J.R. Wilbur – “Can We Turn the Page”

Written by Brandon Watts & Staff


BWH Music Group and World National Indie Radio (WNIR) are hosting 'Songs For Change' radio special during the month of November. Music can influence, and even change, people, movements, and society. Sharing songs about peace and social justice, will ultimately remind the world of the importance of fairness, love and unity. J.R. Wilbur's song "Can We Turn the Page" is one of the amazing songs that will be featured on this special radio program.


“Can We Turn the Page” is a feel-good rockin’ jam that asks listeners to look past their differences and open their mind to a united future. A punchy, guitar motif leads the track accompanied by a steady drum beat and bass line that make for a tight, up-tempo groove that will make you want to get up and moving. Atop the infectious groove, Wilbur delivers energetic vocals through simple and memorable melodies.

“Where do we stand / Or back away / That we might live/ to fight another day/ We will have peace or will we rage / Repeat our past mistakes, or can we turn the page”

As the verse progresses, he builds upon his sound with invigorating harmonies that add depth to the melodies. Marking the hook of the song, a warbling organ bolsters the groove of the instrumental arrangement giving it a classic rock flair. Never leaving a dull moment, “Can We Turn the Page” breaks up the first and second half with a crunchy guitar solo adding a bit of twang to the pop-rock arrangement.

With an upbeat vibe, great lyrics, and a dyanmic performance, make sure to give the song a listen and check out some others from J.R.'s new album Mood Swings.
