Artist To Watch: I Am The Dot

"We fit together like a meaningless puzzle," sings Zach Tipton on the playful "Love Song for Camus." Tipton, who puts on a one-man show as the Denver-based project I Am The Dot, has a knack for layering vocals and seamlessly fusing together atypical instrument combinations. In this case, it's a synthesized steel drum playing through a major scale over a percussion loop—a surprisingly light and breezy pairing that plays perfectly with the higher tones of Tipton's voice. The I Am The Dot EP will be out soon on Brother Bear.
