"His music is original, thoughtful, sometimes eclectic, superbly arranged and always well played  - In sum, this is a delightful gem of an album in search of a patient listenership"

- Pete Feenstra Get Ready to Rock Radio 

"It's hard not to view Townend as a sort of latter day Mark Knopfler. His lyricism and fretwork both share echoes of the former Dire Straits leader " 

- Elmore Magazine New York 

"This ability to conjure up vivid imagery is a constant throughout the 14 tracks that comprise ‘Ticket to Memphis’ and it’s a rare thing for an album to hold your attention from the opening lines of the first track to the closing lines of the last "

"With ‘God Bless America’ it seems evident that they have moved ahead, running onto a new path of irresistible modern, top notch music, always with a blues edge at heart but aided by a keen eye towards the  Americana future. This is a true delight, an album to savour."  - Blues Magazine NL  

"With its strong hints at Americana-cum-blues and rocking drive, this is easily one of the best of British bands out there, and Gold Fever an album to enjoy.'- Elmore Magazine NY 

"The message is in the lyrics, get this, get goldfever. I feel this is Richards best collection to date, in his own imitable style and likely to be seen as an excellent opportunity to cross over from the secular blues world to more mainstream. The songs evoke imagery, often thought provoking, as only Richard can do"    - Blues In Britain  

"This is a simply lovely album from a UK outfit with a blues-cum-Americana outlook, feel and beauty.Townend is a mighty clever lyricist, a guy who can work a theme and run a rippling roll of fretwork and melody to match the thinking. The result is a genuinely individual and engaging musical take and outlook." -   Cashbox Canada

"Richard Townend is perhaps one of the most prolific songwriters in the British blues scene. Since 2011 he has released 10 albums as a soloist and with The Mighty Bosscats. The fact that he can, even at this pace, still write outstanding songs, was proven once again with Boiling Pot." -  Wasser Prada

"With its' high production values, standard of musicianship and impressive lack of filler material Boiling Pot has the makings of something rather special" - R2 Rock n Reel

"...........including the exceptional and exceptionally atmospheric ‘Hang An Innocent Man’, prove Townend is a great writer as well as musician" -  Blues Matters
