  • I Won't Cry Anymore by Genya Ravan

    “I Won’t Cry Anymore” the new single on Bongo Boy Records, written and produced by Gar Francis, unleashes a powerhouse with the vocal dominance of New York City icon Genya Ravan.


    For those of you who don’t know, Genya lead the successful all girl group Goldie and the Gingerbreads in 1962 and was signed by Atlantic boss Ahmet Ertegun. A strong woman with a powerful voice she lead the horn based rock/fusion band Ten Wheel Drive in 1969. With numerous albums and singles to her name, she is still a major force to be reckoned with.

     

    “I Won’t Cry Anymore” recaptures that authentic R&B of yesteryear and gives the listener a ringside seat to the evolution of a sophisticated women’s strengths and emotions.

    01. I Won't Cry Anymore

    Released: Feb 2nd, 2010

  • The wonderfully multi talented Genya Ravan contributes a Gar Francis song, “I Won’t Cry Anymore” with a powerful voice and a delivery that made me shiver.  This rock-blues tune reminds me of something that should be on Janis Joplin album, and hands out great choral harmonies in the bridge and a wonderfully R & B harmonized “whoo hoo hoo”. This woman can sing.  Powerful and pleasurable. -  Review by I Can't Believe My Earz

  • Gar Francis has done it again. He has supplied Genya Ravan with a big song for her new single. I Won't Cry Anymore is garage R&B with a hint of gospel and plenty of soul. Definitely a New York sound courtesy of Francis on guitar and keys, Danny Caruso on bass and Bobby Chen on drums. Ravan, a recording artist since 1962, whose voice o has aged really well, has no trouble delivering the goods. - Review by Here Comes The Flood (The Netherlands)
