Welcome to BuzzMusic, Regina Ferguson! We loved “Canyon Town," a beautiful reminder of the magic of love. The beautiful music was so well done too! We have to ask, can you take us through the creative process for this song? What was the inspiration behind it?

My latest single, "Canyon Town," is the third single off my new record. It was recorded all analog in Los Angeles with producer Matt Linesch. This song was inspired by my time spent in Montana, I travel there often, and the first time my husband, who at the time was my boyfriend, came to visit me, we spent the day in Yellowstone Nat’l Park. I was so in awe of the beauty. As we drove through this beautiful canyon next to a winding river leading down to a one-horse town, I was grateful to have my lover beside me and realized how sharing special moments with a partner can make them much more meaningful. The music video for "Canyon Town" was directed by Mara Whitehead; we chose to have me narrate the song and capture the love story using dancers.

You incorporate much of your environment into your music videos and lyrics too! How big of an inspiration are your surroundings to your music?

I spend much of my time travelling, an important part of the creative process. I get inspired when I go to new places or step outside my normal day-to-day. Perspective is a big part of the songwriting process for me. A lot of my songs are very personal, but I try to write in a way that can be interrupted by the listener.

How would you describe your music to any new listeners?

My music is a blend of folk-rock and traditional country music. I’m a songwriter and love weaving stories into my songs. I have a Southern rock influence from living in the South for so long. Still, the other elements of my songwriting and instrumentation come from Appalachia's more traditional folk music, like steel guitars.

Give us the Regina Ferguson origin story! How did you first get started on your musical journey?

I spent ten years living in South Carolina before I moved to Los Angeles. I got a music degree and worked as a singer in Charleston. My time spent in the South in my formative years greatly impacted me as a performer and songwriter. I grew up in Pennsylvania in a family of 11 children. I always loved singing with my siblings, and I sang in church and loved musical theatre. I’ve been musical my whole life, but I love performing my original music on the stage with a band behind me. It’s so special to make records, play them live, and see your music come to life.

What’s next for Regina Ferguson? Can we expect to hear more new music soon?

Yes! I will release more singles before my new album drops this Fall. The next single, “Fortune,” will be out on 4/21 and is the title track off my new debut album. I have some exciting shows in Los Angeles in the next few months and plan to tour my album in the Fall.
