With a platinum debut album, a sophomore Juno Award winning album for Best R&B/Soul Recording, chart-topping singles & videos, movie roles and international accolades under his belt, singer/dancer/songwriter/producer Shawn Desman is poised to launch his highly anticipated fourth album.
From the moment he released his self titled debut CD in the fall of 2002, Shawn Desman has enjoyed phenomenal success. His album spent an incredible 49 weeks on the SoundScan Top 200 sales chart and produced two Top 10 singles and two #1 videos.
Desman's visibility then soared to even greater heights after the subsequent release of his sophomore album "Back for More" which produced a #1 hit single, three Top 10 hit singles, and also garnered him a Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording. His high-energy, infectious single, "Let's Go," exploded onto the Top 40 radio chart after just 1 week, peaking at #1 proving he is a superstar entertainer worthy of all the critical acclaim and destined to be at the forefront of the global music stage.
His most recent project after a five year hiatus was his highly anticipated third album "FRESH". The first single was the Gold selling hit "Shiver," a chart topping smash. The MMVA nominated video for "Shiver", choreographed by Luther Brown of So You Think You Can Dance Canada and directed by RT!, is a classic piece reflecting Shawn's musical vision through movement.
The second release off the album, Platinum selling single "Night Like This" reached #1 in Canada, and the video marks his return to his roots in dance music boasting 100+ dancers in the music video. The video reached #1 on both the MuchMusic and MuchMoreMusic Charts consecutively as well as garnering MMVA for Video of the Year. His third Platinum selling single "Electric" also reached #1 and is again bringing his audience to the dance floor.
Desman like many other accomplished entertainers, still finds time to perfect his craft by co-writing and producing songs for other artists including Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, Faber Drive, Keshia Chante, Kreesha Turner, among many others.
Hot on the heels of his FRESH album Desman is poised to release his fourth studio album "ALIVE" in a way no other artist has before. His new album will launch in conjunction with a movie set to the music of his new release. The movie will air on MuchMusic starring Shawn Desman, Heartland's Kaitlyn Leeb, Degrassi's Melinda Shankar, and Lost Girl's K.C. Collins and will provide audiences with a brand new way to experience music and visual celebrity content.
It's undeniable that Desman's fourth highly anticipated album "ALIVE" featuring his Gold selling chart topping single "Nobody Does It Like You" and "Dum Da Dum" will represent a tremendous leap in the next direction for a young man who has spent most of his life working diligently at becoming a world renowned entertainer, with personal and professional accomplishments that leave an indelible mark on the human experience.
