Dhillon Khosla was born and raised in Europe by a native German mother and a father who had emigrated from India. When he and his family moved to the U.S., Dhillon first pursued the study of classical piano at the Westport School of Music, performing at regular recitals and garnering the award for most promising musician. Several years later, he picked up the guitar and began to seriously study the art of songwriting and voice. He also attended the Berklee School of Music's summer program in Los Angeles and performed as front man for various local bands in an effort to further his performance skills.

After completing this extended "training" phase, Dhillon entered the studio and began working on his first album intended for commericial release; "The Temple." "The Temple" is the culmination of seven years of song writing. It is also the culmination of a long and deep struggle that is reflected throughout the language of the lyrics and provides a most visual and unifying theme.
