I'm a sophomore at a college in the Midwest United States, majoring in Political Science, likely minoring in Music as well. I write a growing blog, The New Age of Politics, on American politics and current events, but of course I can never write as often as I want to.

I also love singing; I'm in the Concert Choir here, and I also sing whenever I feel like it. In fact, I'm probably singing right now! It's 4 a.m., you say? Well first of all I'm probably still awake thanks to all the work I have to do, but even if I am asleep, my roommate last year told me I sing in my sleep. What do I sing? Anything from Bach to the Beatles, to modern progressive and symphonic metal bands that you might not have heard of.

I like to call myself Bassitone. Why? Well, technically I'm a Baritone when I sing, but I can sing the bass line perfectly well, thank you very much, at least to a point. Granted, basses and baritones sing the same line most of the time, but I don't know, there's just something about the low notes that appeals to me. If anything, that's the hardest thing for me as a singer: not giving into the temptation to sneak down to the lower line when the bass section splits.

I don't have any videos of me singing anything up on YouTube or any other sites yet, but I'm working on it. Drop by my blog; I love writing it and it kills me a little inside when I don't have any time to write a new post, especially when something big happens in the news.
