Congrats to Arigon, who finally made her way to a magazine cover! This week’s “Shawnee Outlook” features a cover story overview of Arigon’s fantastic career as a singer, songwriter, playwright, actor and comic book creator.
The photo was taken by photographer/filmmaker Christopher Felver and is part of his new book, “American Jukebox.” The book is a collection of Felver’s journeys across America, meeting musicians of all manner of genres. Arigon met Chris in Los Angeles a few years ago. “Chris came to an radio appearance I was doing at KPFK-FM. He was a friend of Charlie Hill’s and when Chris found out I was a musician, he asked to take my photo. I had no idea I’d wind up in a book filled with many of my musical heroes,” said Arigon.
“American Jukebox” includes stunning images of music icons like Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, Randy Newman, Patti Smith and features Pete Seeger on the cover. The book is a large, coffee table sized book from Indiana University Press and all the photos have in the book are printed in sharp black and white.

“The fun never ends here at Wacky,” laughed Arigon. “I love my job. Not many folks can say that.”
