Dangerous' Dave Peterson brings through his performance classic rock style. On special occasions or by client request, we are ALL blessed to have Ms. Shaunte 'Queen Diva' Lang whose powerful resounding vocal style reminds you of Gladys Knight or Jill Scott.
