Chris Carrabba

Best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the acoustic-alternative band Dashboard Confessional, Chris Carrabba recently released a solo album paying tribute to the artists he most admires. In a folk-punkish plaint somewhere between Neil Young and Paul Westerberg, Carrabba croons heartfelt takes on Guy Clark, John Prine, Justin Townes Earle, The Replacements and Archers of Loaf.
