Taking a breather from his long-standing emo act Dashboard Confessional, Florida-based singer/songwriter Chris Carrabba returned to the classic acoustic music that initially inspired him, forming the quartet Twin Forks in early 2013.
Along with mandolinist Suzie Zeldin, bassist Jonathan Clark, and drummer Ben Homola, Carrabba aimed the group in the direction of the stripped-down but hyped-up folk renaissance, putting his unique stamp on the style made popular by bands like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers. Influenced by the classic country, folk, and roots music he heard as a child, Carrabba spent several years developing his fingerstyle guitar technique, which he employed on a number of the tracks on Twin Forks' self-titled debut EP, released by Dine Alone Records in late 2013. Several months later in February 2014, the band's self-titled LP appeared. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
