“Wyand's shows and recordings demonstrate some serious guitar playing and passionate singing. She also displays a sense of humor that ranges from the rather subtle to practically in your face. That being said, she will bring a smile to your face or a tear to your eye if you focus on the lyrics. If you focus on the musicianship, her skillful command of the fretboard will impress every guitarist in the room”” - Peter Zorb
