Sawa began her career in November of 2006 as a solo singer and songwriter. A few months later, she got the chance to be a part of the soundtrack project of the well-known Nintendo DS game "The World Ends With You." Sawa wrote the lyrics for 18 songs and sang 8 songs including the opening theme "Twister." In November of 2009 Sawa participated in the movie project version of the game, "Movie001" by MMM that was released through iTunes.
In 2007 Sawa and Hizmi began to create original songs together which became the beginning of the unit SAWA. When they created enough songs to put together an album, they released the album titled "333" in December 2008.
They started performing their first live shows together in 2009. In October 2009 they released their first EP "Figure and Shadow." Right after the release of the EP they welcomed Zizi as an official member to SAWA.
