"As with most venue promoters I am sent numerous demos from would be artists, many of which are of high quality. It is rare, to say the least that I receive one that blows me away. This was certainly the case when I first heard "
"I slid off to the Chill Out stage, to sit in the decorated dark cool room, watching the mirrorball splash light over the paintings of mushrooms and abstract art on the walls while David Wyatt sang and played some truly beautifully crafted songs". From www.efestivals.co.uk
"David Wyatt will almost certainly find himself branded as Britpop, a special folk-roots brand informed and influenced by key singer-songwriters; two generations of Buckleys, Nick Drake and most recently, David Gray and Damien Rice. China On Paper Planes is the moderately pretentious title of his debut album, a well-balanced collection of deeply personal songs covering the majority of the singer-songwriter bases. Love, tolerance and innocence all claim their allocated spaces on the lyric sheet, though nothing is too obvious and Wyatt wraps the majority of his words deep within shrouds of concealment, and delivers them with a voice which skips octaves with ease without ever being too showy. My favourite track is “Daisy”, arguably the simplest song on the record, and a throwback to the Southern Californian troubadour days of the early 70s. Backed by a supremely talented band, with a wealth of experience throughout the music biz - bass player Neil Segrott is both Ryan Adams and Jay Farrar’s soundman of choice when they hit this part of the world - Wyatt is possibly only one breakthrough song and a chunk of good fortune away from the big time. A serious debut." - Rob Forbes from www.nighttimes.com
