"You Can If You Try" marks a distinct change in the songwriting of Papa Muse. From hard hitting progressive rock and grunge to a newer flavor of dance-able world inspired music. Unlike many of his songs that come together quickly, this song started years ago as a simple groove pulled out for miscellaneous jams with other musicians. Something to get loose to. The lyrics and the bridge were then written over the span of several years.


Papa Muse first recorded the song at his home while living in Florida 2007 - 2012 while first learning how to use audio recording software. The original midi drums, bass guitar, and jembe, have now been replaced by fab musician Charlie Shew. Papa Muse recorded the guitars and vocals and mixed the track. He also made this DIY video at home, and we think it is just quirky enough to give you insights into his world.


We hope you enjoy the empowering message of this song and will pass it along to entertain and inspire your friends. We can all use a positive message sometimes.
