Don’t be confused by the group sounding name. Dashboard Confessional is a solo male performer named Chris Carrabba. Kind of…in the beginning anyways. Now they are a proper band with three other members.
Dashboard Confessional has been hanging around with some esteemed people. They toured with U2 at the beginning of his career and had an album that was co-produced by Canadian Daniel Lanois. Not too shabby company!
Hailing from Florida, Chris Carrabba began working under the moniker Dashboard Confessional in 2000 with the release of his debut album, The Swiss Army Romance. Since then they have released six other albums.
Confessional lately has been returning to their earliest of sounds. Stripped down, very little instrumentation, sincere lyrics, and a male voice. Simplicity is the order of the day. You will occasionally hear strings, but the focus is the guitar. The sound has been labelled as emo or indie rock. They name The Beatles, Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder as influences.
