I recently sat down with up-and-coming singer-songwriter Sofia. We had so much fun talking that I lost myself in a few places. What? I'm not a professional journalist. I am a butch lawyer who writes a blog, and I can count on one hand how many times I have actually sat down with another butch. What follows is (most of) our conversation.
Chris Botti: The trumpet doesn't care about the national anthem or anything, it's just going to beat you down every day. So you need to practice it hours and hours and hours a day; otherwise it will take control of you rather quickly.
It's certainly no secret that celebrities enjoy the finer things in life. Many have used their larger-than-life paychecks to collect an impressive inventory of very fancy memorabilia. Here are 10 of the most impressive collections amassed by superstars.
I got the chance to interview up-and-coming singer-songwriter Sofia recently. If you don't know who she is, you're going to want to. Think kd lang meets John Mayer.
When I am in Montana, mostly I simply embrace being in wide-open nature - just being, more than doing. With Montana's refreshing expanse of space and only the sound of the leaves and long, golden grasses moving with the breeze, my body responds strongly. I feel rejuvenated.

A mixture of folk, pop and soul, Johnnyswim can't be neatly packaged into one genre of music. But their sound has been compared to bands such as The Civil Wars (their earlier, happy days, of course), and it may even be suggested that their vocals closely resemble what Lauryn Hill and John Mayer might sound like if they recorded together.
Andy Cohen went on vacation a week ago, starting his trip in Montana with a bizarre: "Wait, Andy Cohen and John Mayer hang out together? In Montana...
There is something delightfully charming about a singer-songwriter's music when it teleports you to the beach without a care in the world. A calming paradise of sand, sun, palm trees, and good music.
We all know how easily an hour can escape us. And for this reason, it can be daunting when those hours turn into days, months and years. Life goes ...
Why do I get the feeling that I'm watching a train wreck about to happen every time I read something about Katy Perry and John Mayer, no matter how blissful the story makes their relationship sound?
Behind her colorful and bubbly pop personality, Katy Perry has had her share of relationship darkness and pain. She recently opened up about the devastating early days after her separation from outrageous comedian Russell Brand.
Sometime in the winter of 1958, I had the chance to hear Billie Holiday on her closing night at Boston's venerated Storyville. For reasons I can't recall, I chose not to go. She died less than a year later, at 44, and that was that for me and Billie Holiday live.
