The article focuses on acoustic punk singer and songwriter Jeffrey Caissie who is originally from Calgary, Alberta. Jeffrey Caissie made his start in a number of punk bands, an element that is still apparent in the acoustic style of his solo debut album, 'I' m Just Trying Not To Lose My Head.' Backed by sometimes band members, The Beatrats, Tim Schweiger on electric guitar and Justin Perkins on organ and harmonica, the songs all feature hooks galore, practically begging for the full band treatment. The lead man in a number of Calgary punk bands, Caissie is now the main operative behind Meter Records' U.S. affiliate and also fronts The Fragments in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
