Born in a Hindu Kayastha family in Jabalpur, Shrivastava got his first big break with film Kanyadaan in 1993. Among the singers who sang in this movie, there was Lata Mangeshkar who sang his first song - Oh Sajna Dilbar, a duet with Udit Narayan which became popular in radio. But the film and the rest of songs went unnoticed. The same thing happened with Jaane Tamanna, but he bounced back with Aao Pyaar Karen. One track "Haathon Mein Aa Gaya Jo Kal" was a hit. His other films are Salma Pe Dil Aa Gaya and Shastra. The chart buster "Kya Ada Kya Jalwe Tere Paro" from the film Shastra got him in the limelight once again. In 1995, Shrivastava was the second ever judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa.
Shrivastava sang a number of hit songs such as "Sona sona", "Shava Shava", "Gustakhiyaan" and "Gur Nalon Ishq Mitha". He won accolades for his work in Kunwara, Tarkieb and Shikari in the year 2000. In 2001, his success continued with the movie Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai. In 2005, he was a judge on the talent hunt show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005. The following year he turned to direction with his short film on child prostitution, "Sanaa". In 2009 he made a cameo in the film World Cupp 2011 and returned to television as a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2009. His semi-classical song Mora Piya from Raajneeti became a hit in 2010.
On the international front Shrivastava has collaborated with artists such as Akon, Julia Fordham and Wyclef Jean. Together with Akon, he has launched an India-wide talent search on the website hitlab.com which uses music analysis technology to predict the hit potential of new songs. Other international artists he has collaborated with include Dominic Miller, Shakira, and T-Pain.
Shrivastava was married to Vijayta Pandit, actress and sister of music composer duo Jatin and Lalit Pandit and actress Sulakshana Pandit. They have two sons, Anivesh and Avitesh. His elder brother, Chitresh Shrivastava, owned Eyeline Telefilm and Events, the event management company implicated in the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan black money incident. Chithresh died in a car accident in 2011. Adesh was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in December 2010 and underwent chemotherapy.
It was reported in the media on 31 August 2015 that his cancer had relapsed for a third time since 2010 and that he had been hospitalised for more than a month. He died, in a coma, at 12:30 A.M.
