Local singer-songwriter Regina Ferguson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her first full-band record, Movin’ On.

Featuring an eight-piece band, Movin’ On is a blend of roots rock, soul, and pop.

“Tracking at a boutique, one-room cottage recording studio in Charleston (Fairweather Studios) has given my songs a very homegrown vibe and allowed me to support my local music community,” Ferguson says on her campaign page.

Pledge awards include a sticker, digital download, CD copy, signed vinyl, admission to the release show, a copy of a handwritten lyric book, a signed ukulele, and a private acoustic concert.

The Kickstarter deadline is Thurs. July 7, and regardless of how it pans out, Ferguson’s album-release show is set for Thurs. July 21at the Pour House with legendary bass player for New Orleans’ funk outfit the Meters George Porter Junior and Maryland-based rockers, Little Bird.

The singer will also drop a new video next month filmed by Alex Veazey.
