"Well here’s a New Brunswick rock and roll fantasy come true. Earlier this year Keith Hallett, Mike Trask and Adam Mowery teamed up to record a song together. What’s It For was released last week. A dirty little blues number accompanied by an equally grubby music video shot by friend and collaborator Matt Legere on 16mm film, What’s It For is the song and the question. The answer: for the good of all things rock and roll. This one’s all vibe." 
- Matt Carter, Grid City Magazine
