Aamir Saleem had humble beginnings. He started singing during the school years. His first guitar was paid for from working at a hotel as a receptionist during the summer holidays. He founded his first band, Image, with his friend Naveed Mugees on guitar and Alim Arshid on keyboard.
In 1987, he moved to Karachi and started singing with different bands to make money. It took him three years to record his first solo album, Musafir, in 1991. The album did well.
