Regina Ferguson is an Americana/Country/Country Rock, singer songwriter based in Topanga (Los Angeles), California, United States.

It’s rare to discover a true gem of an album from a relatively unknown artist…”, but Regina Ferguson’s debut album Fortune is the gem that Country Music People Magazine is raving about. Not only did her album earn a 5-star review but they also declared that, “Fortune proves that Regina Ferguson deserves to be a name as well known in alt-country as Margo Price or Sierra Ferrell.”

A singer-songwriter and front woman, Regina Ferguson finds repose in her cabin in Topanga Canyon, the place that inspired debut album Fortune. After performing extensively in the Carolinas, Regina moved to Los Angeles to focus on her artistry and to immerse herself in a city brimming with talent.

She has received recognition from LA Weekly for being a unique artist who “magically blends rock and roll with western music to create a distinct and original sound.” Produced by Matt Linesch, Fortune is a harmonious blend of rock and roll with western influences.

The album was crafted entirely analog, eschewing digital editing, and released as a AAA vinyl—a bold testament to Regina’s commitment to an old-school ethos. Regina’s raw, powerful vocals take center stage, creating a signature sound achieved through recording live with a stellar ensemble of session players.

Drummer Griffin Goldsmith (Dawes) and bassist Brett Simons (Chicago & Shelby Lynn) laid the foundation, accompanied by other notable musicians like Aaron Embry (Elliott Smith, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Jakob Dylan) on piano/B3 organ, and Ben Peeler (Jakob Dylan, Shelby Lynn) on steel guitars.

In her debut year, Regina Ferguson opened for Lord Huron at the Wildlands Festival in Big Sky, MT, took the stage as the opening act for The Wallflowers at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA and shared the spotlight with Allah-Las at the Topanga Days Festival.

Released on 10.3.2023, Fortune, signifies Regina’s notable emergence in the Americana music scene.

As she plans to tour her new album, Regina Ferguson is poised to become a well known name in her genre, captivating audiences with her timeless sound and enthralling live show.

Regina says:

Shortly after I moved to Los Angeles, I took my first trip to Lake Tahoe. Growing up on the East Coast without this stunning scenery, I was blown away by how beautiful it was. One of my favorite things to do when I visit a new place is get out in nature. I found myself walking through the Tahoe National Forest and while looking out at the vast valley of pine trees, a wind swept through and sounded like a freight train. The lyrics came to me, “I can hear the sound of the wind through the pines, like a rolling ocean I can’t stop my mind. They say it gets easier with time to leave a place like this behind.”
