Dashboard Confessional are an American acoustic/electric guitar emo outfit, which come from Boca Raton in Florida and which is led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Chris Carrabba

Dashboard Confessional was started in 1999, as a solo side project for singer and guitarist Carrabba from his regular rock band Further Seems Forever, but has since become his main act.

Carrabba would often bring friends with him to play live shows and in 2002 he decided to make line-up of the band he was then working with, John Lefler (guitar), Scott Shoenbeck (bass), and Mike Marsh (drums), its permanent one.

Dashboard Confessional have to date recorded four studio albums, 'The Swiss Army Romance' (2000), 'The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most' (2001), 'A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar' (2003) and this year's 'Dusk and Summer' . They also released a 'MTV Unplugged' session in 2002.

'Dusk and Summer', which was released in June, was produced by Daniel Lanois, who has worked with U2, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris and the Neville Brothers

Dashboard Confession shows have become renowned both for their intimitacy and enthusiastic crowd participation, in which Carrabba encourages the audience to sing large portions of the songs, claiming that this fosters a bond between concert-goers, and allows him and the audience to connect on an emotional level.
