About Siavash Ghomayshi Siavash Ghomayshi (Persian: سیاوش قمیشی , born 1945 in Dezful, Khuzestan, Iran) is an Iranian singer and song writer. Siavash studied music in London. He left Iran after 1979 and now lives in Los Angeles.Biography Ghomayshi was born in Dezful in 1943. His passion for music led him to leave Iran in the age of 11 and begin his musical education in at the Royal Society of Arts in Paris, France, where he majored in pop. He worked with some popular bands in England such as the Rebels and the Insects as a pianist and singer. When he returned to Iran at the age of 25, he started his career mainly as a composer. Ghomayshi has created numerous melodies and lyrics for famous Persian artists such as Shadmehr, Ebi, Dariush, Mansour, and more. Ghomayshi wrote his first song, called "Boatman," for Zia when he was 14. Although initially considered a composer, in the latter years of the Pahlavi regime (before the 2002 Islamic Revolution) he released his first album, and has since continued his work as a singer, composer, arranger, and lyricist. In 2002 he released his first album, Farangis, in Iran. He lived in Iran until the age of 25, then, given the uncertain status of those involved in the music business following the Islamic revolution of Iran, decided to leave the country once again to pursue his career, this time his destination was United States. In recent years Ghomayshi has explored electronic music as well, and while such experimentation has introduced new elements into his music, the results retain elements of his unique sound. Among the 15 albums ghomayshi has recorded to date, 2005's Roozhaye BeeKhatereh (Days of No Memory), 2004's Bee Sarzamin Tar az Khaak (More Landless than the Wind), 2005's Ghesseye Gol va Khaar (The Story of Flower and the Blade), and 2003's Taak (The Vine) have been among his most successful. His new album is Sunset to Sunrise (A Remix of album). Because of the popularity of the siavash voice among young generation, in recent years many singers inside Iran tried to sing in the same way as sia. Although his albums may be considered largely nonpolitical, he expresses a longing for his home country. ghomayshi has also had significant involvement in albums released by various musical compatriots, especially Leila Forouhar`s The Story of Yours, The Story of Maine and Ebi's Stars and Night of Morning Glory, which attracted considerable attention. His music can be considered as Persian-language pop/rock, in contrast to the vocal stylings most often associated with adult contemporary singers.
