The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: SCL Event: An Evening with the Composers of Fargo, Feud, Legacy, 24:Legacy & This Is Us - Sean Callery Sean Callery  

Emmy-winning composer Sean Callery has a total of 16 Emmy nominations and 4 wins, making him one of the most nominated composers of all time.  Callery composes the music for hit series such as Showtime’s award-winning drama “Homeland,” starring Claire Danes, ABC’s “Designated Survivor,” starring Kiefer Sutherland, Fox’s series revival “24: Legacy,” CBS’s hit Sherlock Holmes inspired drama series “Elementary,” Netflix’s Peabody Award winning “Jessica Jones,” and “Bones,” which is Fox’s longest-running procedural drama. 

In 2016, Callery won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for “Jessica Jones.”  He also received a nomination for his score for the Steven Spielberg produced, “Minority Report.”  With 10 Emmy nominations for “24,” Callery is the only composer to get nominated every year for a series that ran more than 3 seasons.  Known for composing the show’s suspense-driven scores, Sean composed for all nine seasons of “24,” as well as the 2008 TV movie “24: Redemption.”  Callery received an Emmy nomination in 2015 for the limited series reboot, “24: Live Another Day.”  Of the nods he received, he won for Outstanding Music Composition three times.  In 2013, Callery was nominated for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for “Elementary,” and was recognized in the same category for “Homeland" in 2012. 

In 2011, Callery scored another Emmy® nod for “The Kennedys,” an eight-part mini-series that starred Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, and premiered worldwide on the Reelz Channel.  Callery’s other projects include series such as Fox’s “Minority Report,” “The Finder” and “Backstrom,” Hulu’s 10-part series “The Confession,” CBS’ “Shark,” NBC’s “Treasure Hunters,” and the feature film “Small Time,” starring Christopher Meloni. 

Callery has conducted his own works with the Tenerife Film Orchestra and Choir, at the first MOSMA Festival in Malaga, at the World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent, and most recently in Krakow for their 10th Annual Film Music Festival.

The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: SCL Event: An Evening with the Composers of Fargo, Feud, Legacy, 24:Legacy & This Is Us - Siddhartha Kosla Siddhartha Khosla  

Siddhartha Khosla is a film and television composer, as well as singer/songwriter/producer of the critically acclaimed band, Goldspot.

Siddhartha recently scored the first season of NBC’s hit Golden Globe-nominated drama series, “This Is Us,” starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and Sterling K. Brown.  The show was television’s biggest breakout hit of the year, adored by both audiences and critics alike.  Within the series (Episode 16 “Memphis”), Khosla composed the original song, “We Can Always Come Back To This,” which reached #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts for 4 weeks in a row. He also scores the Lionsgate TV drama “The Royals,” which gives an inside look into the lives of a dysfunctional British royal family, starring Elizabeth Hurley. 

Upcoming for Khosla is Hulu’s original Marvel series “Runaways,” and the feature comedy “Fat Camp.”  He also scored the upcoming film drama “Liv/The Sounding,”  as well as the musical film "Basmati Blues,” for which he composed original songs, starring Academy Award-winner Brie Larson and Golden Globe Award-winner Donald Sutherland.  Khosla’s scores have previously been heard on network comedies, such as Fox’s “Grandfathered,” starring John Stamos, and ABC’s “The Neighbors,” starring Jami Gertz. 

Khosla began scoring for television and film while fronting his acclaimed band, Goldspot, which was first discovered on KCRW’s  “Morning Becomes Eclectic.”  NPR described Goldspot as “An inventive sound and independent vision,” and the Sunday Times UK called it “the best band to come out of America in years.”  In 2013, the band’s album “Aerogramme” captured #1 Album of the Year on the Los Angeles Times’ pop music editor's year-end best albums list. 

Siddhartha’s Indian-born parents came to the US in the mid-seventies to make the American dream their own.  With only eight dollars in their pockets upon arrival, they were forced to take night jobs while they completed graduate school during the day.  They had no choice but to send their toddler son back to India, where Siddhartha  was raised by his grandparents.  During this time, when international phone calls were prohibitively expensive, music became central to Khosla’s life as he listened to his mother sing to him on cassette tapes she mailed from America.  Khosla’s song “Evergreen Cassette” is about this very experience, and was featured in an episode of  “This is Us.”  Khosla’s love of music and connection to his Indian heritage were kept alive by his parents once he returned to the US, as they played old Indian movie soundtracks in their home.

In November 2013, Khosla was invited as the musical guest for First Lady Michelle Obama's Diwali celebration at the White House, where he delivered an emotional performance of several of his original songs.
