Johnny Arson (1967-Present) is a Santa Cruz musician. He was the singer and guitarist for The Infamous. Following the demise of the Infamous, he changed his name to John Southern and took his songwriting in new directions (leading to an extensive recording project with Zeke Floro that was supposed to result in a new band). After relocating to San Francisco in the 1990's, he played in several short-lived projects, before losing interest in the music business altogether. As of 2010, he is studying Jazz guitar with Jim Ferguson while pursuing a BA in Anthropology at UCSC. He still enjoys playing and writing.
