Early Life[edit]

Goher was born in Lahore under the zodiac sign of Leo (astrology) As a child, Goher practiced music on a keyboard (music) he got as a gift. At 11, he sold his bike to buy his first guitar which he used to hid under his bed due to parent's restriction.[1]

After his high school exams, Goher suffered an accident and was confined to bed for six months. This gave him time and space to grasp every note in the music that he listens. With no formal training, Goher taught himself composition, song writing and singing. Later, he won in many college-level music competitions and gained momentum by performing at local restaurants in Lahore.[1]
