Desiya was a dance music project from the '90s that consisted of DJ, remixer & producer Matthew Parkhouse (from New York) and vocalist Melissa Yiannakou.

In 1992, the duo released the single "Comin' On Strong" which topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart for a week in March of that same year. The song also peaked at #7 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart and #74 on the U.K. Singles chart.

After that, it seemed as if the duo faded into obscurity. These days, Melissa (now Melissa De Sa) is married with children according to her Facebook page. It is unknown what Matthew Parkhouse is up to these days.
