Born on 22nd February 1982 at hajariya VDC, Sarlahi district to Sadhu Ram Pariyar and Man Kumari Pariyar, Shiva Pariyar's childhood was full of naughtiness. ‘I used to steal mangoes, sugarcane, dive into deep well, hunt birds with my catapult, and climb tall trees. Once I remember when I encountered a snake while hunting for birds. I was fearless in doing those but now, I experience vertigo even if I look down from 2 stored building' shares Shiva.
When Shiva was 2 and half years old, his family migrated to Hajariya VDC becoming the permanent resident of the village. 'In my school, I was an average student but sometimes, I used to bunk my classes for not doing my homework', Shiva chuckles. While he was in his 7th standard, a national level regional musical competition was announced where each and every student had to go through a voice test to make the school authorities select the best capable candidate. Since, every individual was compulsorily made to go through the test; Shiva could not deny the challenge. ‘If the voice test was mandated to be undertaken among the interested individuals, I would never have had nominated myself because I was a very shy student and raising a hand for a challenge was impossible for me', Shiva shared. Dilli bahadur sherestha, his class teacher selected him after the voice test who soon became the candidate to participate in the regional competition. He finally participated in the competition and also won his first ever stage performance tendering the application of his name to be registered in national level competition. The boy who was out of focus in his school quickly became a popular name. Shiva won the regional challenge leaving 33 participants behind along with the respect and love from his school mates and teachers. It was only during his participation in voice test, Shiva discovered his love for music.
In 1996, Shiva participated in another regional competition for another level of competition happening in Kathmandu. At that time, he stayed in the hostel administered by Galaxy Public School for 17 days to practice for the musical challenge. For the challenge, he accompanied Dil Bahadur Sir, from the female part and sang the song 'Mathi Mathi Lek Ma Ma Jada Danfe Ra Chari Nacheko'.
After completing his SLC, he moved to Kathmandu for his further education. Till then, his inclination for music had already wooed a web for which he joined ‘Lalit Kala Campus’ to pursue his musical education that commemorated the start of his struggle for music. He could not complete the level since completing the subject ‘Compulsory English’ was not his cup of tea. Then, he shifted to Gandharva Sangeet Vidhyalaya, the school that taught classical music, owned by his music teacher Chandan Kumar Shrestha.
In 2002, Shiva participated in ‘national modern song Competition’ hosted by Radio Nepal and secured A-Graded Certification along with a gold medal. Following this, he recorded his first song Jati Birsyo Timro Yaad Auna Khojcha, written by Suresh Wagle in his own composition. At the same time, he learnt to play tabala with Rabin Lal Shrestha. In 2005, he released his debut album 'Mokshya'. Though he was not natured to sing contemporary music, the song ‘Phewa Taal Ma Sailee’ became a big hit. In 2008, he released an album Swayam on his solo composition and vocal. Songs like Alikati Nazar Timro, Timrai Nimti Makhamali Choli and Mero Bare unle Sodhe Maryo Bhandinu became major hits.
In 2009, another album Kadambinee was released. Written by Sheetal Kadambini Gurung in his solo composition for the album, songs like Kahan Thiyau Timi Ranga Mancha uthepachhii Aayau, Dherai Choti Maren Ma Ta profiled him as a good singer in Nepali music.
