Siavash Ghomayshi (Persian: سیاوش قمیشی), born 1945 in Ahwaz, Iran, is an Iranian song writer, singer and music producer. He began his work in 1971 in Tehran, Iran


He started his career as a composer when he was just 14. Siavash holds a Master’s degree in classical jazz from Royal Society of Arts in London, England, where he majored in pop music. 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 Ebi, Dariush, Sattar, Mansour, Leila Forouhar, Aref, Firoozeh and many more. Ghomayshi wrote his first song, called “Ghayeghran” (“Boatman”) for Zia when he was 13.

In 1972 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 the United States.
