Michael P. Nelson of the Island Ear spoke with Chris Carrabba, who by himself is Dashboard Confessional. Despite this, he still considers ‘it’ a band, “No, it’s a band. I think it’s definitely an expression of me, but it’s a band. I feel like it’s a band even if it’s just me. This is a strange way to look at it, but for a good portion of the set, or sometimes the whole show, it’s just me and a guitar, and I still feel like it’s a band. Because I have this audience that’s participating as if they are members of the band. And they outplay me.” Islandear.com has since removed the article.
