Moein was born in Najafabad, Isfahan. He was so fond of his birthplace that even though Tehran had become the Center of all artists, he still stayed in Isfahan and continued to perform at the "Shah Abbas" Hotel. He currently resides in Santa Rosa, California.
In 1982, after Writing "Yeki Ra Doost Midaram", he left the country. In one of his interviews, Moein actually explains that his song "Yeki Ra Doost Midaram" had been performed by Hayedeh (famous Persian singer before him) by the time he arrived to L.A.. However, it was his version which became very popular and lead Moein to his first hit. It's interesting to note that even today many people think Moein performed Hayedeh's song. Around this period his songs drew a lot of attention. Moein continued to produce hit after hit. Such classics as Kabeh, Havas, Esfehan, Miparastam, Paricheh. These were all great hits not only in Iran, but also outside of Iran.
