"Lead guitarist Joe Coombs was in imperious form all evening, starting from joining Beth for her Dylan cover ‘Blind Willie McTell’ to sharing some sizzling solos in true country style in the main set. A name we could be hearing more of in certain circles in the future. " Three Chords and The Truth UK review of Jaime Wyatt Show.
"She’s ably supported by her English backing band brought in to assist on the European leg of this tour, her guitar player from Yeovil ringing out some particularly expressive solos. Wyatt’s emotionally expressive voice is a great conveyor of heartache and allied to the songs’ trebly lead guitar licks and lonesome pedal steel, makes for a potent updating of the country rock and roots template." Mark Underwood's review of Jaime Wyatt Show.
