..." a solo performer with a guitar, tambourine, and two drums going simultaneously. She sings like an angel, plays guitar like a demon, and her percussion creates a mighty sound. I’ve caught a few one-person bands over the years with mixed results. Wyand is undoubtedly one of the best I’ve seen". John Porter WCVE Radio

… "the best slide sound I've heard in years"
 
"Her vocal range is nearly limitless, and her delivery is heartfelt without sounding desperate.What really sets Wyand apart from her contemporaries is her deft manipulation of the slide guitar."
Angelina Scioll
 - The Phila. Music Forum
