Formed in 2001 by singer Paul Laine and guitarist Chris Matheson, the two songwriters shared a common desire to find their own sound, uncaring of the current trends. During the search for the rest of the Shugaazer line-up, they enlisted studio session drummer Pat Steward (formally of Bryan Adams & The Odds) to play on their recordings. During this time Pat suggested Roland Churchill to fill the drummer's chair, as Pat continued to tour with the Matthew Goode band. Shane Demers was only a natural choice to complete the band, as each member had played with him in different bands at different times.
