Shadmehr was a child prodigy with an innocent sensuality, one that seems to be of his own invention. At the age of (4), signs of artistic sensations appeared on his face every time he heard a song or a tender voice from the TV or radio, or even from his own parents. Young Shadmehr began studying music with the encouragement of his brother and mother. He learned to play the piano and the violin just before he was 18 years old. The guitar is also an instrument which Shadmehr learned to play in a dexterous manner.
at age 17, he entered a school of arts in Tehran and in a short time showed great intelligence in composing and playing music. After receiving a music diploma, when pop music was forbidden in Iran, Aghili entered the "music school of television". Aghili composed a great deal of music for other singers. Finally, in 1997, his first album was presented, Bahareman ("My spring"), which was a collection of classic and folkloric music played and arranged by Aghili (violin, guitar, piano, keyboard). In the same year his voice was heard in Mabood, his first vocal music, and afterward he continued work that resulted in Mosafer ("The traveler"), his first complete vocal album. In 1999 he created a revolutionary album, Dehati ("The villager"), with rock and roll, 6 'n' 8 and popular rhythms.
However, none of his songs were permitted to be played on public media (i.e. TV). Shadmehr worked hard to get a permission for his Adam o Hava (Adam & Eve), an album that was supposed to be released in 2001. However, not only he did not, but also, he was banned to work as a singer, musician, or to appear on TV shows. Having left with no better choice, he decided to leave Iran in 2002, in order to continue his music in Canada , away from any restrictions.
Khiali Nist ("No Worries"), Adamforoush ("Traitor", 2004) and "Popcorn 2006? and "Destiny 2009? are his most recent albums released since his move to Canada and the United States. In addition, Shadmehr acted in two movies, namely, Pare Parvaz (2000) and Shabe Berahneh (2001). He is the first Iranian who entered Mandolin in Iranian musics in (Mashkook) and (Yekari kon) songs from his recent album Destiny. Shadmehr addicted to his work; he's a perfectionist who spends hours in the studio.Shadmehr is definitely a promising star with an extra ordinary talent.
