Shawn Fernandes (better known as Shawn Desman) (born on 12 January 1982 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian R&B singer of Portuguese descent.
According to his own account, in his youth his friends referred to him as "Dez, man" - thus creating his artistic pseudonym Desman. His self-titled breakthrough album in 2002 featured three top ten singles ("Shook", "Spread My Wings" and "Get Ready") on the Canadian charts. The album went on to achieve gold certification in Canada.
His follow up, Back for More (2005), with more sexual lyrics, reached number fifty on the Canadian airplay charts. His single from that album, "Let's Go", reached number six on the MuchMusic Countdown. He is currently signed with Sony BMG Music (Canada). Desman is also known for sporting the "sidehawk" hair style, a sort of diagonal mohawk. "Spread My Wings" was a featured song in the movie Kangaroo Jack. Desman was also spotted in the movie Honey alongside Jessica Alba, performing his song "Sexy".
