Pyruz Payandehazad is a famous Persian pop singer, songwriter, guitarist and former frontman of Black Cats.


Pyruz came to the United States in 1977 to finish school but because he had a passion for music, he and his best friend Ebi Hamidieh started a band called Shish O Haft in San Francisco in 1984. Although he had originally wanted to be a drummer, he became a singer-guitarist.

In 1987 Pyruz met Shahbal Shabpareh, the founder of Black Cats. Pyruz moved to Los Angeles and became the band's lead singer. Together they released three successful albums.

Pyruz left the band in April 1999 to pursue a solo career. His first solo album, New Love, became a bestseller with its hit single "Baby Joon." He released two more albums that performed well, producing many hits like "Djembe", "Khaastegaari" and "Setaareh Baroon".

Today Pyruz performs with his band The Romantix, and lives in Los Angeles.
