The Temple consists of nine original songs and one cover song (Peter Gabriel's 'Solsbury hill'). The songs are best categorized as 'alternative rock with a sophisticated edge' because in addition to the characteristically alternative guitar chords, melodic hooks, and strong dynamics, the lyrics stand out as unique in their depth and dimension. Some comparisons to other singer/songwriters with a similar sensibility include David Grey, Dave Matthews, and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. The artist, Dhillon Khosla, was born and raised in Europe by a father who is a native of India and a German mother. The songs were written over a seven year period and were mainly written to reflect a specific and major inner transformation in the artist's life culminating with the title track 'The Temple.' The metaphorical nature of the lyrics ensures that each listener will be able to relate the words to a moment in their own life when truth prevailed over the easy road.
