Whatever Happened to Chris Richardson?


Surprise, surprise!

For the past few months, last year's American Idol hottie Chris Richardson has been working on his debut album in Miami, FL with none other than Ill Factor (aka Ivan Coralliza). Ill Factor is mostly known for his work on Roisin Murphy's "Overpowered" in 2007. He co-produced some of the LP's eclectic cuts, including "Primitive" and "Checkin' On Me" and "Tell Everybody."

Listen to my interview with Roisin Murphy in which she talks about Ill Factor and how he moves around the studio soundboard at "Nintendo" speed. Roisin was more than impressed with this young production prodigy.

The first fruit of the collaboration between Chris Richardson and Ill Factor is the  middle of the road, mid-tempo ballad "All Alone." Nice vocals, but overall it is a little too bland for me. With Ill on his side, Chris should be able to crank out something a little more edgy and distinctive. Watch Chris and Ill Factor jam in the studio here. I'm looking forward to hearing more tracks Chris/Ill tracks soon. (Click here to download "All Alone.)
