We recently hosted, Canadian R&B singer/songwriter “Shawn Desman” to the studio to work on his much anticipated album. Attending the session alongside Shawn was production team “Stargate”.
Over the past twelve years, Norwegian record producing and songwriting team Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel S. Eriksen (Stargate) have worked with various pop, R&B, and hip hop artists such as Beyonce Knowles, Lionel Richie, Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Shakira, and Jordan Sparks. This year the production duo won the 2009 ASCAP Pop Songwriters of the Year Award and in 2006 and 2008 the #1 Producers of the Year on the Billboard Hot 100.
From the start of his self- titled album released in the fall of 2002, Shawn Desman has experienced great success. The album featured three top ten singles (Shook, Spread My Wings and Get Ready) on the Canadian charts. His sophomore release Back for More featured a team of amazing producers such as Rodney Jerkins (Destinys Child, Michael Jackson), Tricky Stewart from RedZone (Britney Spears, B2K) and Perry Alexander (Keshia ChantÃ©, In Essence). Shawn is currently working on his junior release with producers/songwriters Christopher Stewart, Scott Storch, The Clutch and Stargate. The new album is said to bring about a new sound and a new Shawn Desman; something that he is happy about and looking forward to sharing with his fans.
