Artist bio

Forged from the creative mind of singer/songwriter Siddhartha Khosla in 2006, and first discovered on Los Angeles radio station KCRW's flagship program "Morning Becomes Eclectic," Goldspot's ear-pleasing and catchy sound has been described by LA Times Magazine as A hint of George Harrison at his transcendental best.

Goldspots tunes a blend of New Jersey, New Delhi, and new-Alt stem from Khoslas immigrant heritage and American sensibilities. His Indian parents came to the US in the mid-seventies to make the American dream their own. Their son was born on these shores, and the family kept its cultural roots alive though music, playing old Indian movie soundtracks in their home. As a kid, Khosla learned to nail a lyric by copying those Bollywood singers, and as a teenager, he embraced Western bands as well, fine-tuning his melody-making by listening to The Smiths, The Cure, The Beatles, and Paul Simon. Today, Khoslas musical roots inform his songs and convey a sound that has a cross-cultural appeal. The bands instrumentation -- from traditional Indian instruments like the harmonium, to the Greek bouzouki, to 80's omnichord synthesizers is engagingly unique.
