Josh Krajcik, the rock singer/songwriter who came in second place on “The X Factor” U.S. in 2011, has announced that he is recording his 2012 album. And three of his collaborators are award-winning songwriters/producers Steve Kipner, Julian Bunetta and Andrew Frampton.
What do Kipner, Bunetta and Frampton have in common, besides working with Krajcik? They have also had successful collaborations with singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield.
Frampton is the head of Phonogenic Records, a Sony Music affiliate whose artist roster includes Bedingfield and rock band The Script. Frampton has been a producer and songwriter on most of Bedingfield’s songs. Kipner and Bunetta co-wrote and co-produced Bedingfield’s song “Touch.”
Out of these three songwriters/producers, Kipner has the most experience. He is a songwriter and/or producer of a slew of hits that go back to the 1980s. Some of his most well-known songs include Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical,” “Twist of Fate” and “Heart Attack”; Wilson Phillips’ “Impulsive”; 98 Degrees’ “The Hardest Thing”; Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle”; The Script’s “Breakeven”; and Cheryl Cole’s “Fight for This Love.”

“The X Factor” executive producer Simon Cowell has said that Krajcik will get a Sony Music deal. It has not yet been announced which Sony Music label is signing Krajcik, but it will most likely be Columbia Records or RCA Records.
As previously reported, Krajcik is doing a Pepsi-sponsored concert with former “X Factor” U.S. contestants Rachel Crow and Stacy Francis on the weekend of January 28, 2012, in Orlando, Florida. “The X Factor” U.S. judge Paula Abul is hosting the event. More details are to be announced.
