"This is an absolutely stellar, beautiful first release, which could be likened to, and on a par with, acts such as Jacks Mannequin, City And Colour and even some Third Eye Blind. With his début EP “Human Minds” in the works, it wont be long before he is hitting the airwaves across the country." - GotGrog.com
"From Brighton, UK, Wayne Tomsett is one of the few artists who completely embodies every reason why unsigned music is just as worth listening to as signed or mainstream artists. His debut release, “Deceiver”, a folky, acoustic track, is beautiful in every area- the arrangement, composition, and performance is as flawless as it gets." - RedFluxRadio.com
"Tomsett surprises with his acoustic folk/pop offering, and even more so with his vocals. Broken and quite brittle, his singing voice carries emotion in every note. Wayne has a natural ability to keep his music exciting. Beautiful, uplifting and kind – this is definitely one to remember." - SQ Magazine
"Wayne has a nice clear sound and lyrics that have meaning to him and others. Adding this to his intrinsic understanding of song structure, melody, harmony and rhythm makes for a remarkable listening. So take a listen to him" - Trashcan Radio
"The single’s subtle opening of acoustic guitar and strings laid gently under vocal harmonies instantly grabs your attention. The phrasing of the song is great; each section building into the other and creating more emotion as the story unfolds. Wayne has clearly demonstrated his love and understanding of a good melody here as well as songwriting as a whole" - AltSounds.com
"Next up we have one of my favourite tracks on this particular podcast. When I was told about it I really didn't know what to expect. It's by a guy called Wayne Tomsett. Wayne is a metal vocalist, and most of the stuff I've heard from him has been particularly savage. But when I heard this, I was really, really blown away. I expected shouting, I expected it to be really heavy. I didn't in a million years expect anything like this" - Sound & Motion Podcast
"Wayne Tomsett sings like the imaginary lovechild of Brian Molko and Tracy Chapman" - Quiet Rebel
