“Jan and Dyanne are evidently partial to doing interesting and unique things in their music so I was very happy to contribute to the record – it was a lot of fun!” – Guthrie Govan (guitarist currently playing with The Aristocrats and Hans Zimmer)
Say Dyanne and Jan of Potter’s Daughter, “There really is no one who plays guitar like Guthrie - truly a pinch-me moment to have him play on our record. He more than deserves his spot in the pantheon of the all-time Greats!”
“It has been an absolute pleasure to play on your music. Very challenging and ever so much fun.” - Simon Phillips (drummer with Protocol, Toto, Hiromi, Mike Oldfield, The Who, Jeff Beck etc)
“…just beautiful...I love your voice, and chord progressions are sublime” - Jon Anderson (lead singer of progressive rock band, Yes)
“On first hearing of Blood and Water I was struck by its unusual and haunting melody and Dyanne's exquisite voice. To be a part of it was truly a wonderful experience.” - Annie Haslam (Lead singer of progressive rock band, Renaissance)
