Exile (2011)

This album is a mix of folk/pop/alt/rock. All songs were written by Mehran. Andy Westhoven put his guitar solo on "Narcissist" and vocal on "Love of their own." Enjoy! 2011

WhatEver (2013)

This is a collection of songs both old and new. Several of them were written during Feb 2013. All the instruments--guitars, bass and keys as well as the lyrics-- are written, performed and recorded by me. I used the drum tracks from the Garageband and my Zoom guitar pedals. Quite possibly, You will note some errors in the timing, vocals and the mixes of these songs. They could not be helped since there was not enough time to correct the mistakes in one month. Coming up with 10 songs in that duration was not easy for me but I think it helped me more musically. Hope you enjoy them. 2013

Dancer in the sky (2017)

This is my 5th RPM Challenge (3 albums and 2 collaborations). It is also my 5th independent Album. All songs were written and recorded in 10 nights--one song per night--in the month of Feb 2017. The songs are all instrumental. Both this and my previous album, Garden Of Devine, are inspired by an accidental tuning of my electric guitar. They both are meant to convey a mixture of eastern and western sounds associated with our diverse world. About my recent album cover: A summer or two ago, I was looking out of my balcony and was admiring the view when I noticed the beautiful cloud in the sky. I decided to take couple of photos and promised myself to use them as my album cover someday. So I did for the RPM 2017. 2017

BIOGRAPHY

This is my 5th RPM Challenge. All songs were written, arranged and recorded by me in the month of Feb, 2017. I don't know what possessed me to do the RPM Challenge this year. Usually, this takes a lot of effort since all songs are written and recorded in Feb and ...(play violin here somebody)... I'm doing this all by myself.
