Shelley Sings Dusty is the latest show brought to you by professional vocalist Shelley recreating those Dusty Springfield years for all who remember the original decades. She is now opening up a new and appreciative audience in the 21st century. As an authentic show it is styled as a flashback to those Dusty days when Dusty Springfield embarked upon her solo career, soon establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Timeless classics that everyone can enjoy include a favourite such as ‘Where Did Our Love Go’.
As a fan of US soul music, she brought many little-known soul singers to the attention of a wider UK record-buying audience by hosting the first national TV performance of many top-selling Motown artists beginning in 1965.
Shelley Sings Dusty Springfield
Partly owing to these efforts, a year later she eventually became the best-selling female singer in the world and topped a number of popularity polls, including Melody Maker’s Best International Vocalist. Although she was never considered a Northern Soul artist in her own right, her efforts contributed a great deal to the formation of the genre as a result.

She was the first UK singer to top the New Musical Express readers’ poll for Female Singer. To boost her credibility as a soul artist, Springfield went to Memphis, Tennessee. There she recorded Dusty in Memphis, an album of pop and soul music with the Atlantic Records main production team. Released in 1969, it has been ranked among the greatest albums of all time by the US magazine Rolling Stone. Also in polls by VH1 artists, New Musical Express readers and Channel 4 viewers.
