Music in NBC’s “This Is Us”

One of the unsung (if you will) aspects of the hit NBC series This Is Us is its unusual musical score by Siddhartha Khosla. For a sidebar to this week’s Variety cover story on the show, editors asked me to profile Siddhartha and discuss his acoustic guitar-driven, often subtly emotional music. Khosla, the son of Indian immigrants, has a fascinating background and is the prime moving force behind the band Goldspot. He wrote a song for This Is Us that shot immediately to no. 12 on iTunes, and Universal Music Group is preparing a soundtrack album to be released later this year.
