Dashboard Confessional + The Front Bottoms + Madi Diaz

Chris Carrabba, the lead singer of Dashboard Confessional, has somehow managed to maintain a whiff of "punk" or "indie" cred even while purveying tame pop-rock to mass audiences. The truth about Carrabba is that he’s a decent mainstream singer-songwriter with a pleasant voice, whose tunes sound like the AM Gold version of emo.
