Genya Ravan is a rock 'n' roll pioneer. Few performers in the music industry today can claim the longevity and respect earned by Genya Ravan.

Always a pioneer, Genya formed Goldie and the Gingerbreads in the early sixties, touring behind a string of European hits with the Stones, Kinks, Yardbirds and Hollies as the first All Female Rock and Roll band.

Later she resurfaced back in the US as the powerful voice of Ten Wheel Drive, one of the original horn jazz-fusion bands.

In the seventies she expanded her repertoire becoming the world's first independent female producer, with critically acclaimed records by Ronnie Spector and the Dead Boys.

Today, Genya Ravan has come full circle with a brand new album... 'Icon'. Mirroring her life, accomplishments, and the road she influenced and paved, Icon is filled with blood, sweat and tears, rock n' roll, the glitter of glam, a punk rock attitude, garage rock spirit, raw energy, anthems, ballads, heart and soul.

An awakening of rock n' roll swagger Mick and Keef would be envious of. There is so much, as this story tells more with the smokey lounge inspired "Comin Up The Hardway", to the alt-country twang and story-telling of "Away From You", from the Faces-esque big stage strut of "Fool For A Pretty Face" and her punk rock, autobiographical tale of CBGBS in "Don't Go In The Bathroom", to the late night NYC dive bar echoes of "Hard Way Out" and the oohhs, aahhs, and street corner doo wop girl group wall of sound of "Mean It", Icon takes you on an ambitious, inspired musical journey into the life of a true pioneer.

Genya Ravan has lived it, has given to it, and now delivers it. Originator, innovator, inspirator, hero, story-teller, singer, songwriter, producer, mover, shaker_ Icon.
