Chris Carrabba Bio
Chris went on to college to procure a degree in education while simultaneously playing with The Vacant Andys, and later with The Agency. For several years, Chris taught at an elementary school in South Florida and played with the group, Further Seems Forever. Dashboard Confessional was born when Chris recorded the “Drowning” EP with Fiddler Records. “I started (Dashboard) as a side project from the band I was in,” says Carrabba, “I was going through something really tough at the time and since I don’t write in a journal, this is what I did with it. It was a good way to get it out of my system. I never thought anyone would hear these songs, but I played some for my friends and one of them who owned a little label talked me into recording.” The name Dashboard Confessional comes from the song The Sharp Hint of New Tears. The line “On the way home, this car hears my confessions,” brought to mind the phrase “Dashboard Confessional.” Having received his first guitar from his uncle, Carrabba took only a mild interest in his musical talent, preferring to skateboard. He taught himself to play at the age of 15, and recorded his first solo album, The Swiss Army Romance, for the enjoyment of family and friends Carrabba was a special education teacher prior to his success with Dashboard Confessional, often keeping a guitar in his office to write songs during downtime.
