“With roots in poetry, jazz, and rock, The Wyatt Act crosses lots of boundaries. The quick changes and unusual instrumentation blend perfectly with Guinevere’s slam poetry-derived lyrics.” – SF Sonic
“Guinevere Q has long been known ’round these parts to be a fast-talking, no-nonsense, down-to-party mo-fo with no worry of running out of things to say. ” – Evan Karp, SF Weekly
“…a unique band with a distinct sound and character, electrifying performances, and interdisciplinary roots.” – Lex Talks Music
“Exceptional musicianship and attention to musical detail, all while not giving a monkey’s ass about limitations and boundaries, both musically and lyrically.” – Jamsphere Magazine
“This is just excellent music all the way around.” – Stepkid Magazine
“’20 Motherfuckers’ speaks to the heart of being an artist in San Francisco through the last bunch of years, as the streets have increasingly emptied of the beautiful freaks who once defined the arts scene, replaced by people staring at their phones. It’s partly, but never completely angry and outraged. The anger is tempered by its own playfulness. It’s the kind of song that reminds you that smashing the system can be energizing and fun too.” – Annie Bacon, SF Critic
“Energetic, irreverent, and completely unpredictable!” – The Bandcamp Diaries
“The masterful mix of mayhem, chaos, melody and musicianship in The Wyatt Act is impossible not to notice” – Sleeping Bag Studios
“Top 5” – Rocksfanzine
