On February 5, 2009, age 17, Richardson replaced Chris Storey of All Shall Perish as a touring member. In early 2010, Richardson left All Shall Perish and was asked to join Born of Osiris as a full-time guitarist.

In late 2011, Richardson parted ways with Born of Osiris. Then, in early 2012, he joined Chelsea Grin.

On September 21, 2015, Richardson chose to leave Chelsea Grin and form his own solo project.

In 2016, Richardson released his debut solo album entitled I.[2] produced by Taylor Larson. The album featured ex- The Word Alive drummer Luke Holland as a member. Along with Holland, the album had many guest appearances from the likes of Periphery's Mark Holcomb & Spencer Sotelo, Vocalist Lukas Magyar of Veil of Maya, and Jeff Loomis.[2]
