Chris Ender Carrabba is currently the lead signer, songwriter, and guitarist of the mostly-accoustic emo band Dashboard Confessional. In fact, he used to be all of Dashboard Confessional, until he was joined by several other talented musicians.
Chris wasn't always in Dashboard, however. His first serious band was the Vacant Andys, followed a short stint with The Agency. After The Agency, Chris joined up with Further Seems Forever. He started Dashboard Confessional as a side project, and it soon spiralled into something bigger than FSF, so he's now doing Dashboard Full time.
Chris learned to play the guitar when he was 15. He hasn't stopped yet.
