Pawankumar Ade hails from a tribal family living in Pandharkawda, in Yavatmal district in Maharashtra. His parents live in the village and are both daily-wage labourers. He has absolutely no musical background, but began to listen to music in his college and was attracted to Marathi Natyasangeet, while completing his Std 12 degree in music. He later moved to Pune to work as a watchman at a private bungalow, and came into contact with Pt. Satyasheel Deshpande who lived nearby. Satyasheelji saw the inherent talent in him and agreed to teach him. He started coming regularly to learn and then even lived with Satyasheelji for a few years, before he had to move back to his village due to family and personal problems. In the meanwhile, he completed his BA in music from Mumbai University.
Pawan currently lives with his brother in Mumbai where he works as a night watchman at a local bank and supports himself and his parents through his salary (his parents are not able to earn anything because of the current lockdown). Pawan also teaches music to young children and gives small performances, but all of that has come to a standstill because of the pandemic.
