Sawchuk graduated from The Harris Institute for the Arts Production
program. His first few breaks came in 1991 when he landed the job
of engineer at Arnyard Studios in Toronto. Between '91-'95 Sawchuk
helped record such albums as Our Lady Peace's "Naveed"
and "Clumsy" (Sony/BMG), among others.

Universal Music Canada signed Sawchuk and his alternative rock project
