Dashboard Confessional: “Tom Petty, Springsteen, Neil Young, and Pearl Jam…these are the people I look to,” says Chris Carrabba, the creative force behind Dashboard Confessional. “They do what they want and follow their hearts, going wherever their music is taking them. I look to those guys, and I start to think: how does it work for them? What were they holding on to, and do I hold on to that as well?”

With the release of his fourth full-length album Dusk and Summer, the Boca Raton, Florida resident is no longer simply an up-and-coming musician; he's a career artist. Dusk is certainly the most defining album of what has already been a remarkable career; on one end, it's a return to the full band sound of Carrabba's earliest, pre-Dashboard work, and yet also the most forward-thinking and innovative record he's ever recorded.

“When I started Dashboard six years ago, I was reacting to these other bands I had been in,” says Carrabba, referring to his time in the bands the Vacant Andys and Further Seems Forever. “At the time, I needed something...simpler.” If those bands were about being loud and filling a room, Carrabba's instinct was to strip it all down and let his voice and his guitar carry the emotions.

The All-American Rejects: Tyson Ritter (vocals/bass) Nick Wheeler (guitars/keyboards/programming) Mike Kennerty (guitar) Chris Gaylor (drums)

The All-American Rejects are a Stillwater, Oklahoma based band whose incomparable sound fuses modern power pop music with drum loops, rock guitar and infectious melodies and harmonies.

The duo that is known as The All-American Rejects is Tyson Ritter (vocals, bass) and Nick Wheeler (guitars, drums, keyboards, & programming). The band released their first independent album in the spring of 2000 securing spins on Oklahoma radio creating a massive local fan base. The songs compiling the album attracted opportunities for the duo such as mass local radio and press exposure, licensing on MTV’s Undressed, and opening bill for The Flaming Lips and Caroline’s Spine.

In the summer of 2001, The All-American Rejects released the E.P. Same Girl, New Songs and set out to tour the Midwest. By the end of the tour, the band had signed a recording contract with Doghouse Records (The Get Up Kids, River City High).

The All-American Rejects recorded their international debut album with producer Tim O’Heir (Superdrag, SamIAm, Sebadoh) in Brooklyn, NY. During this time, the band also filmed a music video for their first single "Swing, Swing". Their self-titled debut will hit stores October 15th [2002].
