Through his work in Further Seems Forever and Dashboard Confessional, Chris Carrabba has been one of the most successful and idolized scene-based songwriters of the past 15 years. His work in Dashboard has earned him three gold records, the lead single to the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack and even a stint at Madison Square Garden — not bad for a gig that was originally a side project. These days, his focus is on Twin Forks, a boot-stompin’ folk band he started with friends from Florida.

I caught up with Chris at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC to talk about the different stages of his career, how his mother’s education colors the words he uses in his songs and much more.
