'This Is Us' Composer Siddhartha Khosla Moves to ASCAP
Film and TV composer Siddhartha Khosla, known for scoring NBC's hit drama This Is Us, is now part of the ASCAP family.
The performing rights organization -- the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers -- will now represent public performances of Khosla's extensive music repertoire. His original song for the Emmy-winning tear-jerker This Is Us, "We Can Always Come Back to This," topped Billboard's Blues Digital Song Sales chart for four consecutive weeks, and earned the composer a best song/recording for television nomination from the Guild of Music Supervisors last year. Khosla, who grew up between the U.S. and India, also co-penned "Invisible Ink," which Mandy Moore performed on the show's current season.
“Siddhartha is one of the most promising talents in film and television composing today," said ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. "His work for This Is Us brought his music into the homes and hearts of millions of TV viewers and Hollywood is lining up projects that deserve his singular touch. We are excited to welcome Siddhartha to the ASCAP family."
Outside of This Is Us, Khosla is an in-demand TV and film composer on a wide range of projects, creating music for ABC comedy series The Kids Are Alright and Hulu's Marvel's Runaways. Later this year, he'll score Netflix's hip-hop film Beats and Hulu's Looking for Alaska, a limited series based on the novel by John Green. He also scored E!'s The Royals and composed original songs for musical film Basmati Blues.
Adds Khosla: "The immensely talented and passionate folks at ASCAP are industry leaders in championing and advocating on behalf of composers and songwriters. I feel incredibly fortunate for this opportunity, and am absolutely thrilled to be part of the ASCAP family for the years to come."
