"No one should take lightly standing on a stage and trying to BE Frank Sinatra. But Richard Shelton, the man who portrays him, is quite simply phenomenal. He captures the essence of the man perfectly. His voice has exactly the right tone; he has that twinkle in his eye; he has that anger that sometimes flowed out of every Sinatra pore."
- Mike Young – BBC, ‘Rat Pack Confidential’, London
"Richard Shelton is a superior singer who tips his hat to a legend with grace and elegance on An Englishman In Love In L.A. , an album that Sinatra himself would be proud of, well done! ★★★★"
- Edward Blanco, All About Jazz
"Shelton has a seemingly effortless style, unforced and highly polished – with this brio and panache he has a bright future."
- Mark Shenton, Daily Express
"What a voice! The future belongs to vocalists and Richard Shelton is going to lead the way there!"
- BBC Radio 2 – Gillian Reynolds, BBC
"His selection of material is as impeccable as his wardrobe, and his style is shark skin sharp."
- George Harris, Jazz Weekly
