“Unbeknownst to Motherhood, they were the start of my rock and roll salvation; I'd reached a point where the only music I listened to was Rod Stewart's first solo album. It's a great record, but I wasn't in a good place musically. Chris Thompson made me go see them, and I loved them; I needed to see the passion again, and they were so damn cute. Now, some four plus years later, that I find myself party to what's under the hood of The Mums it's even more exciting and inspiring. Amazing people making amazing music to shake both your ass and your fist to! I love them.”

- Peter Rowan, Co-Founder of Halifax Pop Explosion and Pop Montreal, Founder of Greville Tapes Music Club

“Motherhood is one of the most influential bands to come out of Fredericton in the past decade, if not THE most. Their sound and style are incomparable. Definitely a band we'll still be talking about for years to come.”

- Erin Bond, Station Manager, CHSR
