Early life and struggle[edit] Kher was born on 7 July 1973 in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. His father Mehar Chand Kher and his mother Chandrakanta were from Meerut. Kher's father was an amateur musician whose performances of traditional folk songs were a regular household event.[5] Kher's first brush with music hence, came in his childhood.[6] Brought up in a musical atmosphere, from his school days, he was enchanted and fascinated by music and used to listen to his father's Indian folks songs all day.[7] Even as a four-year-old, Kher revealed a natural musical talent and he would often impress friends and family by belting out songs with his prematurely powerful voice.[8] At the age of 14, Kher left home in search of a guru or an institution to further his musical training, and he embarked on years of classical and folk music study. According to him, "It was because I wanted to pursue my passion for music. It required me to stay in isolation".[9] He also attended music classes and would teach the same to students for just Rs. 150 per session to maintain himself, taking care of all his personal expenses from lodging to food, plus his education and music expenses.[10] Although he couldn’t find the right guru or a school, he started learning music by listening to it. He listened to Indian classical singers like Pandit Kumar Gandharv, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Gokulotsav Maharaj and later even Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Lata Mangeshkar and their contemporaries[11] He then experimented with a family friend's Indian handicraft export business till 1999.[12] His depression phase started and he even attempted to suicide once, in the beginning of the year 1999, when his business collapsed.[13] He went to Singapore
and Thailand, and stayed there for six months. Later, after he relocated to Delhi
with his family, he graduated from Delhi
University through the correspondence program[14] [15] In 2001, Kher left New Delhi
for Mumbai, the epicenter of India's highly competitive music industry, to seek his fortunes as a professional singer. For a while, Kher struggled, living in cheap residence, hostels and eking out whatever musical work he could find to make ends meet.[16][17] Career beginnings[edit] Jingles[edit] He moved to Mumbai
in the year 2001, where he began his foray into the music industry.[18] When he moved to Mumbai, he already had a few friends in Mumbai
who were connected to the film industry. His name was recommended to musician Ram Sampath, who was then looking for a different voice for a jingle for Nakshatra diamonds. Kher later reminisced the jingle as an one which did not bring instant recognition but fetched him Rs.5000 ($100) which he needed desperately at that time "just to survive".[19] His foray continued by singing jingles for TV and radio commercials, receiving critical acclaim for his unique style of singing. Some of the brands that he sang commercials for are Coca-Cola, Citibank, Pepsi, IPL and Honda Motor Cycles.[20] Playback singing

I remember how I first heard of him. I had asked Mehboob, our lyricist, for a new voice that is earthy and strong, and he said, I have just the person for you. That voice can only be that of Kailash!' And he sent Kailash to meet me. The moment I heard him, I knew that here was a voice that was so wonderful, and which had its own unique space.... I want to say that Kailash Kher's voice has something that had been lacking a lot – it had pure soul! Allah Ke Bande is one of my all time favorite songs.[22]
