This Composer Scores NBC's "This Is Us"

Siddhartha Khosla writes the music that underscores the emotional drama on NBC's hit show "This Is Us". He'll tell us about his process which sometimes involves sobbing on his guitar, and what it was like to write the music that was heard by 38 million people in the climactic "Super Bowl Sunday" episode. Siddhartha also shares the soundtrack to his own life. When he was a baby, Siddhartha's parents had to send him back to their home in India while they were at school in the United States. His mom would ship cassette tapes of herself singing traditional Indian songs to him, which formed Siddhartha's musical foundation. He discovered rock music as a kid in New Jersey when he flipped on the radio one day and heard R.E.M. Siddhartha is the frontman of his own indie band called Goldspot, and also composes music for the Hulu Marvel series "Runaways", the Lionsgate drama "The Royals" and more.
