Sheila Nahrvar was born in Gilan, Iran. She graduated from Shiraz University in English literature. From an early age, her passion for singing was nurtured and supported by her family. Sheila was also introduced to classical music and piano by the famous piano instructor, Mrs. Ohanjanin.

In 1995, Sheila and her family moved to Toronto, Canada. She began collaborating with the reputed pianist, Amir Rahbar, focusing on Iranian folk music.

Her first album, Javedanehaei Gilan, is a collection of new arrangements of inspirational songs by Amir Rahber from the original work of the late Ahmad Ashour Pour, and includes some folkloric songs from Gilan as a tribute to this beloved Province.
